MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"Ryan Humphrey was a first rounder and he was one of the best players we had in Chicago. He had a concussion and took stitches over his eye. But he didn't miss any playing time -- he was right back out there on the floor. He is a terrific rebounder, he's a quick jumper and a terrific competitor. They need some guys who can rebound. He is a great basketball player."
