The Chicago Bulls have drafted Chandler Hutchison with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, making the selection on Thursday night. Hutchinson is the second player drafted by the Bulls in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft on Thursday night.
The 22-year-old small forward out of Boise State was reportedly promised that he would be selected with the 22nd overall pick by the Bulls according to reports a few months back. On Thursday night, they made that a reality.
Hutchison averaged 20 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3. 5 assists per game in the 2017-18 season for the Broncos.
Here’s a breakdown on Hutchison from Sports Illustrated:
Having physically dominated against high school competition, Hutchison never refined his perimeter skill set until arriving in college. After working diligently with assistant coach Phil Beckner, who helped develop Damian Lillard at Weber State, Hutchison has emerged as a well-rounded wing and an ideal fit for the positionless era.
