Draft Expert: Don’t Expect Any Big Moves From Bulls In Draft
(WSCR) As the NBA world prepares for the 2012 Draft, trade rumors are in full force.
Reports have indicated the Bulls are willing to move a veteran like Joakim Noah or Luol Deng in order to make some noise in the draft. Still, one NBA expert doesn’t expect the Bulls to move from the 29th pick.
“It doesn’t seem like that,” Steve Kyler of Hoops World told The Mully and Hanley Show. “There’s been a lot of talk about Chicago trading Luol Deng or moving Joakim Noah – trying to do something super splashy in this draft. In talking to a number of executives in and around the Bulls themselves, they’ve just said, ‘Look, this is what you do. You always try to move up. You always try to see if someone holding one of those top three picks wants to part with it and is willing to do it for someone that you’re not as in love with long-term.’ That’s just part of the process.

“It just doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen. That No. 2 pick is still very much in play, but I don’t think the Chicago Bulls are going to be getting it.”
