According to Joe Kotcoh -- a reliable skilled columnist featured on ProBasketballDraft.com (his own site) and SheridanHoops.com -- has predicted the Bulls to select former UCSB guard Orlando Johnson on draft night with the twenty-ninth pick.

Kotoch acclaimed Johnson as the pick twice so far since the NBA Draft lottery order was set.

Read the excerpts:

Mock 1:

"Johnson is solid all around, capable of scoring from outside or finishing at the rim.  Good athlete with ideal size.  Could continue to rise up draft boards with good workouts."

Mock 2:

"Johnson was one of the best scorers in the NCAA last year with his good shooting touch and ability to get to the rim. Despite not being a household name, Johnson could be a very good fit on a Bulls team that needs scoring and a player who can create his own shot."

I previously wrote on Orlando and how he could be a sleeper pick for the Bulls in the upcoming draft. Read that here.

Well guys, that's all for today, we've had a lot of work to do at HQ as we're forming the rest of the staff et al. See you all soon.
