    Could the Kansas Jayhawks senior point guard, Tyshawn Taylor, be the Bulls pick at 29 in Thursday night's NBA Draft?

    When it's the Bulls turn to use the 29th pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft, local reports say they plan on taking Kansas' Tyshawn Taylor.

    Of course the Bulls need backup point guard help among other things, but with CJ Watson and John Lucas III potentially not returning next season, Taylor – who played four years at Kansas – could pay immediate dividends in the backcourt.

    The last time the Bulls drafted a player out of Kansas, it worked out pretty well. 

    Then again, this could all be a smoke screen on the part of the Bulls who also have been reported to be interested in shoring up their shooting guard position and going after a veteran point guard in free agency.

    The team could also still package the pick along with Luol Deng and trade up as has been reported as well.

    All told, no one really knows what the front office is thinking or what they're going to do, but all of these questions should be answered on Thursday night.
