2. Draft what the team needs, not the best player available.

The Bulls are currently stuck in a conundrum. Do you draft a big name player like Zion Williamson or do you decide to go with a guy who will fill a need? While most would choose to draft Williamson, the reality is that the Bulls have a need at the Point Guard position and would benefit from drafting someone like Ja Morant.

Looking at the Bulls roster right now, one thing is very clear: The Bulls envision Otto Porter and Lauri Markkanen as the future at the Small Forward and Power Forward positions. Additionally, with Wendell Carter Jr. emerging as the future at the Center position, it’s very difficult to see the Bulls adding another big man.

Should the team end up with a top-five pick, then adding a point guard should become the team’s first priority. Having a floor general who can grow with the young talent that is already on the roster could help change the franchise’s fortunes for years to come.

Going best player available does have its advantages, but filling in a need could be the best route to go. Point Guard has been one position where the Bulls have had problems since they moved on from Derrick Rose. Drafting someone with a high draft pick could help fix that problem.
