The NBA rumor mill is swirling.
A Jimmy Butler x Tom Thibodeau reunion could be happening in Minnesota, as the Timberwolves are reportedly "strongly interested" in trading the #5 pick in exchange for Chicago's All-Star guard.
According to ESPN, the Bulls aren't actively looking to move Jimmy Buckets but that doesn't mean they aren't willing to field some offers. Sources claim Chicago would obviously need a top pick in the draft as well as a front line player if they were to truly consider such a deal, which means Minnesota might need to find a third team to make the deal work.
However, the Timberwolves aren't the only team vying for Butler's services.
The Boston Celtics, who have the #3 pick, are another team that is intrigued by the possibility of adding Butler to their roster. Furthermore, Chicago is reportedly very high on Providence's point guard, Kris Dunn, who will likely go in the 3-5 range in the June 23rd Draft.
Let's not forget, the Bulls still have a guy named Derrick Rose who they are allegedly "actively open" to moving instead of parting ways with Jimmy Butler.
