Cavaliers want Jimmy Butler, but they're not alone

Celtics Jimmy Butler Trade Rumors NBA

Jimmy Butler to the Cavaliers seems like maybe the most unlikely of scenarios for him, but hey, there's a reason the National Basketball Association offseason is the craziest in all of sports. Here are the latest rumors ahead of the NBA Draft.

The entire National Basketball Association might be interested in trading for Chicago Bulls superstar Jimmy Butler by the end of the week.

Meanwhile, Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting that the three-time defending Eastern Conference champion Cavaliers are in the works to bring Butler to Cleveland.

According to ESPN's Stephen A Smith, the Bulls were willing to trade Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the No. 3 overall pick among other assets. But what, now that the Celtics have picked up what could be the 12th pick in the 2019 draft in order to move down two spots, they should suddenly be OK with moving their top pick for Butler?

According to Clutch Points, the Celtics are set on acquiring Jimmy Butler from the Bulls with the number three pick they acquired today. Kevin Love would likely be the player sent away from the Cavs to a third team in the deal. After agreeing to trade the No. 1 overall pick to the 76ers for the No. 3 pick and a future first-rounder with protections, the question now is what Danny Ainge will do with that third overall pick. With that in mind, they could offer the Bulls the sort of "rebuilding package" they might want for a player of Butler's caliber. Zolak is happy that the Celtics are simply making moves to greatly improve the team. That could mean that D-Wade also chooses a team to play for, which leaves the possibility open that he'll join his pal LeBron just like in their Miami days, in search of another National Basketball Association title.
