Point of draft: For Bulls, could be finding Rose's backup

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Bulls own the 22nd pick in Thursday's draft. And with a deep pool of guards, adding a backup for Derrick Rose could be the way to go.

Then again, they could use a shooter. And a big man isn't out of the question, either.

It's already been a noteworthy offseason for Chicago.

The Bulls fired coach Tom Thibodeau over a falling out with management even though he led them to the playoffs all five seasons. They hired Fred Hoiberg from Iowa State to replace him, hoping a change will energize a team that fought through injuries in a 50-win season and bowed out to LeBron James and the banged up Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
