CHICAGO — The Chicago Bulls came up with three first-round picks in today's NBA draft by dealing 7-foot forward Brad Sellers to the Seattle SuperSonics.
The Bulls already had the No. 6 and No. 20 selections, then acquired the 18th first-round pick in return for the three-year veteran in Monday's deal.
Sellers, who averaged 8.2 points and 3.5 rebounds a game in his three years with the Bulls, started 25 games last season. He was eventually relegated to a backup role when Scottie Pippen returned from a back injury. In his final season with the Bulls, Sellers played in 80 games, averaging 6.9 points and 2.8 rebounds.
In Seattle, the SuperSonics today announced that they acquired Golden State's 16th pick in the draft by giving up their 1990 first-round draft pick to the Warriors
