Denver Stiffs Community Mock Draft 22nd Pick: What you Shawquin about?, Bulls

With the 22nd Pick in the 2015 NBA Draft the Chicago Bulls select RJ Hunter, Guard, Georgia State.

What you Shawquin about?:

Some would argue that this might be a reach, but I like RJ Hunter to the Bulls. His game is very similar to a Marco Bellineli/JJ Redick type of player. Even with the acquisition of Doug McDermott last off season, the Bulls still go through stretches where they struggle to score, and their floor spacing is one of the reasons why. Although players like Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose CAN hit threes on occasion, they are not three point specialists or true floor spacers.

Enter RJ Hunter, who is one of the best shooters coming out of college. Hunter will give the Bulls the ability to space the floor, and give them a much needed backup back court three point shooter.Hunter thrives playing with Kevin Ware and Harrow, because opposing teams focus their defense on them instead of Hunter. Similarly, Hunter would work in a system like the Bulls have, where he does not need to be a primary scorer and he can play off of others. Because of this, he would be a great offensive fit next to guys like Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol, and Jimmy Butler.Overall, Hunter still has ways to go before he is ready to be a NBA starter. But Hunter has time to develop, playing behind Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich.

He still needs to add some weight and he struggles against elite defenders, which he will be seeing a lot of in the NBA. But, if he can continue his great shooting on the NBA level, he will find a spot in the Bulls' rotation and can be a offensive spark off of the bench. And, in a few years, Hunter has the ability to develop into a great secondary scorer for the Bulls, giving them a player that they have not had since Bellineli.

*In the ultimate Mancar fantasy, this pick made the Bulls forget about Jimmy Butler, he then signed a max deal with the Denver Nuggets :)*
