Chicago Bulls Rumors
For the first time in the arena’s history, the United Center will serve as an “Election Day Super Site” for the 2020 General Election on Nov. 3, the Chicago Board of Elections announced Thursday. Chicago voters will be able to register to vote, drop off mail-in ballots and vote in person at the home of the Bulls and Blackhawks from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m CT on Election Day. The facility isn’t open for early voting.
LaMelo Ball, Tyrese Haliburton, and Killian Hayes have generated the most buzz among point guards. But Kira Lewis Jr. has seemingly entered the conversation as a potential riser and option for lottery teams. After a workout with the Orlando Magic last Thursday, sources tell Bleacher Report that Lewis worked out for the New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls this week. “Lewis has great speed, creates for himself and others and should thrive in today’s game,” one scout told B/R. “He’s still young [he turned 19 in April] after two years in college. He has upside.”
League sources say the Bulls are likely targeting a lead playmaker in the draft, which is why last week’s mock had them taking Killian Hayes. But LaMelo is the most talented passer in this class and is a tempting pick, although one that would immediately raise questions about Zach LaVine and Coby White’s futures in Chicago.
