The long road to Chicago

The only thing surprising about Tyrus Thomas' trip to Chicago is the road he took.

Most figured the Bulls to take Thomas with the No. 2 pick in Wednesday's draft. But when the Bulls passed on Thomas at No. 2, the common thought was the former LSU star would have to get comfortable in another part of the country.

Ah, but the Bulls never let Thomas out of their mind. They made a trade with Portland, which had taken Thomas at No. 4, and got their man.

The question is just who will Thomas be in the NBA: Will he be Stromile Swift, considered by some to be a draft bust, or is he the next Shawn Marion?

Time will tell. Thomas is young and raw which leads you to think he is more apt to be Marion than Swift.
