NBA Draft Rumors: Bulls could go after Deni Avdija if he’s available at No. 4

NBA Draft Rumors: Bulls could go after Deni Avdija if he’s available at No. 4

Photo by Marko Metlas/Euroleague Basketball via rumor season continues unabated Even with over three weeks left until the 2020 NBA draft, could the Chicago Bulls already have their minds set on who they will take with their No. 4 pick? Per Bleacher Report draft writer Jonathan Wasserman. The Bulls figure stay put at No. 4 if they believe Deni Avdija will be there. This makes sense. Like most NBA teams, the Bulls need another wing player. Otto Porter Jr. is a solid pro, but unfortunately has been injury prone in his time with the Bulls (he only played 14 games last season) and is...

In a ranking of the NBA’s top 125 players, the Bulls roster barely shows up

Photo by Jasear Thompson/NBAE via the young core more fits into ‘tears’ The dregs of the NBA offseason is a prime time for player rankings. The Athletic’s Seth Partnow put a bit of a different spin on it, instead putting the top 125 NBA players into five tiers. Partnow makes it very clear that this massive endeavor is not meant to be an absolute ranking of players. Instead, he looks at a number of different factors to put these players into these tiers that are “intended to reflect value towards winning a title next season.” Furthermore, Partnow uses some advanced metrics to...

Is it worth it for the Chicago Bulls to trade up in the 2020 NBA Draft?

Is it worth it for the Chicago Bulls to trade up in the 2020 NBA Draft?

Photo by Chris Ramirez/NBAE via Recapping the recent comments about moving up from #4 The Chicago Bulls are sitting in an interesting spot within the NBA Draft order with the fourth overall pick. If a top-3 touted prospect such as LaMelo Ball or Anthony Edwards fall, Chicago will be right there with a chance to take them. The next group of guys like Killian Hayes, Deni Avdija, Devin Vassell, and Isaac Okoro will have a few options still on the board if the Bulls stay put. As of late though, there has been a lot of talk about moving up. Tom Haberstroh of NBC Sports recently told K.C....

Remember Chandler Hutchison?

Remember Chandler Hutchison?

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports A closer look at the potential role of Chandler Hutchison could play as he heads into his third year with Chicago There’s been major organizational change from the Chicago Bulls during this extended offseason, so it’s not entirely surprising that there is a lack of interest surrounding Chandler Hutchison, who is now entering his third season in the NBA. The upcoming season will be an important one for him as he has a team option on his contract next summer. Hutchison has a lot to prove when it comes to how valuable of a player he can be for Chicago...

Perhaps with that in mind, the Bulls under newly-hired head coach Billy Donovan have reportedly made it known that they’re getting a new coaching staff: Billy Donovan called multiple assistant coaches Monday morning and informed them they won’t serve on his first staff as Bulls coach, sources told NBC Sports Chicago. Gone — at least — are Roy Rogers, Dean Cooper and Nate Loenser, sources confirmed. The...

Bulls finished their 3-week minicamp, was it eventful at all?

Photo by Chris Ramirez/NBAE via we’ll see what happens next This 2019-20 NBA season is finally about to come to an end in the Disney bubble, and the Bulls just wrapped up their three-week minicamp in their own mini-bubble in Chicago. As one of the “Delete Eight” teams not invited down to Florida for the NBA restart, the Bulls had the opportunity to get together for workouts so they could have some league-sanctioned activity after so much time away since their season ended in March. The Bulls had to take plenty of their own COVID-19 precautions in their mini-bubble, which the...

new Bulls GM Marc Eversley: ‘This is not a rebuild’

new Bulls GM Marc Eversley: ‘This is not a rebuild’

Photo by Chris Ramirez/NBAE via Eversley had his first public comments since being hired as Karnisovas’s number 2 The Bulls have won just 31.0% of their games since the Jimmy Butler trade, the second-worst mark in the NBA ahead of only the dumpster-fire Knicks. While the Bulls have some intriguing young pieces on the roster, none of them can be considered surefire long-term cornerstones at this point (this can be argued). Because of this and the horrible record, I’d still consider the Bulls to be a rebuilding team. However, new GM Marc Eversley doesn’t seem to think that way, and...

It has been an absolutely crazy season in the Association, and we’ve finally reached the NBA Finals nearly a full calendar year after the 2019-20 campaign got underway last October. While LeBron James and the Lakers being in this position is no surprise, very few saw Jimmy Butler’s Heat making it this far. The Lakers are the heavy Vegas favorite in these Finals, and for good reason. They have the two best players in the series in LeBron and Anthony Davis, and both guys have been playing at an extremely high level throughout...

Chicago Bulls draft rumors: lottery prospects discuss contact with Karnisovas

Photo by Harry Langer/DeFodi Images via New Hints on who the Chicago Bulls may be targeting in the draft Fifty days until NBA draft day! ....and today we got some hints on who the Bulls may pick. It feels like new Bulls executive Arturas Karnisovas could go a few different directions with the pick, adding an air of mystery to a team that has drafted very predictably in recent years. Obviously, if Gar Forman and John Paxson were in charge, Iowa State guard Tyrese Haliburton would already be apartment hunting in Chicago after receiving a promise from the team. As I said, Karnisovas is a...
