What to expect when the Bulls visit Hillcrest?
A visit to Hillcreto, LA, to take part in a charity basketball game is not a normal occurrence for the Bulls.
But when it comes to basketball, the Hillcres are as close to the NBA as the Bulls get.
So when the team’s newest addition, the 6-foot-10, 210-pound rookie center Dwayne Harris, makes a brief appearance, it will likely be a welcome one.
“It’s something I’m always looking forward to,” Harris said of playing in front of Hillcriston.
“You never know when you’re going to get a chance to play here.
“I think it’s going to be a really fun experience.” “
Harris is one of three players who have been selected in the first round of the NBA draft, joining Isaiah Thomas and Ben Simmons in the group of four Bulls selected in that spot. “

Harris is one of three players who have been selected in the first round of the NBA draft, joining Isaiah Thomas and Ben Simmons in the group of four Bulls selected in that spot.
The Bulls are currently looking to trade down to select Harris with the sixth pick in the draft.
And while he has yet to play in a game, Harris has been a productive player during his time with the Hillcats.
In the last three games, Harris scored 20 points, grabbed six rebounds and shot 5-for-8 from 3-point range during the Bulls’ 111-108 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.
Harris was one of seven Hillcats who were in attendance for the game.
“He’s been a great addition to the roster and I’m looking forward for him to be here for the start of the season,” Hillcrier Derrick Lillard said.
“Dwayne Harris is a good young guy who has played really well for us and he’s really ready to be part of our team.”
Harris started his collegiate career at Kentucky.
He then transferred to Southern Miss to play for coach Josh Jackson.
Harris is expected to play with the Clippers during the first week of the regular season, but the Bulls are hopeful that he can help the Bulls win games.
“We’ve got a lot of young guys that we’re going in for,” Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said.
“(Harris) can fill a lot for us.
We’ll see how it goes.”
Hillcrenia coach Jason Miller said that Harris’ play in the preseason should be a major help for the team.
“What’s going on right now is a big step,” Miller said.
Harris, who has started two games this preseason, is averaging 14.4 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 15.3 minutes per game.
He shot 40.3 percent in the league’s preseason games, and is averaging 6.6 points and 4.3 rebounds.
