Report: Bulls 'aggressively' trying to move both 1st-round picks

June 18, 7:20 PM

The Chicago Bulls are hoping to turn a pair of first-round draft picks into a player that can help their team now. 

After a report on Monday stated that the Bulls were willing to move any player not named Derrick Rose in order to improve their roster, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated took it further on Wednesday, saying that the team is willing to move their picks as well. 

Chicago is aggressively trying to move its two first-round picks, according to rival executives. 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.

Chicago currently own the 16th and 19th selection in the 2014 NBA draft.
