F - NOR - OUT
The rookie second round pick out of Ohio State suffered a torn ACL playing against the Hawks in Summer League.
It’s an unfortunate injury for Liddell, who slid into the second round after many graded him a first round prospect. Liddell had an uphill battle to make the team in New Orleans with the Pelicans already maxing out their guaranteed contract roster spots. Now with his injury, the path to an NBA roster has just become that much harder for him.
According to Daniel Greenberg, the Bulls are hosting Ohio State F E.J. Liddell for a pre-draft workout.
After being bounced in the first round of the playoffs to the Bucks, the Bulls were reminded of one thing, they have no size. With that said, they have continued to workout big men in a draft filled with potential sleeper candidates at the position such as Liddell. During his days at Ohio State, the young forwards averaged 19.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game. He makes for an excellent fit alongside Nikola Vucevic if the Bulls are to select him in the 2022 NBA Draft.
