The Chicago Bulls will not be picking at 7th overall for the first time in three seasons. The Chicago Bulls were awarded he fourth overall pick in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft. This will be the first top 5 pick for Chicago since 2008 when the Bulls picked hometown point guard Derrick Rose at 1st overall. The Bulls in the first offseason in the post Gar/Pax era are in a great spot in the upcoming draft. The Chicago Bulls new executive vice president Arturas Karnisovas gets a chance to find an impact player for the Bulls to add to a talented young team. It is very interesting to see Michael Jordan's owned Charlotte Hornets one pick above his former NBA team as Charlotte won the third pick. I find that an interesting story heading into the 2020 NBA Draft.
The Chicago Bulls have needs at the small forward position , and a wing player which this pick can give the team many options in the 2020 NBA Draft. I am excited for this pick as its a lottery where anything can happen and this is a great spot for a team in Chicago looking to head back into contention. This draft features talented young players such as Anthony Edwards, Lamelo Ball, James Wiseman, and foreign talent Deni Avdija. This is a draft class where it is unknown which player will be the first pick making it a very interesting draft in two months. Bulls fans can feel confident in their new head front office executive vice president Arturas Karnisovas and his strong success in the draft as he approaches his first draft leading the newly formed Chicago Bulls front office.
I am excited to see what the Chicago Bulls do in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft on October 16th . The Bulls are bringing in a front office with key pieces at the helm such as executive vice president Arturas Karnisovas, new general manager Marc Eversly, scout J.J. Polk, and Pat Connelly. These individuals bring draft intel from the teams they worked with during a majority of an NBA season. I believe this can really help the Chicago Bulls at a high pick at fourth overall find a talented player to add to their roster to play in Chicago for a long time. We have at least two months until the Chicago Bulls are on the clock at fourth overall in the 2020 NBA Draft barring a trade up. I am excited to see what comes up moving forward up to the NBA Draft on October 16th when the Chicago Bulls are on the clock with the fourth overall pick.
