For weeks, there has been constant noise and rumors swirling that the Chicago Bulls will not keep both of their two first-round picks in the 2014 NBA Draft. Whatever they may decide to do with their picks may prove to have a major impact on the team’s future.

The latest comes from Sports Illustrated‘s Chris Mannix, who reported that the Bulls are aggressively trying to trade their first-round picks for either a shooter in the draft or a veteran scorer. Last week, it was reported that the Bulls were discussing a trade with the Denver Nuggets that would send their No. 16 and No. 19 picks to Denver for their No. 11 pick.

The Bulls seem determined to shed at least one of their picks to increase cap space. One option may be to keep one pick and then use the other pick to ‘draft and stash’ a player overseas. Another option is to move up in the draft, as in the Denver trade, and pick one player instead of two, or they may just trade away both picks for a proven veteran scorer, as Mannix mentioned. It is unclear who that veteran would be. Could that scorer be Kevin Love?

The Bulls are desperately seeking to add a shooter to pair in the back court to pair with Derrick Rose by any means possible. It is clear that they are exploring all options at this point.

Moving up and grabbing Nik Stauskas or Gary Harris would allow the Bulls to shed a draft pick and grab a more NBA-ready player in the lottery.

It is certainly shaping up to be an interesting night come June 26 for he Bulls.

Bulls' Noah Comes Nowhere Close To Making Jumper

Joakim Noah is a tremendous hustler and a gritty basketball player who does all the dirty work. That being said, this jump shot was terrible. This was the worst attempt that I've ever seen in my life and I don't expect that Noah will be shooting any more than layups for a good while.
