Looking at this year’s crop of point guard prospects for the 2019 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls may have some options later on.

All offseason long, it seems the primary talk with the Chicago Bulls has been regarding what the team will do at the point guard position. Since the days of prime Derrick Rose, the Bulls have not had a legitimate, starting option at the point guard position.

And, please, all of you Rajon Rondo truthers — don’t even get me started.

Over the last two seasons, the Bulls have been waiting for former no. 5 overall pick Kris Dunn to pan out and develop into their point guard of the future. Coming out of Providence, he certainly had a plethora of promise to become just that for an NBA franchise.

To this day, Dunn has developed into nothing more than what he’s been all along: A kid with potential. The only problem is, that potential has aimed more towards being a perimeter defender than anything else. When people talk about Dunn, the only positives come when the topic of defense comes up.

Offensively, Dunn has struggled. His decision-making is questionable at best, and he hasn’t been able to truly put all of it together at the pro level. Maybe that’s why his trade market is non-existent, even as a 25-year-old, former lottery pick.

Most agree that the Bulls will address the point guard position in either the 2019 NBA Draft or this summer in free agency. Heck, it wouldn’t surprise me if they did both.

If they decided to wait a bit longer on the position in this year’s draft, though, could they find a developmental gem worth stashing? There are several whom fit that category, and below I highlight just a few. Let’s get started.
