Initial Post-Draft Depth Chart for Chicago Bulls
Associated Press
Jimmy Butler will start once again, but will Taj Gibson finally slide up?

The Chicago Bulls made some draft-day moves to get the guy they wanted, so how will it affect their depth chart?

As first reported by USA Today’s Sam Amick, the Bulls traded their 16th and 19th picks to the Denver Nuggets for Creighton's Doug McDermott. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver later announced during the draft Anthony Randolph was included in the deal.

The 22-year-old will challenge Mike Dunleavy for the starting 3 spot, and could potentially win it given that he's a better scorer and a more capable defender.

The remaining starters will be more or less similar to the 2013-14 regular season's. The biggest addition will once again be Derrick Rose, who is returning to the starting lineup after missing his second consecutive season due to a knee injury.

Power forward stands to be a heated battle.

Taj Gibson has been ready to start for nearly a year now, and if Carlos Boozer continues to regress, he will surely head to the bench in place of the more athletic and defensively sound Gibson.

We'll start things off with the point guard spot and move up from there.
