Bulls will trade Jimmy Butler to Timberwolves

Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 21:48

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.

- Jimmy Butler is headed to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a blockbuster trade that materialized just minutes into Thursday night's NBA Draft.

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. Perhaps the return the Chicago Bulls received from the Minnesota Timberwolves was enough to have the Pacers wait things out.

Lauri Markkanen reacts after being selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves as the seventh pick overall during the NBA basketball draft, Thursday, June 22, 2017, in NY. The Bulls were trashed by National Basketball Association observers for a trade that could appear to heavily favor the Timberwolves. It appears that their new direction involves young players that they can invest in and build a future with. Dunn was a highly touted prospect coming out of Providence.

When Thibodeau was hired as team president and coach last summer, he quickly set his sights on bringing Butler to Minnesota.

The views on this page do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Basketball Association, its clubs or Turner Broadcasting.

"Whatever they want to call me, I don't even want to get into that anymore", he said. It's healed really well.

"They're both, to a large extent, people of substance", Lee said. "So that made my day, and I'm back getting ready to do what I do".

In LaVine, the Timberwolves surrender a rising star who established himself as one of the league's better young scorers. He has the ability to be an offensive star. 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.

The Lakers also exchanged picks with the Utah Jazz, who made another deal with the Denver Nuggets, while the Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers agreed on a two-for-one swap.

There are bad deals, then there are rotten deals.

What did you think of the Minnesota Timberwolves' draft? "They would come to the team".
