In the first edition of our 2020 NBA Mock Draft for the Chicago Bulls, they get a bit of luck from the lottery and also steal a potential stud.

These are tough times for sports fans. It has been nearly two months since the NBA season was put on hold and, at the moment, things still seem way up in the air. While the Chicago Bulls weren’t exactly in playoff contention, I think it’s safe to say that fans would be thrilled to see their team back on the court any day now.

Although the season was put on hiatus, the Bulls have been incredibly busy. It’s almost as if their offseason has begun, in a way. Even if the season does resume at some point, the organization has clearly taken a step forward and is looking beyond this current campaign.

Hiring Arturas Karnisovas was a phenomenal decision for Chicago. Karnisovas coming to the Bulls was the first step of completely renovating the franchise. It seems like Gar Forman and John Paxson have run this team forever, while essentially running it into the ground. But, no more. It’s the dawn of a new era.

At the moment, Karnisovas is busy filling out his staff. Will Jim Boylen hang around? I doubt it. That’s the big question that still needs answering, but I think it’s safe to say that most assume Boylen is as good as gone.

What about the 2020 NBA Draft? The Lottery, along with the Combine, has been postponed. It is a sad reality, but it is indeed a reality we have to live with. However, we can still look forward in angst.

Right now, the Bulls’ odds have them sitting at pick no. 7 — again. Yes, for the fourth straight season, they would pick number seven overall. However, in a simulation done thanks to Tankathon, we have the Bulls selecting at fifth overall in this instance.

What should the Bulls do in a ho-hum type of draft this year? Let’s take a look at our first edition of a 2020 Mock Draft for our hometown Bulls.
