Chandler Hutchison abruptly cancelled his NBA Combine trip a month ago because of a promise given to him by a team in the 20s.
And the Bulls fulfilled that reported promise on Thursday night by taking Hutchison with the 22nd overall pick.
Hutchison, a senior, came on strong in his final two seasons with Boise State, and as a senior averaged 20.0 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 31.0 minutes. He shot nearly 48 percent from the field, shot a respectable 36 percent from 3-point range and averaged 1.5 steals.
The pick comes after the Bulls opted for the safe route and Duke center Wendell Carter with the 7th pick.
The Bulls were in desparate need of versatility on the wing and they get it in Hutchison, who projects as someone who can play both forward positions.
