According to Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic, the Chicago Bulls were supposed to watch LaMelo Ball’s pre-draft workout last Friday. Per Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress, they didn’t show up. Now, this could be typical NBA smoke-screen action, but the Bulls have been linked to other point guards in the upcoming draft other than LaMelo.
The Bulls have worked out Alabama guard Kira Lewis Jr. and Iowa State Guard Tyrese Haliburton, both of whom play the point guard position.
Once again, this report could just be deceptive messaging considering the Chicago Bulls have been very tight lipped since Artūras Karnišovas and Marc Eversley arrived.
While LaMelo Ball has been rumored to go within the top three of the NBA Draft, maybe the Chicago Bulls will stand pat at pick four and take their chances with the pick instead of trading up. Who knows? We’ll have our answers when the draft commences on Wednesday night.
