2011 NBA Draft: Are the Chicago Bulls Shopping Their First Round Draft Picks?
The Chicago Bulls made some serious strides this past season posting the league's best record behind the league's MVP, Derrick Rose.
They hold two of the final three first round picks in this Thursday's draft. According to Yahoo! Sports latest mock draft, the Bulls are actively shopping one or both of these picks.
The Bulls are telling interested teams they’re unlikely to keep both of their first-round selections, which means this pick could be in someone else’s hands on draft night. They are looking at packaging both picks and moving up, or possibly selling one for cash if the offer is right.
It's no secret that the Bulls need a shooting guard to help out Derrick Rose offensively. While Ronnie Brewer and Kyle Korver serve their purpose for the team, they are liabilities on the court in different facets and neither can be relied on consistently to score points.
The Bulls reportedly were high on Klay Thompson and could use the picks along with a player on the roster to move up and draft the Washington St. shooting guard. If the Bulls can't trade up, they could use the picks to develop a player like Tyler Honeycutt for a few years.
But given the Bulls recent turnaround, they're more likely to try an add a player who can help them now. This could make them aggressive to get a player they covet in the draft come Thursday night.
