Back in 2014, the Bulls traded Luol Deng to the Cavs for Andrew Bynum (who was immediately released), two second-round picks and a heavily-protected first round pick from the Kings. That pick became a second-rounder when it didn't convey by 2017. The Bulls then used that pick, the 38th overall this year, to draft Jordan Bell - and immediately sold him to the Warriors.

Golden State Warriors were able to acquire Jordan Bell with the No. 38 pick from Chicago in exchange for cash, sources tell ESPN. The Warriors did not own a single pick prior.
