The 2014 NBA draft lottery takes place tonight and although the Chicago Bulls do not possess any of the ping-pong balls, they could still have an impact on the early picks when the draft takes place.

Chicago currently hold their own 19th overall pick and Charlotte's 16th overall pick but according to the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls do not plan to use both of those selections.

The Tribune reports: "I’d say the one scenario I don’t see happening is the Bulls simply adding two rookies. I think they will try to package the two picks to move up, trade one or both picks or, at the very least, draft one and stash the second pick overseas in Europe.”

A lot has been made of this draft class, it was hyped to include future All-Stars, Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins among a deep first round draft class. 

However, many analysts believe that is not what we'll se from this group of college players and if you want a productive player you better be drafting early.

The Bulls have been linked with a number of possible star free agents this summer such as Kevin Love and Carmelo Anthony to play alongside an injury plagued Derrick Rose. However it may be just as likely to see one of the top rookies or a productive shooter brought in as the missing piece in Chicago.

Who do you think the Bulls should draft? Let us know in the comments.
