  • The Bulls make one aspect of rebuild clear: They’re constructing the roster around the face of the franchise in Lauri Markkanen

    The Bulls had a decision to make Thursday night at No. 7. Staring them in the face was Michael Porter Jr., undoubtedly the biggest risk in the draft but also one of the most talented, and a fan favorite to boot. Both Villanova's Mikal Bridges and Kentucky's Kevin Knox presented options who would fill needs on the wing for a Bulls team desperate for a perimeter threat.

  • Bulls select Wendell Carter Jr., find perfect frontcourt pairing for Lauri Markkanen

    The Bulls had the chance to make a major splash on draft night but opted to go with the safer play on Thursday, selecting Duke center Wendell Carter Jr. with the seventh overall selection. Carter Jr. played one season at Duke, averaging 13.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 26.8 minutes per game. Carter went from the cream of the draft class crop to a second option in the frontcourt, deferring to Bagley, who averaged 21 points, 11 rebounds and won ACC Player of the Year.

"We're going to be unstoppable," Carter Jr. said to reporters in Brooklyn. "He is a great player, someone I can learn from.

  • Bulls go big, take Carter at No. 7, Hutchison at No. 22

    The Chicago Bulls gave Lauri Markkanen a frontcourt running mate by drafting Duke's Wendell Carter Jr. Then they added help on the wing. More than anything, the Bulls insisted, they continued to position themselves to move up in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls went big with their first pick Thursday night, drafting Carter Jr. from Duke seventh overall and giving them another versatile frontcourt player to go with Markkanen.

  • Best player or need? Texas' Mohamed Bamba could represent best fit next to Lauri Markkanen

    Texas big man Mohamed Bamba's knowledge of the Bulls' roster was as impressive as his awareness of the concerns teams have expressed about him leading into the upcoming draft. Bamba had one part right in his interview session following an individual workout Friday afternoon: He knew to compliment Markkanen, who was a couple hundred feet away in the Advocate Center getting in a shooting session. "I think Lauri and I, we're in a sense ... the front court of the future," Bamba said.
