Lebron just got RJ Barrett, better than what the Bulls were expected to get as support.  I am guessing he will be fine.

I doubt Barrett is there at 4.

I was just being lenient.  My point was that they likely won’t be bad enough going forward to get a top 3 draft pick so they won’t ever improve, hence NBA hell.

They could easily be the 7th or 8th worst team in the league next season. The teams with the 7th and 8th worst records last season just got the top two picks.

Ok I'm happy with that result. Congrats to New Orleans. Maybe AD stays now. Knicks gonna get R.J. Barrett though which sucks but... Not Zion!

NBA.com has a story saying Davis still wants out of new orleans.

The Athletic's Mock

1. Pelicans - Zion
2. Grizzlies - Morant
3. Knicks - Barrett
4. Lakers - Culver
5. Cavaliers - Hunter
6. Suns - Garland
7. Bulls - White
8. Hawks - Reddish

Big concern with White is making plays in the half court, but expects him to fit well with the Bulls due to his speed, scoring ability and length, which gives him some defensive versatility. 

Does talk about how Reddish could flourish with spacing around him.

Is what it is. 

Bulls are not in a fun place right now. Very boring.

white is a good pick at 7 but not sure his fit. Free agency terrifies me.

Lucky for him all he’ll be asked to do is past to the post and “let them pound the rock with great spirit”.

I hate that they extended Boylen. I'm hoping Chris Fleming can bring something to the table towards revamping the offense. 

Forgot to include this in the mock: 

38. Bulls - Admiral Schofield 

Schofield is a perfect fit if he doesn't become cash considerations. Big wingspan and can defend, can hit the 3.

Worked out for both sides, but the mavs traded the 10th overall pick in a trash draft and got a star in Doncic. Sigh.

Obviously this sucks and the Bulls need all the luck they can get but of the four teams currently in the Conference Finals there’s exactly one top 5 pick playing (Durant). Brooks Lopez is the only lottery pick starter in the ECF and he was at 10. I feel like people overrate draft position.

Not in this draft it wasn’t. Zion was a once a decade guy.

I can't stand that the Bulls winning that coin toss gave them the 7th pick. Losing the coin toss, they walk away with Doncic.

Anyway, at this point it looks like the Bulls are destined to get Coby White. Trying to convince myself that he'll be fine, kind of like last season with Wendell, which ended up working out.

Reading The Ringer's draft guide on him makes me feel a little better as someone who didn't catch many UNC games.

Also wondering what the hell the Bulls end up doing with Dunn. I'm wondering if they could swing a deal for a 2nd rounder and snatch Darius Bazley to try and get some home run potential/front court depth in the second.

This just sucks, because now the question becomes: Can Lauri and LaVine lead a supporting cast of Porter-Carter-White-Valentine-Hutchinson and some free agents into at least the second round? It's basically the ceiling of the Baby Bulls.

White is probably the best pick but I expect him to struggle a lot year 1.

The question is can Lauri and lavine and a supporting cast of John Paxson free agents make the 8th seed. 

Talent wise hard to picture them near a second round that this year featured Celtics/bucks/raps/76ers. They are closer to Orlando than Brooklyn, and feel so far from even the pacers. 

Very, very little depth. Those teams are all closer to 10 deep. Bulls are 4 deep.

Reinsdorf is the worst thing to happen to Chicago sports

Eh, 7 rings is far from the worst thing. While Jordan was already on the team, a team still needed to be put in place around him. Post-Rose injury when the Bulls just stopped trying, I'll give you. 

I'm afraid they try to trade the #7 for Jrue. I'd rather they just pay up for Brogdon, then draft Bol Bol.

Naw Jrue would be peeerfect for bulls, and I don't think Pels are into trading jrue anymore.

It's going to be for conley if anyone.
