2. Grayson Allen

Grayson Allen – the guy that people love to hate. I don’t love to hate him, though. I just love him. Bulls Nation would undoubtedly feel the same way.

Like Ojeleye, Allen’s a high-character kid. He just got a bad rap from some heated moments in college that resulted in some less-than-cool plays. By all accounts, it seems like he’s learned his lesson and is a phenomenal person.

All that aside, though, Allen is an incredible basketball player. Most basketball fans know him for his time at Duke. He’s an astonishing athlete who has in-the-gym range and underrated playmaking abilities.

During his sophomore year at Duke, Allen averaged 21.6 points per game on 46.6 percent shooting from the field and 41.7 percent shooting from beyond the arc. His numbers dropped off a little bit during his junior and senior seasons, but that was by no means an indication of how talented he is. Don’t let the regression fool you, Allen was unbelievable in college.

Grayson has struggled a little during his time with the Utah Jazz. He’s shooting a rough 31.4 percent from the field and 27.3 percent from 3-point range. The transition from college to the NBA isn’t easy for everyone, though.

I still believe in Grayson Allen. He’s the type of wing the Bulls need to try and acquire.
