When he was helping out the Sixers front office, what were the best draft picks for new Chicago Bulls general manager Marc Eversley?
The early 2010’s were the days where the Philadelphia 76ers were made famous for their tanking strategy, that became known as “the process”. Even one of their biggest stars on the current roster, former Kansas Jayhawks center Joel Embiid, has one of his main nicknames as “The Process”. But one of their former executives, ex-vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley, didn’t see much success for the Sixers in the NBA Draft while he was with the organization. Now Eversley is the recently hired general manager of the Chicago Bulls to replace Gar Forman.
Eversley joined the Bulls organization after the Reinsdorfs pulled off the hire of former Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas to be the lead executive voice in the front office. Karnisovas was brought aboard to replace former vice president of basketball operations John Paxson as the lead executive. And the official title for Karnisovas will be similar to that of Paxson’s previously, as executive vice president of basketball operations.
However, it is important to understand what the new Bulls front office personnel did in their past in terms of roster building to know where they will take this rebuild in the Windy City and what credentials they bring to the table. What we do know is that Karnisovas and Eversley come from much more successful organizations, at least of late, than the Bulls.
Eversley worked his way up to the higher ranks of the Sixers organization as they started to find more success finishing out “the process” in the Eastern Conference in the last two years. Here’s a look back at his three best NBA Draft picks during his run in the Sixers front office.
