Rumor Central: Jimmy Butler to Celtics still an unlikely scenario

  • The Celtics Could Be Gearing Up To Make A Run At Jimmy Butler

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

Think of it this way: If you polled a bunch of Celtics fans week ago asking if they'd trade the first overall pick as part of a package including Crowder for Butler, nobody would say it.

Many have drawn a straight line from the Celtics' activity to the Bulls, as they have coveted Butler since Butler has ascended to stardom.

It's instructional to remember that when the Celtics and Bulls briefly re-engaged in talks centered on Butler in February, they were far less serious than those held last June.

First, it was reported Monday the Boston Celtics have interest in flipping the No. 3 pick for the Bulls forward.

Assuming the deal would go down, the 76ers would be expected to take Washington guard Markelle Fultz with the pick acquired in the deal and the Celtics would have more picks to put in a deal for a potential star to get them over the hump in the Eastern Conference.

So what would be the potential consequences of trading away Butler? He has been a member of the Chicago franchise since it selected him 30th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft out of Marquette, seeing his scoring average increase each year.

At that time, the Bulls remained consistent in their message to Butler: We value you and want to build with you but must listen to any offers we receive out of due diligence.

In next year's draft, they have their own pick, Brooklyn's first-round pick and the Lakers' first-round pick, if it falls between No. 2-5, according to The Vertical.
