Thursday night, the 2021 NBA Draft finally takes place and the Chicago Bulls will be waiting around for a while before the finally make a selection.
Before the trade deadline last season, the Bulls of course made a splash move to acquire former Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic. In order to secure the All Star center, the Bulls traded a pair of first-round picks, including this year’s no. 8 overall selection.
For the Bulls to get an All Star at the deadline says a lot about Vice President Arturas Karnisovas. This organization is serious about winning, and giving up that kind of draft capital proves as much.
Still, Chicago is not without a pick on Thursday night. The Bulls still have a second-round selection at no. 38 overall. The second round is anyone’s guess at just about every given pick, so it’s tough to predict what the Bulls will do. However, one position is at the forefront of everyone’s mind this offseason.
With their second-round pick, the Chicago Bulls could have plenty of options at point guard.
The Bulls have yet to find their true starting point guard, but this offseason could provide clarity. With free agents like Lonzo Ball, Spencer Dinwiddie and Derrick Rose available, Chicago is most likely going to bring one of them in to solidify the position.
Coby White was benched last year in favor of Tomas Satoransky, whom could be traded this offseason. White will stick around as a spark plug off the bench, but the Bulls still need depth there, regardless.
At pick 38, Chicago could definitely find a player who rounds out their roster and may even play meaningful minutes. This offseason is going to be all about the point guard position, so look no further than the following five point guards for the Bulls in the second round.
