Hawks receive: Bulls No. 7 overall pick, Future first-round lottery protected pick, Denzel Valentine

Bulls receive: Hawks No. 10 and No. 17 overall pick

The Bulls would likely be entering the season with Kris Dunn at point guard unless they cash in this summer with a veteran free agent. Chicago has a meeting planned with former Clippers guard and two-time NBA All-Defense player Patrick Beverley planned in the next two weeks.

If the Bulls could sign Beverley and another bench player along with two rookies they’d be under the salary cap and have an improved and more formable roster than last season. This would be a nice way to add two potential lottery talents to the roster and be able to play them off the bench.

The Bulls had two first round picks last year and selected Wendell Carter Jr. (7th) and Chandler Hutchinson (22nd). The talent in this year’s draft is deeper than last year’s and two first-round picks would certainly benefit the Bulls as well as benefit the Hawks giving Atlanta two top-10 players alongside Trae Young and John Collins.
