The Chicago Bulls selected the 22 year old Sexton High grad Valentine with the No. 14 pick of Thursday night's draft at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The 6 foot 5, 210 pound shooting guard averaged 19.2 points, 7.5 rebounds and 7.8 assists per game as a senior with the Spartans.  Valentine won six national player of the year awards.

Magic Johnson tweeted the following:  Congratulations to Denzel Valentine, the Bulls are getting a good all around player that can do a little bit of everything.

Valentine said, I am glad I'm going to the Bulls.  I'm going to give them my all, and I'm just glad to get this process going.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
