If the Chicago Bulls do decide to trade down from the fourth pick in the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery, which sleeper prospects might be worth targeting?
This is going to be an unusual offseason for the Chicago Bulls, but hopefully that is a good thing. They landed the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery, bring back a good among of young talent on the roster, and have a bunch of positive changes made to the coaching staff and front office so far.
Back in spring, the Bulls made the move to demote former vice president of basketball operations John Paxson to more of a senior advisor role. And he was replaced by former Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas. Then, Karnisovas hired former Philadelphia 76ers senior VP of player personnel Marc Eversley to replace Gar Forman as the Bulls next general manager.
The next chain reaction of changes within the Bulls organization transpired when they parted ways with now former head coach Jim Boylen, back on Aug. 14. Karnisovas and Eversley are still firmly in the midst of what will likely be one of the more patient head coaching searches around the NBA this offseason.
But a real looming question for the new look front office is what they will do with the fourth overall pick in the 2020 draft. Do they trade down or keep at fourth overall in the lottery? If they do trade down, it must be to get a quality prospect that falls far down draft boards to find a good amount of value.
Here’s a look into three draft sleepers that could be worth the Bulls trading down for in the first round this year.
