The Chicago Bulls are not supposed to be on the clock until pick No. 16. Luckily for them, the 2014 NBA Draft is one of the more talented ones we have seen in quite some time. With that in mind, let’s take a look at five players who the Bulls should target at pick No. 16.

5. Rodney Hood

Rodney Hood has great size at 6-foot-8 and he is also a very good shooter. Who knows if he could start right away, but he certainly has the potential to do so.

4. James Young

I doubt James Young will be available at pick No. 16, which is why he is ranked No. 4 on Chicago’s target list. Young was the best player on the Wildcats at times. Other times, well, he disappeared in games. Still, he has the shooting ability and the size to have a solid career.

3. Tyler Ennis

Who knows what will happen with Derrick Rose. If the superstar comes back and plays like the MVP he once was -- without getting injured -- Ennis will be nothing more than a backup. However, if Rose suffers more injures or is a shell of his former self, Ennis could be the starter of the future. This is assuming he is still available.

I doubt the Bulls go after Cleanthony Early, but you never know. He has the talent to be a superstar in the NBA. That just goes to show how deep and talented the 2014 NBA Draft is. Shooting, rebounding, scoring and much more is what Early can provide at the next level.

1. P.J. Hairston

If P.J. Hairston is on the clock, the Bulls have to go for him. He was a beast for North Carolina. Despite his troubles with the team, he put up some solid numbers in the D-League. His size is intriguing (6-foot-5) and he could be the best shooter in the entire draft.
