The first of three straight second round picks for the Bulls in the 2000 NBA Draft still wouldn’t produce much during his career. Former Indiana Hoosiers 6-foot-1 and 180 pound point guard A.J. Guyton would be the 32nd overall pick in the second round of this draft to the Bulls. He would also be selected at the very beginning of this weird reign for Gar Forman and the Bulls to pick players out of Big Ten country.
Guyton played most of his 80 regular season games during his NBA career with the Bulls. Of those 80 games played, 78 came in a Bulls uniform. The only other two were with the Golden State Warriors. Guyton averaged 5.5 points per game, 1.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 0.3 steals, while shooting 37.7 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from beyond the arc.
Moving up to the first round of the 2000 NBA Draft for the Bulls, the next pick is one that went 24th overall. And that was the towering 7-foot-1 and 255 pound Munich, Germany, native center Dalibor Bagaric. What looked to be a pretty promising project prospect at the center position wouldn’t wind up doing much good for the Bulls.
Bagaric would play in just 95 regular season game during his very brief NBA career. He would play in all 95 games with the Bulls, starting in zero of them. He averaged 2.6 points per game, 2.5 rebounds, 0.4 assists, and 0.5 blocks, while shooting 36.1 percent from the field.
We have to be fair to the Bulls first round picks that the 2000 NBA Draft was just downright awful. Michael Redd was likely the top player out of this draft class, which is not good. But Bagaric was the worst of the bunch, sporting even a number of win shares per 48 minutes below zero.
