Cavs, Suns, Timberwolves interested in trading for Jimmy Butler

Celtics Jimmy Butler Trade Rumors NBA

A report from Chicago Tribune noted that "as of Sunday, the talk (Jimmy Butler trade buzz) is based more on speculation than reality".

First, it was reported Monday the Boston Celtics have interest in flipping the No. 3 pick for the Bulls forward. But it also depends on how big of a role Butler would play in the lineup.

In next year's draft, they have their own pick, Brooklyn's first-round pick and the Lakers' first-round pick, if it falls between No. 2-5, according to The Vertical.

"The worst case scenario is they find themselves in a position to draft somebody like a Josh Jackson out of Kansas".

If the Celtics were to keep the number three pick in this year's draft, they have a number of great options to select from, but a veteran star may be better in the long run. In theory the Celtics have assets the Bulls would want to jumpstart a rebuild-multiple draft picks and existing talent they could ask for. Smith said that is not quite a done deal, but it is said to be the Celtics' goal. Cleveland has been working through Monday in an effort to secure Butler's services, as multiple teams around the league have made him a person of interest, especially heading into the National Basketball Association draft on Thursday night.

Draymond Green: I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland
Another eventful Game 4 of the NBA Finals for Draymond Green - even after it appeared he'd been ejected in this one. But then, out of nowhere, the officials changed the first tech to Steve Kerr, saying it had been that way all along.

The Boston Celtics are making moves.

.

Now, the Pelicans have never said anything about trading away their franchise player and it would likely take a mint to get them to part ways with Davis.

So the Bulls must be very careful as to how they proceed for the rest of the week, if they're at all bothered by the noise.

But just because it rings, it doesn't mean the Bulls have to kowtow or that they will; the status quo may not be sexy but it may be prudent.
