Celtics Back In On Jimmy Butler?

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reported the Phoenix Suns could be the third team in a multi-club trade involving the Cavs.

The Chicago Bulls have been taking offers for Jimmy Butler since last offseason, but have yet to pull the trigger on a potential trade.

The Boston Celtics have agreed to trade the No. 1 overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers, and that deal is reportedly just the first step in a series of blockbuster moves Danny Ainge is hoping to make.

According to Clutch Points, the Celtics are set on acquiring Jimmy Butler from the Bulls with the number three pick they acquired today.

"The Chicago Bulls were talking to the Philadelphia 76ers - they wanted the No. 3 overall pick and they were willing to unload Jimmy Butler", Smith said. Then, ESPN's Marc Stein and The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday afternoon a few new teams that have entered the fray to acquire Butler, including the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"Jimmy Butler, as a piece, is not a bad idea". Butler is expected to opt out of the final year of his contract to capitalise on the NBA's rising salary cap. His name first became the subject of trade speculation around the February trade deadline.

In 76 games this past National Basketball Association season, Butler average 23.9 points per game, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.5 assists a game. For the Celitcs, they're passing up on Washington's Markelle Fultz to maybe take Kansas' Josh Jackson, a player many believe is the best prospect in the draft.
