The NBA draft starts in about 30 minutes.

We've been tracking rumors all day, and while nothing major has happened since this morning (including with Kevin Love) there has been some involving the Bulls, with a consensus being that they're looking to trade up.

There seems to be a general sense that there's no way the Bulls keep both picks, whether that is 'achieved' through trading up, trading out, or drafting some Eurostash.

This is supposedly a deep draft though, and the roster isn't nearly full enough to worry about not having spots. Make sure you check out Ricky's final big board for the Bulls.

We'll be back when moves are made.
