Talkin' Prospects: Jahlil Okafor & Justise Winslow

A center who cannot be stopped down on the blocks? A two-way guard who doesn't need the ball in his hands to make an impact? Give. Give give give. Two of the big-name free agents Knick fans (and management) are salivating over this summer are Marc Gasol and Jimmy Butler. Gasol turns 30 next year and will command around $19M. Butler turns 26, and with a max deal will earn a shade under $16M. What if the Knicks drafted a 19-year old who'd grow into the next Gasol or Butler? And what if he only cost slightly more than they're paying Jason Smith? SB Nation college hoops guru Ricky O'Donnell...

How much is Mike Dunleavy's absence hurting Jimmy Butler?

Butler has regressed over the last two weeks, and some of that can be traced to the absence of Mike Dunleavy. Jimmy Butler was the apple of our eye for the first two months of the season. Butler was the Bulls' best player, a legitimate MVP candidate and a guy hurtling toward a max contract in the offseason. His improvement had Chicago looking like the favorite in the Eastern Conference, even without Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah playing at their best. But in the last two weeks since Butler missed the Jan. 3 game against the Celtics due to bereavement leave, we've seen a different player....

Celtics Notebook: Bulls’ Butler begins to make Marq

WALTHAM — Brad Stevens recently said that regardless of the NBA’s dependence on established stars, a new crop is forever emerging.A case in point is Bulls forward Jimmy Butler, who visits the Garden tonight in the midst of a breakout season. Butler always has been, in the words of Celtics forward Jae Crowder, his former Marquette teammate, “different than your normal guy, for sure.”

Jimmy Butler isn't going anywhere

Butler has played himself into a max deal in the summer, and I fully expect the Bulls to pay up. Jimmy Butler bet on himself and won. Instead of agreeing to a four-year contract extension with the Bulls in the offseason worth somewhere in the range of $11 million per year, Butler decided all that time he spent in the gym was going to pay off in the form of an even more lucrative contract in 2015. When Butler and the Bulls failed to reach an agreement on an extension, there was some angst that this would be the last year we would see him in a Bulls uniform. That angst has risen for some...

How Jimmy Butler and the Bulls shut down James Harden

It wasn't a one-man effort, but Butler's defense against the league's leading scorer was tremendous on Monday. Coming into Monday night's game between the Bulls and the Rockets, all eyes were going to be on the matchup on the wing between James Harden and Jimmy Butler. Harden and Butler may be the two best wings in basketball this season with LeBron James easing into a new situation in Cleveland and Kevin Durant consistently stuck battling injuries. Harden is No. 2 in the latest SB Nation MVP rankings (dropping tomorrow!) while Butler is No. 4. Harden entered this season as the consensus...

Rockets respect what Tomball product Jimmy Butler is doing with Bulls

• • • A season ago, the Rockets said Bulls center Joakim Noah should be the league’s defensive player months before he won the honor. This season, they stumped for guard Jimmy Butler, but not for Most Improved, which he might have already locked up, but for consideration for a considerably greater post-season award. “He […]

Howard: Butler should be in MVP convo

CHICAGO -- Houston Rockets All-Star Dwight Howard believes Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler should be in the MVP conversation. "Jimmy is, gosh, he should be up there in the MVP running," Howard said after Monday's shootaround, in advance of Monday's game against Butler and the Bulls. The gregarious big man chuckled as he made his point, almost not believing it himself, but in many ways the response echoed the sentiments of many within the NBA.

Bulls' Butler, Dunleavy out against Celtics

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls will be without two starters Saturday as small forward Mike Dunleavy and shooting guard Jimmy Butler won’t suit up against the Boston Celtics. Dunleavy, who jammed his right ankle in Thursday’s win over Denver, hadn’t missed a game since joining the Bulls before the 2013-14 season. Butler, who has played in 31 of 33 games this season, is out on bereavement leave. Butler’s absence puts more pressure on point guard Derrick Rose to carry the offense.

Butler proving to be a star in his own right

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Jimmy Butler fan club seems to grow larger every day. On Monday, before Butler was named the Eastern Conference player of the week again -- he won the Eastern Conference player of the month award in November -- Derrick Rose was the latest player to acknowledge the growth in Butler's game. "It's for real," Rose said of Butler's production. "I think he's a star now. A lot of you can say whatever you want to say, but he's got the right attitude for it.
