A Look at the Chicago Bulls 2009……….Tryus Thomas

Tryus Thomas was drafted 4th overall in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers. Then, Thomas was then traded along with forward Viktor Khryapa to the Chicago Bulls for forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge whom the Bulls drafted 2nd overall in the same 2006 draft. After three years the Bulls have looked to make a bad trade. LaMarcus Aldridge has averaged 15.4 PPG, 6.8 RPG, in his first three seasons. In comparison Tryus Thomas has averaged 7.7 PPG, and 5.0 PPG. The reason the Bulls traded Aldridge for Thomas was the upside and great athleticism that Tryus Thomas possess. Thomas showed flashes of brilliance in the past three seasons as a Bull, but hasn’t been able to do it consistently. Tryus looked at the end of last season like he was putting his game together and averaged career highs in 10.8 PPG, 6.4 RPG, 1.9 BPG, and 1.1 SPG. Let’s hope Tryus Thomas continues where he left he off and becomes a force to be reckon with.
