Similar to some of the other highly touted draft prospects on this list, the projections for the former Florida State Seminoles standout sophomore shooting guard/wing Devin Vassell are all over the place. Vassell is considered by some to be projected out as a first round pick in the late teens, and there might be some that have him landing near the top five in the lottery.

There is an obvious appeal to a scenario where the Bulls pick Vassell in the first round of the 2020 draft. And it is very viable that they trade down just a few spots, and get a few other picks along the way, to draft Vassell somewhere later in the lottery. Say the Bulls wind up with the sixth overall pick, or seventh again, then they could very realistically trade down to 10 or 12 with Vassell still on the board.

Planning out a possible draft night trade to land Vassell really comes down to where the Bulls land in the lottery. The 6-foot-6 and 180 pound former five-star recruit and Suwnaee, GA, native fills a positional need for this team and he could very well be one of the best players left on the board depending on where they land in the lottery.

Next. 4 draft sleepers for the Bulls to scout early on. dark

During his sophomore campaign at Florida State, Vassell played in 30 games (starting in all of them). That was a nice jump in roles for Vassell compared to the goose egg number of starts he had in Tallahassee as a true freshman. He averaged 12.7 points per game, 5.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.0 blocks. That allotted with a box plus/minus rating of 10.9 and 58.5 true shooting percentage to round out a very solid sophomore season with the ACC regular season title winners.
