The Chicago Bulls are only 2 weeks into the season, but it is clear that the team must draft a point guard in the 2018 NBA Draft.

In the off season, many thought that when the team made the decision to trade Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves they were making a smart decision. After all, the Bulls just received Kris Dunn, Zach Lavine and the pick that became Lauri Markkanen. Through 5 games, Markkanen has looked like a top 3 pick, which would be a steal for the Bulls who chose him at number 7. So far, Lauri is just behind Justin Holiday in scoring, averaging 15.6. He is also leading the team at close to 10 rebounds a game. For any rookie to average a double double in their first season is stunning, it would be even more stunning for the 7th pick to.

Despite the stellar play from Holiday and Markkanen, the point guard position for the Bulls may just be one of the worst units in the entire league. From the players who are listed as PG’s(Nwaba, Grant, Dunn, and Felder), they are averaging a combined 28 points per game. From 4 players getting minutes, that average is not enough for the Bulls, or any NBA team for that matter.

It’s a good thing that the upcoming NCAAB season will provide some of the best point guards in recent memory, and with the Bulls more than likely receiving a top 5 pick, it would be wise to draft the point guard of the future next June. Let’s take a look at 5 play makers the Bulls should consider drafting.
