Trade no. 1: Swap with Atlanta Hawks

In the first scenario, it all depends on which players fall to the Bulls at no. 7. The best available players would likely be Cam Reddish and Coby White. The Hawks already have their point guard situation under control with Trae Young, whom they drafted last year in the first round. But, with an opportunity to upgrade at the wing spot and nab Reddish, maybe the Bulls give them a ring.

The Hawks already have three second-round picks, at numbers 38, 41 and 44. If the Bulls can move back just one spot and acquire an additional draft pick in the process, this would be a massive win.

Again, in this case, the Bulls could be targeting White out of North Carolina. He will be the best point guard left on the board at that point, unless Darius Garland somehow falls — which is highly doubtful.

White could come in right away and start for the Bulls, giving them a solidified starting five. Meanwhile, the Hawks would either get Reddish or could have their pick from other lottery-level players like Jaxson Hayes, Nassir Little or Jarrett Culver. Again, this depends on how the first six picks shake out.
