(CBS) With the 16th and 19th picks in the first round of late June’s NBA Draft, the Bulls have a variety of options at their fingertips.

They could look for a sharp-shooting swingman and a reserve post player. They could draft the two best 3-point shooters available after struggling to stretch the floor last season. They could package the picks as part of a deal for a proven commodity, perhaps even a star like the Timberwolves’ Kevin Love. They could package the two picks to move up in the draft. They could use one to stash a player in Europe for a few seasons. They could take a big gamble on upside with one selection.

So for now, it’s still difficult to pinpoint the direction Chicago may go. Nevertheless, that doesn’t make mock drafts any less entertaining because, after all, where would we sports fans be without mock drafts?

With the draft order now set — at least until the next trade — here’s a look a who a trio of CBSSports.com national basketball writers have the Bulls doing with their two picks. Click here to view the CBSSports.com full mock draft.
