Could Bulls take Tyler Ulis at No. 14?

By LARRY VAUGHT

Could Tyler Ulis be playing for the Chicago Bulls next season?

Maybe because today the Bulls traded point guard Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks along with Justin Holiday and a second-round draft pick next year for center Robin Lopez, wing Jerian Grant and point guard Jose Calderon.

The Bulls have the 14th pick in Thursday’s draft and Ulis could be the pick. Or it could be Notre Dame’s Demetrius Jackso, or Vanderbilt’s Wade Baldwin IV.

This would be a dream come true for Ulis, who went to high school in Chicago. It would also mean he would be a lottery pick, something few other than him thought possible when he came to UK.

    Whoever drafts him will get the toughest kid with the biggest ticker that I have seen play in many years. He’s a winner.

    Couple years ago we were visiting friends in the southern suburbs of Chicago. Our host was a graduate of Marian Catholic High School as is Tyler Ulis TU was a junior that year as I recall, I was asked if I’d like to attend a HS basketball game that evening MCHS against “who cares”.
    Ulis was starting PG, First impression was “who is this runt? The cheerleaders are taller than he is.” It soon became apparent who the little guy was. He was the team leader. He could score, almost at will. Last but not least the team looked to him for leadership. Whoever drafts TU will be getting all of that plus, having come out of the Calipari System, a guy who will look towards his team mates first..

    He scored 23 that night and most of those in the stands never realized that fact.
