NBA Draft Profile: Bulls F Bobby Portis


As part of our coverage leading up to the 2015 NBA Draft we will provide profiles of more than 60 prospects, including video interviews with each player, what they're saying leading up to draft day as well as their potential fit on the Bulls.

Bobby Portis, F, Arkansas

6'11" | 246 lbs. | 20 years old

2014-15 stats:

17.5 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.1 steals, 1.4 blocks 53.6 FG%, 29.9 minutes


First round, 22nd overall by the Chicago Bulls


"They'll realize I'm one of the hardest working players in the whole NBA, simply because once I get there I won't stop working. I'm going to be myself from Day 1, I'm going to keep doing the things that got me there. Simply because I was once a kid that no one knew, but now people know me. So, I got to this position because...I worked hard, and once I get (to the NBA) I'm going to keep working hard because I want to have a career in the NBA. I don't just want to be there."


The Bulls couldn't have thought Portis would be available at No. 22, so they have to be happy. It could spell the end of the line for Taj Gibson, however, as Portis has a very similar skill set.
