#22 – Chandler Hutchinson – Chicago Bulls

With the 22nd pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls selected shooting guard Chandler Hutchinson out of Boise State University.

After shoring up their frontcourt with Wendell Carter Jr., the Bulls made a move to improve their backcourt depth by taking Hutchinson. While he was a late bloomer relative to other prospects, Hutchison had a more than stellar senior season with the Broncos, averaging 20 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game while shooting 35.9 percent from three across 31 games.

Asked to carry the load for the Broncos, Hutchinson more than obliged. He was great as a spot up shooter and showed flashes as a playmaker in the open court. Hutchinson also put in work on the defensive end, with great communication skills and good instincts on that side of the ball.

He isn’t the most athletic, nor is he an elite shooter, but Hutchinson improved his game every season at Boise State and the Bulls hope that is a trend that will continue in Chicago. He should form a nice trio with Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine in the Bulls’ backcourt, if not a competent scoring one.

With the No. 30 pick in the NBA draft, the Atlanta Hawks selected Omari Spellman from Villanova University. .

After 10 consecutive seasons reaching the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks failed to win 25 contests in 2018. Gone are All-Stars Joe Johnson, Al Horford, Paul Millsap, Kyle Korver and Jeff Teague, all of whom the franchise groomed at various points during their decade of playoff bliss. Now the team is faced with a daunting rebuild under second year general manager Travis Schlenk and first year coach Lloyd Pierce.

Spellman was the third Villanova player selected in the first round of this year’s draft behind Mikal Bridges (No. 10 overall) and Donte DiVincenzo (No. 17 overall). In his lone campaign with the Wildcats, Spellman appeared in 40 contests and averaged 10.9 points, eight rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.

The Hawks continue to add shooting to their rebuilding roster. With the No. 3 overall pick, the team selected Luka Doncic, who will be traded to the Dallas Mavericks for the rights to No. 5 overall pick Trae Young. The team used the No. 19 overall selection to draft shooting guard Kevin Huerter from the University of Maryland. In Spellman, the Hawks acquire a big man that shot 43 percent from the collegiate three-point line last season.

In addition to Young and Huerter, Spellman will join a young Hawks core featuring point guard Dennis Schroder and forward John Collins, two of the team’s first round draft picks from prior years.
