#16 Picks In the NBA Draft

The last time the Bulls had the #16 pick in the draft they selected Rodney Carney. He was promptly dealt to obtain Thabo Sefolosha. Sefolosha was dealt mid-season for the #26 pick in this year’s draft. Before that the Bulls last selection at #16 was Ron Artest in 1999. Here are other #16 picks.

Year Team Player College
2008 76ers Marreese Speights University of Florida
2007 Wizards Nick Young USC
2006 Bulls Rodney Carney University of Memphis
2005 Raptors Joey Graham Oklahoma State
2004 Jazz Kirk Snyder University of Nevada
2003 Celtics Troy Bell Boston College
2002 76ers Jiri Welsch
2001 Hornets Kirk Haston University of Indiana
2000 Kings Hedo Turkoglu
1999 Bulls Ron Artest St. John’s

Not too many hits there. Speights played well off the bench for the Sixers last year. Artest and Turkoglu (known as Turkish Pippen by this and other bloggers) have had good careers. Other than those players none are standouts.
