The Chicago Bulls will have a healthy Derrick Rose back next season, along with the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Joakim Noah, and will no doubt be looking to make a run at the Eastern Conference title. Not to mention, they’re also in play for one of the top free agents in Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James.
One thing that they could also use is a staunch sharpshooter, and they might be willing to make a deal Thursday night in the NBA Draft. According to Draft Express, the Bulls are looking to package their no. 16 and no. 19 picks to potentially get into the top 10 to select one of the two best shooters in this group, either Nik Stauskas or Doug McDermott.
Chicago trying hard to package picks 16 and 19 and move up to the 9-11 range. Seem to be targeting Doug McDermott or Nik Stauskas there.

Both of these players, considering what the Bulls will have back next season, as well as what they could have in either James or Anthony joining them, would provide a tremendous boost to one of the best squads in the NBA and provide an extra spark, especially on the offensive end of the court.
To get one of them, though, they will more than likely have to pull this deal off as neither of these two could be available at 16 or 19.
