Bulls May Pass on Drafting Big Man

It's anybody's guess who Bulls general manager John Paxson will draft with the ninth pick.

The Bulls' primary need -- a big man who can score -- is no secret. However, while they would like to get someone who can help immediately, that is not a priority.

Paxson today said if there's not a player on the board who will give the team 25 minutes a game next season, then the Bulls will go with who they like.

Three big men who could be available with the ninth pick are Washington's Spencer Hawes, Yi Jianlian of China and Florida's Joakim Noah.

Noah is considered the most likely of the three to contribute immediately. He helped Florida win back-to-back championships.
