Cavaliers, Celtics Suns, Timberwolves Reportedly Exploring Jimmy Butler Trade

Zolak is happy that the Celtics are simply making moves to greatly improve the team.

The Boston Celtics just made a blockbuster trade to shake up this week's NBA Draft, but they have much bigger plans in mind and may be looking to make another.

As that pertains to the Bulls, some have speculated that Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge wasn't done maneuvering and instead trying to strengthen his team's position to make a run at Butler. "But their hope is to use the No. 3 pick [to] get themselves Jimmy Butler".

Think of it this way: If you polled a bunch of Celtics fans week ago asking if they'd trade the first overall pick as part of a package including Crowder for Butler, nobody would say it.

Then again, if the C's add Butler and either Blake Griffin and Gordon Hayward, the C's could actually give the Cavs a series.

The Philadelphia 76ers could have acquired Jimmy Butler, according to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith.

So what would be the potential consequences of trading away Butler?

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune recently polled three general managers on the prospects of a potential Jimmy Butler deal to Boston.

At that time, the Bulls remained consistent in their message to Butler: We value you and want to build with you but must listen to any offers we receive out of due diligence.

While he may have an uneasy relationship with management and would prefer to be moved, the Bulls won't make a trade unless they get a big haul for him. In the meantime, the Bulls are preparing for the draft, in which they own the 16th and 38th picks.
