With the 7th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls select Cam Reddish, forward from Duke University.

At seventh overall, the Chicago Bulls would most certainly look to take a point guard. However, with both Ja Morant and Darius Garland off the board, the team should look to swing for the fences with Cam Reddish and look to address the point guard position in free agency.

There have been rumors of late that the Bulls are set on taking Coby White with the seventh pick in the draft or even trading the pick for a current NBA point guard. However, Reddish seems to be the smarter way to move because of his high ceiling and modern-NBA style of play.

Indeed, Otto Porter Jr. is a great piece for the Bulls and Reddish would start his NBA career coming off the bench. However, Reddish is most certainly a project player and will take some time to become an elite NBA talent.

(Reddish’s salary in 2019: $4.4 million)

With the 38th overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft, the Chicago Bulls select Jalen Lecque, guard from Bronx, New York

Because the team did not select a point guard in the first round, the team snags one in the second.  Lecque was another highly-rated high school prospect who decided not to go to college. The point guard’s potential is through the roof and is more than worthy of a shot in the second round.

Many analysts have called Lecque the possible steal of the draft, and if both he and Reddish reach their potential, the Bulls will be the clear winners of this draft. Here you have it, Bulls fans, the team drafted a point guard.

(Lecque’s salary in 2019: $84k)
