Lauri Markkanen, whom the Bulls drafted No. 7, took no chances. So, when the rookie wanted No. 24, he sought out… Brian Scalabrine?
Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston:
Yeah, this is old, but it didn’t garner much attention until this week – and is way too good of a story not to pass along.
Personally, I’m just offended on behalf of Tyrus Thomas, who wore No. 24 in Chicago far longer than Scalabrine. Yet, Markkanen didn’t seek Thomas’ permission?
