Cavaliers and Timberwolves looking to acquire Jimmy Butler

Chicago Bulls 2017 Draft Preview

Jimmy Butler trade to Boston Celtics 'an unlikely scenario': Report

Smith then added that the "Celtics are planning on acquiring" Butler with the third pick if the Bulls are willing to make a deal similar to the one offered to the Sixers.

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.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are top dog in the NBA's Eastern Conference, but it's clear that the Boston Celtics plan on challenging them in the very near future.

The Jazz have a real shot at re-signing Hayward, who is also expected to draw interest from the Heat. Does adding Butler to the mix get them over the hump?

There's also no guarantee in this Age of LeBron that the Celtics aren't just stockpiling picks to build for the future while remaining relevant.

Correction: The dumbest thing someone could do would be to trade the No. 3 pick, Tyler Zeller and Jae Crowder to the Bulls for Jimmy Butler.

Russian Federation probe expands to include Kushner's business dealings
Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last month, citing the Russian Federation investigation as the reason. Jeannie Rhee , one of those attorneys, represented Hillary Clinton during her email scandal.

The Bulls aren't giving Butler away.

Butler is a 3x All-Star, made the 2017 All-NBA team, is a 3x All-Defensive team member, and won the 2014-15 Most Improved player award.

The Celtics may not be done wheeling and dealing ahead of Thursday's NBA Draft.

Yeah, we were ready for all the craziness of the National Basketball Association offseason, but not many people expected to be swimming through some Cavaliers-Jimmy Butler talk.

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.
