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.
With the No. 16 overall pick, the Bulls selected Justin Patton (C, Creighton), but he's headed to Minnesota as part of the Jimmy Butler trade. Patton is the fourth player ever drafted out of Creighton in the first round.
Jimmy Butler did not have a comment, when reached by ESPN, about the trade to Minnesota when reached in Paris. Found out from his agent Bernie Lee at about 2 a.m. local time.
