Butler spoke to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times about being the face of the Bulls franchise.
That's before the possibility of Minnesota going out and spending big in free agency next month, where it could target Hawks all-star power forward Paul Millsap to round out what suddenly would be a formidable starting lineup.
Depending on your assessment of Lauri Markkanen as a prospect, you could easily criticise the Bulls for how they used that No7 pick.
The beginning of the 2017 NBA Draft on Thursday night didn't feature many surprises as far as picks were concerned.
After Jimmy Butler was traded by the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, many pundits penned pieces about how the face of the franchise had once again been dealt away, but the forward was having none of it.
With Butler on the Wolves, though, McCollum - and the Blazers - will now have a 3x All-Defensive team wing to pester them for four games a year, as well as compete with for a playoff spot.

As of right now, LaVine is the one who makes the most sense. LaVine's shortcomings are on defense, which can be crafted as he continues to rehab. "Hopefully, when you ask me the question about how good we're going to be, part of it will probably be in what other players might be attracted to this team". The jury is still out on him as a defender and rebounder. The three-time All-Star will reunite with Thibodeau, his former Bulls coach, who is known for running a tight ship. That might be true, but you have to wonder why Gaines is meeting so many drug dealers.
