It's the moment Bulls fans have been waiting for all season, NBA Draft day. Unfortunately the Bulls don't have a top-four pick like they were hoping for, picking at seventh for the third consecutive season.
But the last couple of No. 7 picks have worked out well for the Bulls so optimism is abundant.
Ahead of the draft, NBC Sports collected some of the best basketball minds from around the country to look ahead to draft in the NBA Draft Preview Show, which will stream exclusively in the MyTeams App in two parts at 11 a.m. CT and at 2 p.m. CT.
NBC Sports' national basketball insider Tom Haberstroh will host and lead the discussions, including with our own Bulls pregame host Mark Schanowski. Fans can submit questions on social media using the hashtag #NBADraftNBC.
