Thinking back to the past five drafts for the Chicago Bulls, which players selected in the second round were the biggest whiffs?

Dating back five years for the NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls definitely didn’t make the most of its opportunities in the second round. The second round of the draft is where a lot of teams make their money, but the Chicago Bulls front office didn’t fall into that boat of late.

Re-drafting for previous years can be a fun way to look back with hindsight to what should’ve happened. For a team in the situation of the Chicago Bulls at this moment, looking back on previous draft turnouts isn’t as exciting.

The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery is less than a week away, and we’re going to start this countdown off by looking back at what the Bulls could do better. Learning from past mistakes will be an important factor to making the right selections in this draft. This is a very pivotal draft for the Bulls since it could include the best lottery pick since the 2008 NBA Draft.

Not only do the Bulls need to get the lottery selection right for the 2019 NBA Draft, the second round will be important to add depth to the rotation too. In the past five years, the Bulls mostly didn’t draft well in the second round, despite a good amount of first round success.

In general, Gar Forman and John Paxson need to get free agency and the draft right this summer. It is important entering year three of this rebuilding process.

Here’s a look into the five biggest second round NBA Draft misses for the Chicago Bulls front office since 2014, as we’re drawing closer to the 2019 draft lottery.
