After numerous links to stars Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love, SportsIllustrated's Chris Mannix is now saying the Bulls are willing to deal their two first-round picks:

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.

The Bulls have the 16th and 19th picks in next week's NBA Draft.

If the Bulls do not deal their picks, Mannix projects they will select D-League guard P.J. Hairston and Clemson forward K.J. McDaniels in the draft.
