It’s finally here! The NBA Draft is finally upon us. After all the madness regarding trades and foresights to free agency, tonight is the time where NBA teams select players who can help them for the future.
It will be held in the Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets, and will be televised on ESPN at 6 PM Central time.
The Bulls are just outside the lottery this time around but they may have additional picks by the end of the night. With the Jimmy Butler trade rumors swirling at the moment, Chicago could find itself with a Top 10 draft pick quickly. Butler has been linked to the likes of Boston Celtics and Minnesota Timberwolves as of late. The Boston Celtics stay lurking in the shadows but seem to be more interested in trading for Kristaps Porzingis at the moment.
It’s going to be a stressful first eight picks for Bulls fans. If you thought last year was crazy, this is about to be way more stressful. Buckle up everyone and embrace the madness. We will also be giving you pick by pick updates.
Here is a list of the draft profiles done by the Blog A Bull staff during draft season:
- T.J. Leaf could be a replacement for Nikola Mirotic if he walks in free agency
- Zach Collins could be a great stretch four for the Chicago Bulls
- Terrance Ferguson has a lot of upside and how could he play alongside Jimmy Butler?
- Donovan Mitchell is the perfect two-way player for the Bulls
- Here’s also a list of all the guys Chicago has worked as well
