With mock drafts already being created, there is still a lot of time before the actual draft on June 23. Trades usually take place and these picks can still shuffle around. The Bulls only had a 0.5 percent chance to get the first overall pick, and as expected, they...

Russell Westbrook, one of the most athletic point guards in the NBA, has a 36.5-inch vertical leap. That's pretty high for a 6-foot-3 guard. Though Derrick Rose has lost some athleticism because of multiple knee injuries, the 6-foot-3 Chicago Bulls guard registered a 37-inch vertical leap when he came into the league.
