The Chicago Bulls hold the No. 29 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, but they are in an unusual spot. Unlike most teams drafting so far back in the first round, the Bulls may be looking for someone to contribute immediately. With Derrick Rose out to start the season and Luol Deng's status up in the air after his pending Olympic experience, Chicago will need scoring from somewhere. Then again, maybe the 29th pick isn't the best place to pin their hopes anyways.
SB Nation's Tom Ziller has the Bulls selecting 6-foot-7 combo guard Tomas Satoransky from the Czech Republic in his latest 2012 NBA Mock Draft.
Satoransky is the 42nd-best prospect in the draft, according to Draft Express, but he was recently added to the list of invitees for the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago and perhaps a good showing would make the 20-year-old a more attractive player at the end of the first round. An interesting player still on the board when the Bulls select is Marquette swingman Jae Crowder.
