2020 NBA Draft Thread: Bulls pick #7 (probably)

It's that time!

Seems like a really weak class to me at first blush. Anthony Edwards should have a high ceiling though.

We will miss out on the guys with true star upside, staying at 7 and saying how fortunate we are that player x fell to that spot.

Can't wait.

Projected #7 pick on NBADraft.net right now is Nico Mannion.

Which is hilariously on-brand for the Bulls.

Another draft thread where we analyze the top 3 picks for 100 pages and in the end drop to the 7th spot and pick someone no one wanted

If we got lucky and land a top 3 pick, it would be:

1) James Wiseman
2) Anthony Edwards
3) LaMelo Ball

*4) Cole Anthony

But we will get number 7 again. The four peat.

Getting another lotto pick could enable that. This team has a goal tho and I’m happy to see them strive for it.

If the Bulls do, you would be complaining to much to ever hear it.


NBA fan logic we need to trade one of two best players because (Player X) one needs to shine more.

This is a PG heavy lottery this year, and with Sato contributing so little so far (I am expecting him to pick it up, maybe it's a role/usage thing as well, but it's still appears clear that he's not a high level starter), I think it would make the most sense for us to go PG.

I would say that our other need is the wing, given Otto's health issues and upcoming contract uncertainty, plus the complete lack of depth there at the moment, though the choices for wings seems more scarce at this stage.

Obviously you take BPA, but just some things to keep in mind.

Draft twitter has Cole Anthony as #1. He's an absolute stud, and likely the best PG in the draft.

Anthony Edwards is my personal #1 - he's a wing but just has super upside tools. He's a guy that, if he has a good college season, might be someone you would consider as a 'can't miss' if you have the opportunity to draft him, needs thrown out the window.

Wiseman has been highly touted by the big outlets as the #1 big, but all of draft twitter is super low on him. With our bigs position as it is as well, he's not exactly high on my radar at his point.

LaMelo is an interesting one. I've watched all his games so far this season. He is an absolutely gifted passer, just beautiful to watch, and he's been doing it with minimal turnovers so far as well. Great PG size, an incredibly tight handle, speed, excellent rebounder - he's going really elevate his teams transition play in particular. However, he's shooting around 18% from 3 so far, and his defense kinda sucks at the moment (though he's got a good knack for steals). Those are 2 major flaws right now. But what skills he does have right now, you can't teach. High upside.

Beyond those guys, you have Avdija, really like his game, probably going to be more of a role player forward, but great feel/passing, Stewart is another good big and Makur Maker has applied to be in this draft as well which would add another strong big man.

RJ Hampton, Theo Maledon, Tyrese Maxey, Nicco Mannion, Killian Hayes, Tre Mann some of the other PG lottery names.

Wings - Scottie Lewis, Jaden McDaniels, Isaac Okoro, Jaden McDaniels some notable ones.

Seriously want Lamelo Ball only since the Bulls need a playmaker.
Maybe trade White/Lavine for Lonzo and the Ball duo combo would be frightening for the league.
They are brothers so the synergy would be unrivaled even compared to RW-Harden.

Return to Chicago Bulls
