Bulls Draft Marquette's Butler
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls have selected Marquette guard-forward Jimmy Butler with the 30th pick in the draft on Thursday.

An honorable-mention All-Big East pick, Butler was second on the team in scoring (15.7 points per game) and rebounding (6.1 rpg.) while averaging a team-high 1.4 steals.

The Bulls took Cleveland State guard Norris Cole at No. 28.

Besides the two first-round picks, the Bulls also own a second-rounder at No. 43.
