The Chicago Bulls came away with the no. 4 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery.

What a night it was for the Chicago Bulls. Finally, fans had something to cheer about. Well, actually, you could argue it’s been a few months of excitement.

The Bulls landed the fourth pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, but that came after Jim Boylen was recently fired and in the same year that both John Paxson and Gar Forman were relieved of their duties within the organization.

So, you could say that Bulls fans have had one heck of a year, despite the pandemic.

Going into Thursday night’s Draft Lottery, the Bulls’ most likely outcome was falling to the seventh or eighth pick overall. In total, they had a 32 percent chance at a top-4 pick, and that’s exactly what they ended up with.

This year’s class is an intriguing one, because the collegiate class is a whole lot less exciting than recent years. There are a few international prospects which could fascinate some general managers, and Arturas Karnisovas just might be one of them.

Karnisovas came to the Bulls from the Denver Nuggets, where he specialized in international scouting. He did, after all, have a hand in the Nuggets drafting Nikola Jokic. If he could help the Bulls find a similar player in terms of impact, fans would be thrilled.

But, at no. 4, no one really knows what will happen. There are arguably three or four premier players in this draft, including James Wiseman, LaMelo Ball and Anthony Edwards.

However, because of this class not necessarily boasting a true superstar, it’s going to be difficult to predict just where each team goes. Where the Bulls stand, there are three particular players to keep an eye on.
