Bulls receive the 7th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft lottery
The Chicago Bulls will once again add to the struggling franchise’s young core come summertime. On Tuesday evening in the “Windy City,” the Bulls were officially informed that the Eastern Conference franchise will choose at No.7 overall in the first round of the 2019 NBA Draft — as it stands today, anyway.
The 2019 NBA Draft class is an especially deep one while garnering the seventh overall pick certainly puts the lowly Bulls in prime position to acquire a high-caliber player that will most definitely be able to step right in and contribute in Chicago.
Obviously, former Duke Blue Devils big man Zion Williamson will come off the board first come this summer while former Murray State Racers point guard Ja Morant, former Duke Blue Devils forward R.J. Barrett and several other talented up-and-comers will follow shortly thereafter.
One can expect the entire first round of the 2019 NBA Draft to become a star-studded affair before all is said and done.
Last season, the Bulls finished the year with a disappointing 22-60 record, good for the third-worst mark in the entire Eastern Conference. The Bulls finished the 2018-19 regular season ahead of only the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers.
Nontheless, the Bulls still made former interim head coach Jim Boylen the team’s new full-time head coach this offseason.
Boylen notably took over for current Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Fred Hoiberg midway through the 2018-19 regular season.
