6. Brad Sellers
The Bulls drafted Sellers with the ninth overall pick in 1986. Jordan was limited to 18 games in his second NBA season by a broken foot. He returned for the stretch run, but Chicago was bounced in the first round of the playoffs by the Celtics.
They hoped Sellers would be a difference-maker, but that was not the case. The seven-foot forward had a promising rookie season where he averaged 8.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks in 21.9 minutes per game, but his production dipped in the playoffs as Chicago was swept by Boston for the second straight year.
Sellers got more minutes in year two and averaged a career-high 9.5 points per game, but he started to see the writing on the wall after the additions of Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant. The seven-footer requested a trade after his playing time dipped in year three, and Michael Jordan hilariously helped make it a reality.
Brad Sellers played just three seasons in the NBA after leaving the Chicago Bulls where he never got more than 12 minutes per game. He was Chicago’s primary starter during the 1987-1988 season, but the ninth-overall pick was a bit of a disappointment. Sellers had a long career playing overseas, and he eventually became mayor of his hometown of Warrenville Heights in Ohio.
