Lance Stephenson. In the First Round.

Well it looks like Lance Stephenson made the right call heading to the NBA. This mock draft has Stephenson going at 17 to the Chicago Bulls. I am not sure what to make of that. This is the blurb that accompanied his name.

17. Chicago Bulls – Lance Stephenson, SG, Cincinnati: If only the Bulls could wait and see which player they might sign in free agency, then make this pick later. Outside shooting is a need and Stephenson is a tall, strong, athletic wing who could probably use another year of seasoning in college.

Stephenson doesn't make any sense at all for the Bulls, particularly for a team that is going to take strong runs at Joe Johnson and Dwayne Wade, but what the hell. He has the talent, but I don't think he is ready to make an impact for that team.
