Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose did not work out together today

you all want to know about Tony Snell's whereabouts though? So, this was pretty funny: Jimmy Butler, Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson and Tony Snell are in L.A. training together with Travelle Gaines — Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) May 27, 2016 then... Correction: Butler and Snell are training now. Rose is in LA, will be working out next week, along with Gibson. Apologies for confusion — Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) May 27, 2016 Apology accepted! This has become a meaningless something that these guys work out together in the offseason. Not helped since Jimmy Butler volunteered...

Jimmy Butler talks leadership and his desire to stay with the Bulls

Jimmy Butler sat down with ESPN Chicago's Nick Friedell prior to Tuesday night's draft lottery. In an effort to showcase their love for Jimmy Butler, the Chicago Bulls sent the two-time All Star to New York City for the NBA Draft Lottery Tuesday night. And unsurprisingly, with only a 0.5% chance at the top pick, the draft lottery unfolded in the exact order for the first time in league history, as the Bulls claimed the 14th pick. While in New York, Butler sat down with ESPN Chicago's Nick Friedell to answer a wide-range of questions. The first question Friedell posed to Butler was his...

Bulls to send Jimmy Butler to the lottery, alleviating all trade concerns

OK... It might be time to hold off on those Jimmy Butler trade rumors. In a sign of commitment not present at management's season-ending postmortem, the Bulls have asked their two-time All-Star to represent the franchise on the dais at the May 17 NBA draft lottery, sources said. That's KC with the 'sign of commitment'. I mean, I suppose. There was mention of an earlier report where Butler is peeved at Gar Forman....but, honestly: who isn't? Gar seems like like the least personable boss one could ask for. The hoped reason a Butler trade is unlikely is because it's a bad idea, but the...

Jimmy Butler Trade Rumors Persist, but Bulls reportedly asking for a lot

Butler's name continues to swirl in connection to the Boston Celtics. According to a recent report by CSNNE.com's A. Sherrod Blakely (via CelticsBlog), the Bulls aren't yet closing off discussions for a trade involving Jimmy Butler.

After the season's final game back in April, Bulls management duo of Gar Forman and John Paxson didn't eliminate the possibility of a trade involving Butler, saying the following, which raised eyebrows: "I would say, I...

NBA trade rumor: Asking price for Jimmy Butler would be high

The Bulls start the public negotiations early. The Chicago Bulls are likely to look to shake up their roster this offseason.  They have a lot of pieces that don't fit anymore and some pieces that could be leaving via free agency anyway.  So many have opined that they might also consider putting star Jimmy Bulter on the block to jump start a full rebuild process. We don't know how much of this is truth and how much is negotiation spin, but the early word out of Chicago is that the price would be pretty steep for Butler. Celtics like Butler, but Bulls not making him easy to acquire |...
