    With the Clippers having what’s looking like two late lottery picks I hope they trade up for either Trae Young or Colin Sexton. They need a PG bad.

    Looks like the Sixers will get the Lakers 1st round pick, hoping they can get Mikal Bridges. He'd be a great fit on a Brett Brown team.

    I feel like this is one of the more diversified draft in the top players. Multiple players in each position that could be taken early (SG a little different especially if you consider Doncic a PG)

    Who Chicago Bulls should draft?
    Bulls really likely won't get TOP3 or TOP5 so Bulls are drafting somewhere in TOP10.

    Which prospects are falling out of TOP5 right now.
    If Luka Doncic is one them i want him to Bulls.

    Doncic in SG or SF position ( i'm not impressed about Zach LaVine) would look very good with Lauri Markkanen. But as a Bulls fan i won't be pissed to get Michael Porter jr either.

    Maybe Mikal Bridges, good 3 and D player. I wouldn't get my hopes up on Doncic. If the rankings stay like they are, I see Doncic going to Memphis with the 2nd overall pick.

    Doncic has lacks for defence and athleticism.
    NBA scouts have questioned that how Doncic's game will translate to NBA.

    If those lacks will come red-flag for teams who are interested of Doncic
    then there's chance for that he could drop out of TOP5.

    Those unexpected droppings out of TOP5 ( example Timothy Liljegren last year)
    happens in NHL draft every year. So why an NBA draft would be exception to the rule.

    The NBA draft is different because teams draft for need immediately. Doncic’s defensive inability is entirely overstated. His one on one defending might not be great but his team defense is fine. Also he’s the best scorer in this draft in my opinion so a team like Memphis that has Conley who’s a great 1v1 defender can take him and hide his weaknesses and show off all of his strengths.

    Doncic will go top-3.

    Sadly, Doncic isn't falling past 2.

    At six, it's so wide open. If one of the big names fall, I see GarPax jumping on them.

    Who I want to see;

    Doncic (not happening)
    Young
    Bamba
    Porter

    In that order. If Jackson falls, you have to pounce on him. Don't think he falls tho no matter what some of the updated mocks are saying.

    22 I would take Musa If he's still there.

    Bulls odds to get TOP3 lottery pick is 18,2% ( i don't remember where i found that ) which is not bad.

    Not bad but that also means 82% not to get a top 3 pick.

    DiVincenzo has declared for the draft, joining Brunson and Bridges from Villanova.

    236 early entrees. 60 players drafted. about 40 at the absolutely most will be draft when you account for Seniors and International players. Some people don't do math/overvalue themselves when declaring.

    Doncic skipped workouts for Euroleague commitments. Does this make him fall?

    Doubt it. They've been scouting him all year, they know what he can do.

    And I bet about 50 of them were promised by their agents/family/etc. that they'd be first round picks.

    I saw that. I would think that that means Booker is dealt. I don't think that they can coexist in that backcourt.

    If Suns get the top pick and pass on Ayton they deserve to be contracted anyways.

    Nah. This is basically the Matthews/Laine vs of the NBA. Laine was never going to drop out of the top 2 and the same goes for Doncic.
