The Bulls continue to prepare for the June 23 draft by working out potential fits who might be available with the 14th pick, including Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine this week.

Posturing, meanwhile, will increase during the run-up to the draft, which is the NBA’s second-busiest time for trade talks behind the February trade deadline. And along those lines, ESPN.com reported Monday the Timberwolves are dangling the No. 5 pick in the hope of engaging the Bulls in talks for two-time All-Star Jimmy Butler.
