The 2019-20 Chicago Bulls are only four games out of the eighth seed at the time of publishing. It is fair to start speculating on the draft front, however, because the Bulls are currently struggling during a four-game losing streak.

An intriguing, young prospect would be Deni Avdija. The 6-foot-8 forward from Israel has all the tools to potentially be the missing piece the Bulls need. Avdija has shown to be a solid perimeter defender, and he is no slouch on the offensive side of the ball either.

In July of 2019, Deni was the FIBA-Europe Under-20 Championship MVP. This young man had one hell of a tourney and really showcased his skillset, which put him on the radar of NBA Scouts.

Though Deni doesn’t have a big frame like Luka Doncic, he possesses several similar skills. He can run an offense as a point forward and play well off the ball, which would give Zach LaVine the opportunity to create. Playing pick-and-pop with Lauri Markkanen is also a fantastic possible scenario, as both players can get to the rim and both can shoot the long ball.

Look for him to go in the top-ten of the 2020 NBA Draft. According to, the Bulls sit right around pick number eight as of now. Deni Avdija is slated to go at pick seven.

[…] He’s versatile, which is a plus, but Avdija does come with concerns. His three-point shooting and free-throw shooting are subpar at best, and that is cause for concern. Chicago needs a wing to space the floor, and Avdija’s fluctuating form may mean he will never be a guy who will hit shots from deep at a decent clip.
