Chicago Bulls Latest Trade Rumors 2014: Team Trying to Trade Draft Picks for Veteran Scorer?

The Chicago Bulls are looking for a boost after losing in the first round of the playoffs, and one of the possible deals is trading draft picks for a veterans scorer.

The Bulls are known to be a defensive stronghouse but pretty weak on offense.

The Bulls have the No. 16 and No. 19 picks in the first round of the draft, and are willing to trade both of them if need be.

“Chicago is aggressively trying to move its two first-round picks, according to rival executives,” reports Sports Illustrated.

“The Bulls are believed to be looking for either a veteran scorer or the chance to move up in the draft to select a young wing player with scoring potential.”

ESPN previously reported that the Bulls have offered the Denver Nuggets the two picks for the No. 11 pick, which the team would then use to snag Gary Harris or Nik Stauskas, with the latter being the favorite right now.

But with Derrick Rose returning, Tony Snell improving, and Nikola Mirotic potentially joining the team after finishing up with Real Madrid, the Bulls might benefit more from a veteran scorer then a young player.

No specific players have been linked to the new trade rumors as of yet.

The Bulls have also been linked to both Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James.
