If the Chicago Bulls move back in the 2020 NBA Draft, could they target a guard?
If there is any area on this current Chicago Bulls roster that needs clearing up, it’s in the back court. This next month is going to tell us a lot about what Billy Donovan is going to have to work with at the guard spots.
Last season, fans became frustrated with former head coach Jim Boylen due to his unwillingness to start then-rookie Coby White. Finally, Boylen threw White into his starting lineup, but the season was put on hold shortly after. So, Bulls fans have yet to see White starting next to Zach LaVine for a decent sample size.
This season, fans should be able to see that from the get-go. But, what will happen with the rest of the guards behind them? Chicago kind of has a mess of guards on their hands, and has to make some decisions in the coming days.
Will they extend a qualifying offer to Kris Dunn? Will Shaquille Harrison stick around? How about Ryan Arcidiacono? Then, you have Tomas Satoransky whose deal goes for another two years at $10 million annually.
The issue is, the Bulls very well could end up with a young, talented guard in this year’s draft, too. Then, what do they do with the excess guards on the roster? Something will have to happen.
Much has been made about the Bulls moving back in the draft this year, as there are no real guarantees in this class. If they do move back, the Bulls could target one of several intriguing guard prospects whom would have ideal tutelage under Donovan and his staff. Let’s look at a few of those youngsters.
