During last night's NBA Draft, the Chicago Bulls traded Jimmy Butler and the #16 pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the 7th overall pick.

Butler, who spent his first six seasons in Chicago including three All-Star selections, will now be reunited with his old coach Tom Thibodeau as part of a young Wolves squad starring Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns.

Jimmy's trainer had some harsh words for Bulls GM Gar Forman immediately after the trade was announced, but Butler finds himself in a much better basketball situation now with the Wolves' young core.

After allowing the move to settle in, Butler has taken to instagram today to thank the city of Chicago, the entire Bulls organization and their fans.

"I truly struggle with the words because you've been so much more than just my home for the last 6 years, you've been my life!"

"You always pushed me to never give anything less than my absolute best night in, night out. That's what you expected. That's what you deserved. And, I hope you know that's what I dedicated my life to every time I walked into the facility or stepped on the floor of the United Center."

Chicago, What can I say?! I truly struggle with the words because you've been so much more than just my home for the last 6 years, you've been my life! You've embraced me like a son and pushed me to get better every day, every season. I can honestly say that I have always been incredibly motivated to succeed; it's just the way I'm built. But I know I owe so much to the person I am now, and to the player that I've become, to you. You always pushed me to never give anything less than my absolute best night in, night out. That's what you expected. That's what you deserved. And, I hope you know that's what I dedicated my life to every time I walked into the facility or stepped on the floor of the United Center. Thank you to the entire Bulls organization and Reinsdorf Family for taking a chance on me in 2011 and for giving me the opportunity to play the sport I love for such a great franchise. I'll never forget the feeling I had when I was drafted and when I played my first minutes. It's an experience that I wouldn't have wanted with any other team and I'm so thankful to you for giving me that opportunity. Chicago, I love you. Thanks for embracing a kid from Tomball like one of your own. On to a new home and a new organization. Thankfully, with some familiar faces! PS... AND PROBABLY MOST IMPORTANT! THANK YOU TO EVERYBODY BEHIND THE ORGANIZATION THAT DO NOT GET THE SHINE THAT THEY DESERVE!! YALL ARE THE REAL ALL-STARS!! - Jimmy G. Buckets (@staceyking21 )
