The Bulls' NBA Draft big board, as voted on by you

The Bulls' NBA Draft big board, as voted on by you

The Bulls will find out where they're picking Tuesday night at the NBA Draft Lottery in Chicago.

They can pick anywhere from 1st to 8th, though there's just a 2.2 percent chance four teams jump them and they get the No. 8 pick.

So we asked you, the fans, to rank your top seven prospects heading into the Lottery. Here's how you voted:

1. Zion Williamson, PF, Duke
2. Ja Morant, PG, Murray State
3. R.J. Barrett, SG, Duke
4. Darius Garland, PG, Vanderbilt
5. Cam Reddish, SF, Duke
6. Jarrett Culver, SG, Texas Tech
7. Coby White, PG, North Carolina

A few things jump out at how you voted. It's no surprise that Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and R.J. Barrett lead the way. Williamson is a generational talent and the best pro prospect since Anthony Davis in 2011. Morant is a consensus top-3 pick and is an obvious fit in Chicago given the Bulls' need at point guard. While Barrett isn't all that efficient, he's a clear-cut top-3 prospect with plenty of upside.

After that, the need for point guard pushed Garland up to No. 4 on your big board. He only played in five games at Vanderbilt but is a five-star point guard with a knack for scoring and playmaking. Reddish had an ugly freshman season at Duke but entered Durham last fall rated higher than even Williamson by most recruiting services. Culver led the Red Raiders to the NCAA Championship Game and projects as an excellent two-way guard who is a jump shot away from being the steal of the draft. White is more of a scorer than a distributor but excels in transition and would give the Bulls another offensive threat.
