NBA Draft liveblogging Part XX - Bulls take another 4

By Rick Morris

As always tonight, we will lead off an update with a link to HOOPS DRAFTOLOGY 2009, our draft guide and the videos we posted of the top players in this draft. We'll also throw in a link to the CBS Draft Tracker.

Another power forward for the Bulls? Well, they'll have plenty of internal competition now that Taj Gibson is in the mix. We said it before the draft and it bears repeating: while this draft is thin in megastars, there are plenty of guys who will go mid-to-late first round and maybe even in the second round who will be useful rotation players. Gibson should be one of them.

DeMarre Carroll then goes #27 to Memphis, thus delivering some more needed size up front. Neither he nor Tha Beet has a ton of offensive skills, but they can be useful rotation parts. Unfortunately for soccer boy, though, you might want a TWINGE of offense with the second pick overall!

Now at #28, Wayne Ellington goes to Minnesota. Not another point guard? Well, I guess he's going to play center!
