3. Chandler Hutchison

Chandler Hutchison’s rookie season was cut short after an unfortunate toe injury in January. There’s a chance he could return for a few games before the 2018-19 season officially ends, but I’d be surprised if the Bulls do anything other than shut him down for the season.

Hutchison showed the Bulls a lot to like in his 44 games this season. He looks like the kind of guy that’ll be a defensive stopper for the remainder of his NBA career. The offensive end of the court is where there are questions.

He does a nice job of getting downhill in transition and finishing with authority, but he’s struggled to shoot the ball from deep.

In his final year at Boise State, Hutchison averaged 20 points per game and shot a respectable 35.9 percent from 3-point territory on 4.1 attempts per game. This year, though, Hutchison is shooting a rough 28 percent from 3-point range on 1.1 attempts per game.

“Hutch” still has the potential to be a solid three-and-D wing, but right now, he’s way more D than three.
