Lauri Markkanen entered the University of Arizona in 2016. He became the first player to wear the No. 10 jersey since Mike Bibby. He was selected by the Bulls with the seventh overall pick in the first round in 2017.
Markkanen originally seemed to be another representative figure who was at the peak of his debut. As a second-year student, he was able to score 18+9 data. Then Markkanen began to change his style of play and gradually gained weight. The 15 shots dropped sharply to around 10, which did not take advantage of the soft touch of the big white man.
