4. Andre Drummond - 21.7

According to PER, Andre Drummond is the fourth-best player in the history of the Chicago Bulls. Yes, this metric is flawed. However, in Drummond’s case, it makes a lot of sense.

Drummond is the perfect archetype for a player with a high PER. He doesn’t score much but he rebounds very well and doesn’t turn the ball over. Furthermore, he shoots at a very high clip as he doesn’t take low-percentage shots. 

His efficiency is fantastic despite not being one of the best players ever. Drummond has played just two seasons with the Bulls and has made just 10 starts. That said, he uses his minutes and his shots wisely. 

3. Artis Gilmore - 21.7 

Artis Gilmore is another Hall of Famer on this list as he had a very successful 17-year career. He spent seven of those years with the Bulls, making four All-Star appearances. When it comes to efficiency, it doesn’t get much better than Gilmore. 

He led the league in FG% six times in his career, including once with the Bulls. Gilmore also averaged 19.1 PPG and 11.1 RPG in his tenure with Chicago. On the defensive end, he was a beast, averaging over two blocks per game in every season he played with the Bulls except for one.
