With the 22nd pick in the 2018 GBB Community Mock NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls select Dzanan Musa, forward, Cedevita
If you’re not familiar with Musa, get familiar. Luka Doncic gets all the publicity, but Dzanza Musa can get buckets. Here is Greg with the logic behind the pick-
I think Musa brings an amazing amount of versatility, which is vital to the current state of the NBA. Can play anywhere from the 1 to the 4 depending on the lineup, he handles the ball well, and can score from anywhere on the court. He is more explosive than quick, especially at his size. Can also defend well. Perfect player for this NBA. We’re lucky he was still on the board.
A very good pick for the Bulls, who pair Musa with Collin Sexton for the future in Chicago.
We have a trade at #23! Check and see who moved up, and back, in our next post!
