While teams around the league have been showcasing their pre-draft workouts to the media, the Bulls have been quietly active in the same process. In our first addition of Bulls pre-draft workout prospects, we profiled Scott Macahado, Andrew Nicholson and Tu Holloway. Machado and Nicholson were in attendance for a very long workout at the Berto Center on Friday. The Bulls will hold an additional workout today with Tu Holloway and a new slew of NBA hopefuls:
Fab Melo | 7’0” Center – Syracuse – Sophomore
Mock Draft: Pick 24
Fab Melo’s highest quality is his size which reflects in his defensive. His 7 ft. stature and 7’3” wingspan make him an automatic threat in the paint for the opposing team and he showcased that averaging 2.9 blocks a game this past year. He averaged 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds in 25 minutes a game – at 7 ft, 5.8 rebounds is a bit alarming. His weaknesses make him a mirror image of Omer Asik – he bobbles many passes and tends to bring the ball low after grabbin...

New Derrick Rose 3.0 Playoff...
The Chicago Bulls' season went up in smoke when Derrick Rose collapsed to the ground at the end of Game One, the very first playoff of the entire season, with a torn ACL. Chicago was game, but hardly the top seed in the East without its spark plug in Rose. No one could carry the offensive load and the 76ers advanced.
ACLs are not the devastating injuries they used to be, but...
ALL POINTS BULLETIN
With their MVP point guard Derrick Rose currently recovering from a torn ACL, the Chicago Bulls may go after a big name veteran point guard to run the show in the interim.
Season Averages: 10.2 PPG, 9.8 RPG, 2.5 APG, 1.4 BLKPG
Season Highlight: On February 22, Joakim Noah became the third big man in Chicago Bulls history to record a triple-double. He had 13 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in a win against the Milwaukee Bucks. With the Bucks sticking by the “double Rose” game plan, Joakim Noah became the go to guy and was...
June 4: Ronnie Brewer, the least safe player on the Bulls roster for next year, was spotted sporting the team’s threads while working out at his alma mater, the Arkansas University Razorback’s facility.
As unlikely as it will be for the Phoenix Suns to re-sign Steve Nash, the rumors are flying speculating where the veteran point guard will land. It comes as no surprise — with Derrick Rose still in rehabilitation from his ACL surgery last month and needing anywhere from 8 months to one full year [...]

The Bulls reportedly are looking to upgrade at point guard due to the expected absence of Derrick Rose.
In an article written by Comcast Sports Nets Bulls Insider Aggrey Sam yesterday, it was reported that the Bulls are going to make a run at Jason Kidd and Steve Nash this off-season to fill in for the injured Derrick Rose.
The hope is that one of these two savvy veterans bite on the sales pitch that they would have a great chance to win a championship in Chicago, as the Bulls likely...
Had Derrick Rose not gone down with a devastating knee injury in the first round of the playoffs, things would likely look a lot different in the Eastern Conference right now. The Celtics are the obvious beneficiaries, having drawn home court advantage against the Sixers in the second round rather than having to face the top-seeded Bulls. With Rose’s recovery expected to extend...
