A variety of different routes that the Chicago Bulls front office can find in the 2020 NBA Draft gives a lot of hope for where this rebuild will go.

There’s a plethora of ways that the Chicago Bulls could go with their two picks that they hold now in the 2020 NBA Draft. Executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas has the fourth overall pick in the 2020 draft lottery and the original Memphis Grizzlies 44th overall pick in the second round. He and general manager Marc Eversley have a big opportunity to give another boost for the Bulls heading into the fourth year of the rebuild.

Two of the biggest needs that a lot of people are talking about that the Bulls have to fill in the 2020 draft (specifically via the lottery) are adding a playmaker that can likely play at point guard, and then adding wing depth. The primary need for the Bulls that came to the forefront over the last 10-12 months is adding depth on the wing.

The lack of consistent health from both veteran small forward Otto Porter Jr. and former Boise State Broncos small forward Chandler Hutchison made it difficult to find any reliability and production at that spot in the rotation. There’s a really good chance that they fill that need with their lottery pick.

But where else do the Bulls still need some help to round out the rotation that they can bolster through this draft? One area where the Bulls struggled last season much of the way surprisingly was with their floor spacing among the big men. Between the likes of power forward Lauri Markkanen and center Luke Kornet, it looked like the Bulls would have improved floor spacing among the frontcourt rotation last season. But struggles from both of them didn’t help at all in this regard.

If the Bulls do want to add more floor spacing among their bigs, what are some under-the-radar names they could look at in various spots in the 2020 draft?
