Bulls take Florida's Murphy in second round
DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP)
The Chicago Bulls have selected power forward Erik Murphy of Florida with the 49th overall pick of the NBA draft, adding another shooter in the second round.
Even though he's 6-foot-10, Murphy is known as much for his ability to connect from the outside as his inside play.
He averaged 12.2 points and led the SEC in 3-point shooting at 45.3 percent as a senior last season, earning first-team, all-conference honors.
The Bulls took him after grabbing a shooter with the 20th pick in New Mexico's Tony Snell.
