The Chicago Bulls are no strangers to testing the international basketball waters for unique talent. After the 2012 Summer Olympics, there are five foreign standouts who should be on the team's radar in the next few years.

And no, Usain Bolt did not crack the list (although if that dude learned how to handle the rock, he could be a devastating point guard).

The United States was not the only country to display high-level talent in London. Each country in the quarterfinals had at least one player who is playing or has played in the NBA.

Spain pushed the Americans until the final minutes of the gold medal match, and the silver medalists received major contributions outside of their main core of Pau and Marc Gasol, Rudy Fernandez and Jose Calderon. It's no surprise that two of the five players on this list have Spanish roots.

The other three players have also turned heads with their Olympic performances, and NBA scouts will likely be in touch soon. 

The Bulls already own the rights to one European project in Nikola Mirotic. Here are five other Olympic standouts that Chicago could reach out to in the future.
