Darius Garland falls to no. 7

To kick things off with a bang, the absolute perfect scenario for the Bulls would have to happen at pick no. 7 in the 2019 NBA Draft. It might be a long shot, due to the rumors of the Phoenix Suns giving him a draft day promise, but point guard Darius Garland would be the dream pick for the Bulls.

He only played in a handful of games last year at Vanderbilt due to injury — his only year in college — but Garland is still going to have his name called early in this year’s draft.

Garland is incredibly quick and shifty; slippery, even. He is made for today’s NBA as he’s not only quick but can create for himself and others. Garland is fantastic in ISO and can get to the hoop, but also has the ability to get hot from beyond the arc. It’s a small sample size, but in his five games last year, Garland shot nearly 48 percent from three-point range.

Getting Garland would mean the Bulls’ point guard problems are over. He would come in right away and become the starter. The Bulls’ starting five would be set in stone, and from here on out, it’d be about building depth. That process would begin almost immediately, as the Bulls look to add it with their second-round pick.
