The NBA Draft is two days away. You can expect some intrigue as we get closer to the event.

The Chicago Bulls own the seventh pick in the draft, and have been linked to a number of different prospects. There should be plenty of options there for them.

However, the Bulls reportedly don't want to stand pat. They may be eyeing a trade up.

According to NBCSports Chicago's Vincent Goodwill, the Bulls have asked around about moving up to the third or fourth spot in the draft.

Assuming Deandre Ayton and Marvin Bagley III are the first two players off the board, the Bulls could be looking at a multitude of highly-regarded prospects at No. 3 or No. 4 if they trade up.

Jaren Jackson Jr. could be there, as well as Mo Bamba and Luka Doncic. Additionally, if they covet someone like Michael Porter Jr. but are afraid he won't slip to No. 7, they could be trying to trade up to get him.

We'll find out soon enough. There seems to be a lot of uncertainty at the top of this draft, which should make for a wacky Thursday night.

The 2018 NBA Draft will be held Thursday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
