Cavaliers Working On Multi-Team Trade For Jimmy Butler

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. What assets will Cleveland use to make a deal? Rumors are starting to fly that Danny Ainge and the Celtics are stockpiling draft picks in order to acquire a veteran superstar from another team and there have two targets in mind.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are targeting Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler according to reports.

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.

The 76ers turned down the deal and instead traded the pick in a package for No. 1 overall to draft Markelle Fultz on Thursday.

3 pick this year and a future first-round pick in either 2018 or 2019.

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.

If the Bulls part ways with Jimmy Butler, it certainly would indicate that their playoff experiment from the past season is being abruptly ended.

It's going to be an interesting few weeks between the draft and free agency. They also brought in center Robin Lopez, among other assets, in a trade with the New York Knicks.

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.

If Butler goes, it would be surprising to see Wade stick around on a team that won't be contending any time soon.

That doesn't mean teams will not try.
