The Chicago Bulls now have a top-4 pick to work with in the 2020 NBA Draft.

A week ago, Chicago Bulls fans were thrilled to see the team jump from the seventh overall pick all the way up to number four in the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery. After picking at that dreaded no. 7 for three straight drafts, the Bulls finally got lucky after falling in recent years.

New Vice President of Basketball Operations Arturas Karnisovas has a youthful, exciting core to work with. He has the task of finding the right head coach to replace Jim Boylen, whom the team finally fired this offseason.

The question is, does Karnisovas want to try and reconstruct his roster from the get-go or does he want to get his first full offseason, draft and free agency period under his belt and ride out the first season?

This year’s draft class is a weak one. We’ve heard that plenty of times over the last several months. A no. 4 overall pick is exciting. It’s great to have. But, is it worth hanging onto in this type of class?

There are some intriguing names who could come available prior to draft night, should the Bulls and Karnisovas want to make a move. They very well could decide to deal the fourth overall selection — and maybe more, too.

Whether it be unloading salary along with the pick in preparation for next year or truly trying to add a valuable player going forward, Karnisovas may have some scenarios present themselves. There are four players to highlight who would be worthy of dealing that newly-acquired fourth overall selection in exchange for.
