While the 2020 NBA Playoffs are going on in the NBA bubble in Orlando, the league is proceeding with their offseason events as best as they can. On Thursday, the league held its annual draft lottery to determine the first 14 picks in October’s 2020 NBA Draft.
Chicago entered this draft sitting at No. 7 with a 7.5 percent chance of getting the first pick. They then moved into the Top 4 after the New York Knicks were slotted at No. 8.
For the Chicago Bulls, the team will pick fourth overall in the upcoming draft.

With a new regime in place this is a very important draft for the franchise. They hired Arturas Karnasovas as president of basketball operations and hired Marc Eversley as general manager over the offseason. They then fired Jim Boylen and are in the middle of a coaching search as this offseason continues. Start winning more bets using BetQL.

Chicago can really improve at any position on their roster giving them a lot of flexibility in this draft. Plus, Karnasovas won’t shy away from being aggressive, potentially making a move if needed.
