Could a Jimmy Butler, DAngelo Russell trade be in the works?

Could a Jimmy Butler, DAngelo Russell trade be in the works?

Theres a scenario in play that suggests the Chicago Bulls could move All-Star guard Jimmy Butler this upcoming summer. He was bandied about as bait during Februarys trade deadline. But in the end, Chicago decided to keep its star guard en route to earning a trip to the playoffs.

Now that an otherwise disappointing 2016-17 season has come to a conclusion, it looks like Butler himself wants to know what the Bulls plans are before deciding whether to stick around.

Butler is set to meet with Chicagos brass to discuss what the team is looking to do this summer. Per the report, Butler wants all the cards to be on the table during said meeting.

There were in-season rumors linking Butler to the Boston Celtics. Those might be ratcheted up a bit more now that Boston earned the No. 1 pick (via Brooklyn) in the 2017 NBA Draft on Tuesday.

For his part, Butler doesnt have a huge amount of leverage should he decide he wants out of dodge. The 27-year-old guard signed a five-year extension with Chicago back in July of 2015. He cant opt out of said contract until following the 2019-20 campaign.
