Virtual workouts are going to become part of the new normal for the Chicago Bulls as they start to prepare their boards for the 2020 NBA Draft.
Entering the 2020 offseason, one of the more interesting developing storylines for the Chicago Bulls will be what happens leading up to the draft lottery. Set for a date pushed back into August, the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery will have a lot of Bulls fans sitting on their edge of their seats to figure out where their team will possibly land in the top five or top 10.
The Bulls have around the same draft lottery odds this year that they did when they landed the seventh overall pick in each of the last three first rounds. If the Bulls get the seventh overall pick for the fourth year in a row in the NBA Draft, that might officially drive the fans in the Windy City insane.
In the last three NBA Drafts in order from the most recent, the Bulls snagged former North Carolina Tar Heels point guard Coby White, Duke Blue Devils center Wendell Carter Jr., and Arizona Wildcats power forward Lauri Markkanen, with the seventh overall pick. And the Bulls did find some great value in the second round of last year’s draft with former Arkansas Razorbacks big man Daniel Gafford.
In this year’s version of the draft, the Bulls are going to have to get creative during the scouting process under the direction of former Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas. He’ll need to get the new look Bulls front office regime to find a better direction to steer this rebuild entering its fourth year.
Here’s a deeper look into the four 2020 NBA Draft sleepers that the recently hired Bulls lead exec Karnisovas and his new look front office squad should scout further early for this offseason.
