This trade is horrible for the Bulls. They basically gave up Butler and their pick to move up. Lavine is a dunk contest winner and thats basically it. Dunn is a bust


Somebody that should've stayed in school and developed a couple of skills....


He was actually really good offensively for a 2nd year player, 19ppg, he really developed. Shot almost 40% from 3, could get his own shot off the dribble well for a 2nd year SG. He looked like he was easily on his way to being a 23ppg player. The 'only a dunker' narrative was obliterated.. He really improved

For the record, that was his third year. He did improve, at least offensively. He's still a below average player.

Thanks for everything: Jimmy Butler buys sushi dinner for Bulls staffers


Jimmy Butler never had the greatest relationship with Bulls upper management. But his presence on the team and the lasting impression he left on the organization was felt on Sunday.

According to Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson, Butler treated a group of current Bulls staffers to a three-hour dinner at Katana, a new sushi restaurant in River North.

Butler, who was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves on draft night, was in town to attend Dwyane Wade's youth basketball camp in New Lenox over the weekend.

According to Johnson, Butler wanted to say "goodbye and thank you" to the staff, which included "behind-the-scenes staffers like salespeople and media relations officials and digital production staffers."
