The pick is in.
With the 18th pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls nabbed Arizona wing Dalen Terry.
Terry, 19, was a fast riser in the predraft process because of his physical tools — he measured 6-foot-7 with a nearly 7-1 wingspan at the combine — and profile as a potential 3-and-D wing at the NBA level.
Terry played two seasons at Arizona, averaging 8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.2 steals and earning Pac-12 All-Defense honors in 2021-22. That included shooting 50.2 percent from the field, 36.4 percent from 3-point range and 73.6 percent from the free-throw line.
While Terry was widely projected to go in the pick No. 20-30 range, the Bulls' bet is on his defensive versatility and offensive upside.
Oh, and his confidence, which led him to declare at a predraft workout that "there’s gonna be a redraft in 10 years and it’s gonna be different" when asked about his late first round projection.
