Forward Brandon Clarke, Gonzaga

Speaking of bolstering depth in the front court, Brandon Clarke would be another interesting add in Chicago. I know it may seem strange to continue hammering the word “depth” with the Bulls owning a lottery pick, but outside of the point guard position, that’s truly what they need at this point.

Clarke had a phenomenal junior season last year with the Zags. The 6-foot-8 forward put up 16.9 points and 8.6 rebounds per game while shooting over 68 percent from the field overall. An underrated portion of Clarke’s line from last year? He only turned the ball over 1.5 times per game, while playing over 28 minutes each contest.

One of the best facets of Clarke’s game is on the defensive end. He blocked a ridiculous 3.2 shots per game in 2018-2019, and came up with over a steal per game as well. He’s a long, physical forward who looks to do his damage on the defensive end, first and foremost.

When looking at the type of players the Bulls may add, you have to think of their now-long-term head coach, Jim Boylen. Clarke could certainly fit the style Boylen is looking for, as his focus on the defensive end would be refreshing.
