As you all know, the 2011 NBA Draft is quickly approaching.
All teams view the draft as a way to improve their current rosters. This can happen by either drafting in your place or perhaps trading up or down.
Picks No. 1 through No. 14 were determined by the draft lottery on May 17. The remaining picks were determined by the records of regular season.
And although the lottery is where the "best" players are chosen, the players drafted in the entire first round are world class.
The 2010-2011 season was a very successful one for the Chicago Bulls. The season saw them reach the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since the championship 1998 season.
The Bulls reached the Eastern finals on the back of a young roster, including NBA MVP Derrick Rose.
So heading to next season, the Bulls are simply looking to improve. With two draft picks late in the first round, they have the opportunity to do just that.
Will they pair them together to make a trade?
Or will they keep the picks and allow a young roster to become younger?
