|Bulls Take UCLA's Lee in Second Round
|CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls have selected UCLA guard Malcolm Lee in the second round of the draft with the 43rd pick and are expected to trade him to Minnesota.
Several reports have the Bulls trading their rights to Lee and No. 28 pick Norris Cole of Cleveland State to the Timberwolves. Minnesota in turn agreed to send Cole to the Miami Heat, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press.
UCLA's athletic department, meanwhile, posted a message on Twitter congratulating Lee on joining former Bruin Kevin Love in Minnesota.
The 6-foot-5 Lee averaged 13.1 points as a junior last season and was first-team, All-Pac-10 and made the conference's all-defensive team.
