The Chicago Bulls did a very much-anticipated thing during the 2018-19 campaign. They were not the worst in the league, but they certainly didn't take part, and won 22 games and finished with the fourth worst record in the NBA.
The Bulls already have a stable young talent and can contribute to the draft NBA next month. In addition, Chicago has a good chance of landing the full No. 1, which is the second best risk at 12.5 percent. They could still fall on the way to No. 8, however.
The Bulls will discover during the NBA Draft Lottery Tuesday night whether they will have a shot at Zion Williamson or not. They are expecting a little cooking at home, because the lottery is growing in The Windy City.
As bad as he looked at Chicago earlier in the season, the benefits are not too bad-standing really moving forward. This year, Zach LaVine took several major steps to improve it, and Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr are surely looking forward to impressive young prizes.
Of course, Chicago is still far away from controversy. The Bulls may still have a greater standing with a relatively high talent in a relatively thin roster in terms of depth, but their reconstruction process has really started, and they have been doing a decent job to date.
And if Chicago is able to make the best overall choice and take Zion Williamson? Then things change completely, as suddenly the Bulls will have a very frightening group of pigs.
Of course, while the Bulls have the second best in terms of percentage, there are three teams ahead of them that are attached to the best conditions, so it will be easier to do than for Chicago.
