According to the Chicago Tribune, a source claims Chicago Bulls All-Star guard Jimmy Butler is expected to meet with management sometime next week. Butler is in Los Angeles working out, and at the end of June, he's scheduled to travel to Europe.

There have been rumors for more than a year that a rift exists between Butler and Bulls' executives Gar Forman and John Paxson. This meeting will allow Butler to give his opinions on how he feels the team should proceed moving forward.

"The thing with Jimmy is all of us would love to go out and get another a superstar player to go along with him," Paxson said last month. "But with the salaries we have, that's a difficult thing for us to manage. I respect very much Jimmy Butler's professionalism and how he goes about his job. I think the one thing we will do is continue to communicate with him."

Butler has been linked with the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and Minnesota Timberwolves for several months in the rumor mill. The Bulls continue to say they have no desire to move their top player but will take a prudent approach and listen to offers that come their way for Butler.
