Arron Afflalo averaged a career high 18.2 points for the Magic last season.

The Chicago Bulls are pursuing a trade for Orlando Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo, reports Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal would potentially include one of Chicago's first-round picks in the draft. The Bulls currently own the 16th and 19th overall picks.

According to Wojnarowski, Chicago has "shown a strong interest in moving one of their top picks in a deal and have been open to trading the 19th overall pick for a future first-round selection."

Afflalo, 28, is coming off the best offensive season of his career, averaging 18.2 points per game on 45.9 percent shooting. He is set to make $7.5 million next season and has a $7.75 million option for the 2015-16 season.
