The draft is over, but if you are a diehard Chicago Bulls fan and a basketball junkie, you may still be stung by the Bulls playoff departure. The draft was largely uneventful as it pertains to the 2011-2012 season.
The selection of Jimmy Butler from Marquette and the trade maneuvers that landed Nikola Mirotic shouldn't impact the Bulls playoff run much for next season, right? Well, maybe it will.
Often times, front office moves are made in efforts to properly position the organization to capitalize on projected future opportunities.
Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. The moves and the selection of Butler could be a precursor to a new nucleus for the Chicago Bulls.
Am I suggesting the Bulls are going to build around Butler and Mirotic? Not exactly, but here is a scenario and the potential roster shaping that could be in store for Bulls fans.
This culminates in what could be the roster for the 2013-2014 season when Mirotic could make his Bulls debut.
