Realistic draft night target for the Chicago Bulls

This leaves White. White could put pressure on Kris Dunn to perform in his contract year but would likely play second fiddle and wait to see what happens during the 2020-21 off-season. The 6-foot-5 two-way guard is an intriguing prospect out of North Carolina and he passed Michael Jordan on the Tar Heels freshmen scoring list as a one-and-done.

The Chicago Bulls got Lauri Markkanen (the seventh overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft) after trading Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves on draft night. That trade worked out heavily in Chicago’s favor. Then, the Bulls selected Wendell Carter Jr. with the seventh overall pick in 2018. It’s safe to say Chicago has had some luck with pick No. 7. Both Markkanen and Carter are shaping up to be important pieces of the Bulls’ core.

The Bulls are the youngest team in the NBA and will likely attempt to add some veteran talent to a developing team. If the Bulls do pass on a guard or trade Dunn on draft night, here are five point guards entering free agency who the Bulls will take a look at to compete for a starting spot.
