1) Chicago Bulls targets who can help them win immediately

There’s no doubt in my mind that the first overall pick in the 2020 draft will come down to either one of the trio of Wiseman, NBL Illawarra Hawks point guard LaMelo Ball, or former Georgia Bulldogs freshman star shooting guard Anthony Edwards. If it is Edwards that goes first, he would likely fall to the Minnesota Timberwolves (unless they trade out of the top spot).

During the shortened 2019-20 regular season with Georgia, Edwards played in 32 games (all of which he started in). And he averaged 19.1 points per game, 5.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals, and 0.6 blocks. Edwards shot 40.2 percent from the field, 29.4 percent from beyond the arc, and 77.2 percent from the free-throw line.

Edwards does need to be more efficient as a primary ball handler, especially with his shot selection. He is very physically gifted and possesses more than enough quickness and strength to contend with just about any guard on both ends of the floor. The 6-foot-5 and 225 pound Edwards does have a lot of areas to improve, though.

Although the Bulls would have to be patient with Edwards over the long haul, he would provide their rotation a lot that they don’t have now. Outside of point guard Coby White and LaVine, the Bulls don’t really have anyone that can generate offense themselves. That’s exactly what Edwards could bring to the table for the Bulls out of the gates.
