Round 2, Pick 38 (Via Memphis)

2. player. Small Forward. Dylan Windler. Belmont. 24. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

With their only second-round pick of the draft, the Chicago Bulls absolutely need to go with the best player available.

This player is none other than one of the top scoring players in the country, Belmont Bruins’ forward Dylan Windler.

Windler spent all four seasons at Belmont, averaging 21 points and ten rebounds in his final season at Belmont.

Windler led the Bruins to the NCAA Tournament, winning a first four-game before falling in the Round of 64.

Windler also shot up NBA Draft big boards due to his performance last season, as the mid-major superstar was largely unknown prior to his breakout senior season.

Now, experts have Windler going anywhere from the end of the first round to the early second round. Windler could very well fall into the Bulls’ hands at pick number 38, which would make him a no-brainer.

Windler has very high upside as a scorer in the NBA, as in college he flaunted the ability to score from both beyond the arc as well as inside. Windler is a versatile defender who has the ability to take on premier scorers on the opposing team while staying productive on the glass. Windler looks the part as an efficient option off the bench, bringing a scoring burst as well as some consistency on defense.

While the chances of Windler falling to the second round look worse as the weeks go on, the Bulls can only hope for some luck this time around after not getting much help in the lottery. A second-round pick is a completely different story, but Windler has the upside to become a productive and above-average player in the NBA for several years to come.

The Bulls always could, and actually probably should decide to trade up to the earlier portion of the second round if they want a player that would be able to make an early impact next season, but if they stay at number 38, there is still a chance that they get a solid role player.
