Bulls go big, take Carter at No. 7, Hutchison at No. 22

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Bulls gave Lauri Markkanen a frontcourt running mate by drafting Duke's Wendell Carter Jr. Then they added help on the wing.

More than anything, the Bulls insisted, they continued to position themselves to move up in the Eastern Conference.

The Bulls went big with their first pick Thursday night, drafting Carter Jr. from Duke seventh overall and giving them another versatile frontcourt player to go with Markkanen. They took Boise State's Chandler Hutchison at No. 22.
