In an interview that premiered on the morning of Jan. 26, one-time Chicago Bulls‘ All-Star shooting guard Zach LaVine joined a three-time All-Star and three-time NBA Champion forward for the Golden State Warriors in Draymond Green for a lengthy discussion. LaVine joined Draymond for an interview that premiered earlier in the day on Jan. 26 on “The Draymond Green Show”.

There were some interesting topics that Draymond and LaVine talked about in this interview in the middle of this week. And one that particularly pertains to the Bulls’ front office and their drafting ability came up in this interview.

Draymond and LaVine talked about the impact that the former Illinois Fighting Illini rookie point guard Ayo Dosunmu had on the Bulls so far this season. The Warriors veteran standout forward mentioned how the Bulls got one of the true steals of the draft and a real “hidden gem” in Dosunmu in the second round.

Draymond Green thinks the Chicago Bulls got a steal in the draft with Ayo Dosunmu

Knowing that the Bulls picked up Dosunmu with the 38th overall pick in the second round of the 2021 NBA Draft, it’s easy to see why Draymond has this viewpoint. LaVine also agreed with him without hesitation.

It’s obvious at this point of the season that Dosunmu is looking like one of the biggest steals of the 2021 draft. He and the former Alabama Crimson Tide big man/New Orleans Pelicans rookie Herbert Jones clearly look like the two biggest steals of the second round.

Dosunmu is also on fire of late for the Bulls. During the month of January thus far, Dosunmu is averaging around 11 points per game, four rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block. And he’s shooting around 56 percent from the field, 51 percent from beyond the arc, and 69 percent from the free-throw line.

This is really valuable production for the Bulls to get right now amid this wave of injuries in the backcourt unit. The Bulls are currently down a pair of standout two-way point guards in Alex Caruso and Lonzo Ball for a good while due to various injury issues. That makes the presence of young guards such as Dosunmu and Coby White that much more important.
