Well, so much for B.J.'s tweet that the Bulls would take him at 16.

In a not so surprising draft, Mullens fell to #24 before being traded to Oklahoma City (#25). The move to OKC could prove to be a good thing as Mullens can develop in relative obscurity and with less pressure. The lack of pressure will only be helped by the fact OKC also had the 3rd pick in the draft taking James Harden out of Arizona State.

The proverbial "we told you so" could certainly apply in this case but what's done is done so good luck to Mullens. Something tells me he'll fit in nicely in the bustling metropolis of Oklahoma City.
