The Chicago Bulls would normally get our 2022 first round pick, but that pick is top 14 protected. We would then send our following year's 1st rounder to Chicago unless we finished top 14 again. This would continue until either we finished better than top 14 or the 2028 draft, in which case we'd give our 2nd round pick.
So.. if we did finish porrly enough to be top 14 (and we are well on track to do so), what are some players you would like to see us have a chance at that might help turn this franchise around a little bit?
The only guy I can think of right off the top of my head that could be instant help to us is PAOLO BANCHERO, though he might not fall to us (who knows, the draft is still a half year away, and we have plenty of suck left in us).
PF PAOLO BANCHERO (Duke): 17.1 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 48.7 FG%, 33.3 3PT%, 2.2 AST, .7 BLK
Seems like the closest to an instant fit for us. I haven't looked at a ton of different mocks but I'm seeing him as #1. Lots of time for him to fall or us to "rise". Someone like Detroit or Suckramento will probably nab him.
Anyone you guys and gals have your eyes on?
