The Chicago Bulls have struggled to make the NBA playoffs in recent seasons, finishing close to the lottery positions every year. With one of their biggest weaknesses being playmaking, they could look to address that issue in the upcoming NBA Draft 2020. 

The Bulls are planning to pick LaMelo Ball with their fourth overall pick in the NBA Draft 2020, as multiple sources have suggested that the Illawarra Hawks point guard might drop that low. Ball is touted to be a star in the league, in which his older brother Lonzo already plays. 

The Bulls currently have Zach LaVine and Coby White in the backcourt. Apart from playmaking, the Chicago Balls also lack size and defense in the guard positions. Ball, who is 6 '7" and has a 6' 10" wingspan, is a versatile defender who could help the Chicago Bulls massively.
