According to Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald, the Chicago Bulls are indeed interested in shopping a player for a lottery pick in this year’s draft. League sources confirmed to McGraw that the Bulls are interested in obtaining a high draft pick, and are willing to part ways with Luol Deng to do so. “The Bulls are disappointed Deng is planning to wait until after the London Olympics to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist,” writes McGraw. Add that to the fact that the Bulls, as constructed now, will be millions over the salary cap next season. One route to fix this was to minimize the depth (Korver, Brewer, Watson) and keep core players (Deng, Rose, Boozer, Noah, Gibson), however, management now shows interest in dumping a high salaried player and retool. They are said to be interested in playmaking guards such as Harrison Barnes – who was brought in to meet with management, Austin Rivers, Jeremy Lamb and Dion Waiters to name a few. Trade rumors have been floating around suggesting talks with Toronto, Sacramento and Golden State. Talks are limited and we will not know much until draft night on June 28.
