Cavaliers join teams in on Jimmy Butler

The Celtics Could Be Gearing Up To Make A Run At Jimmy Butler

Or, nothing will happen and the status quo will remain so.

The entire National Basketball Association might be interested in trading for Chicago Bulls superstar Jimmy Butler by the end of the week. At that time, the Celtics refused to offer their first-round pick from the Nets - the one that, via the May draft lottery, became this No. 1 pick about to be traded to the 76ers - without protections on it. In the meantime, the Bulls are preparing for the draft, in which they own the 16th and 38th picks.

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.

"The Boston Celtics are planning on acquiring Jimmy Butler", Smith added. 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.

The trade market for Jimmy Butler is heating up.

Cleveland also reportedly has discussed a trade with the Indiana Pacers centered around superstar forward Paul George.

It's easy to fantasize but it's clear Ainge is taking the long play here, wanting to be in prime position to take over the East when LeBron James declines, retires or departs to Los Angeles, as has been rumored.

The Bulls aren't giving Butler away.

And the possibility of selecting in the top five of the draft for the next couple years would be intriguing to a front office that's stated the difficulty in selecting in the middle of the first round and finding productive players.

"The Chicago Bulls were talking to the Philadelphia 76ers - they wanted the No. 3 overall pick and they were willing to unload Jimmy Butler", Smith said.

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. "They don't know if they'll be able to, but their hope is that they'll be able to use the No. 3 pick, get themselves Jimmy Butler, go into free agency and get Gordon Hayward".
