It's no secret that the 2017 NBA Draft features a stacked class. With so many talented players set to enter the league, the SportsTalk Live panel debated which type of player the Bulls should go after.
Mark Schanowski, CSN's Bulls Pregame and Postgame Live host, discussed how rolling the dice on a guy with high upside is the way to go.
"You gotta go for a guy like Giannis Antetokounmpo or Thon Maker like Milwaukee is doing," Schanowski said. "Go for the seven-foot guy with upside, who it might take a couple years but might develop into a star."
Obviously, the Bulls' options will be limited depending on where the team finishes the season. Right now, Fred Hoiberg's squad sits at 32-36, one game behind the Pistons for the No. 8 seed in the playoff race.
If the Bulls end up missing the postseason for the second consecutive year, their fate will be up to the Draft Lottery's ping pong balls. Either way, though, the team needs to hit on their pick. The Bulls' last five first round selections have been Marquis Teague (2012), Tony Snell (2013), Doug McDermott (2014 acquired via trade with Denver), Bobby Portis (2015) and Denzel Valentine (2016).
