A lot of interesting news surrounding the Chicago Bulls organization dropped on Oct. 28. The beginning to this week brought a lot of drama surrounding the Bulls thanks to injuries and various roster moves. That combined with who landed with the G-League affiliate Windy City Bulls on this happening Monday.
The Bulls aren’t off to the best start this season, with a 1-2 record after last weekend’s Oct. 26 home loss at the United Center to the defending NBA Champions Toronto Raptors. Their only win came over the Memphis Grizzlies in game two of this regular season on the road. The other loss came at the hands of the Charlotte Hornets in the season opener.
However, the big news for the Bulls didn’t come for the NBA squad, it was involved with their G-League team.
Two big name young players in the NBA wound up landing with the Bulls G-League affiliate on Oct. 28. The first is the former first round pick from the 2018 draft of the Chicago Bulls, former Boise State Broncos small forward Chandler Hutchison. He should reportedly be down with the Windy City Bulls in the G-League to get practice reps after he suffered a hamstring injury before Training Camp and the preseason.
One of the most underdrafted players from the 2019 NBA Draft will also be playing for the Chicago Bulls G-League affiliate Windy City Bulls. That underdrafted player from this year’s draft is the former Oregon Ducks five-star recruit and the Denver Nuggets big man Bol Bol.
The son of Manute Bol was the 44th overall pick of the Denver Nuggets in the 2019 NBA Draft (although he was officially selected by the Miami Heat before getting traded to the Mile High City). Bol Bol was not cleared to play yet for the Nuggets, due to a foot injury lingering from his time with the Oregon basketball program, but he should be good to go soon to play with the Windy City Bulls.
