Midday Stampede: Bulls Roster Questions Remain on Eve of Draft

It's unclear what the Bulls will do with their roster in the hours leading up to the NBA Draft

Thursday could be a big day for professional basketball in Chicago or it could be an uneventful one, too.

Nobody knows what the Bulls brain trust is thinking in the hours leading up to the NBA Draft. Will Luol Deng and maybe even Joakim Noah be traded away? Or will the current Bulls roster as we know it stay the same?

Teams such as the Houston Rockets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Milwaukee Bucks and the Charlotte Bobcats have been active and made trades prior to the draft, but the Bulls seem to be more in exploratory mode as opposed to pulling the trigger on a blockbuster deal.

Some want the front office to go for the home run, while others would like them to be conservative and keep things the way they considering the Eastern Conference will be much weaker than it has been in recent years and the team should be good enough to make the playoffs once again even with Derrick Rose missing a majority of the season.

We'll find out what the Bulls want to do over the next 24 hours, but if they do nothing, fans shouldn't be surprised.
