The 2017-18 Bulls season is finally, mercifully over. The Bulls finished the season on a four-game losing streak that helped them fall behind the Brooklyn Nets and tie the Sacramento Kings in the standings with a 27-55 record.
A Friday coin flip determines who picks higher between Bulls and Kings should neither move into top-3 after May 15 draft lottery. As for Pelicans’ pick acquired in Niko trade, that will be No. 20, 21, 22 or 23 following tiebreaker coin flips for 4 Western Conference teams. https://t.co/AGODHUTUUQ

With the Bulls having just an 18.25% chance at landing a top-3 pick in the lottery, it looks like we are a coinflip away from being able to assume where the Bulls will be drafting in the 2018 draft.
With that being said, let’s just say the Bulls end up with the sixth pick. What type of player will they be getting at that spot?
Well, there’s a lot still to be determined in the pre-draft process, but outside of Michael Porter Jr. there isn’t a whole lot of top-end wings. Maybe the Bulls reach on a guy like Mikal Bridges, but I’d expect the Bulls to end up with a big man, as someone out of the Marvin Bagley-Jarren Jackson Jr.-Mo Bamba-Wendell Carter group will be available.
The Bulls will officially learn their draft position on May 15th.
