NBA trade deadline is about to end and there are numerous players who are on the trading block. We’ve heard about the case of Demarcus Cousins and Paul George. However, Jimmy Butler is headlining the trade rumors this week.
Jimmy Butler To The Cavaliers?
The multiple all-star from the Chicago Bulls were bombarded with questions during the All-Star Weekend. Jimmy Butler was asked on who he wants to play with and he did shock them with his answer. Apparently, Jimmy Butler is a big fan of Kyrie Irving. He considered him as his idol and if given the chance, he wants to play with Uncle Drew.
The problem is, Jimmy Butler is a high price player. If the Cleveland Cavaliers will go after him, they have to release one of their big three and surely that will not happen. The frontrunner right now in acquiring Jimmy Butler is the contender from the Eastern Conference, Boston Celtics. They have future drafts picks and players that can lure Butler in joining them. But the only problem is, both teams doesn’t seem too serious about the possibility.
Boston Celtics Not Rushing In Acquiring Butler
Danny Ainge, the executive of Boston Celtics made it clear already that he will not go for rent a player or band-aid players. He is willing to wait for the best options that the trade deadline would give him. Ainge has proven himself multiple occasions that he knows what he is doing. That’s the very reason why he won the Executive Of The Year Award last 2008.
Fans are now urging Ainge to make the move because they know that acquiring the All-Star will give them another go-to-guy which will surely help their roster. As for the Chicago Bulls, they are silently making their moves. It is fully documented that their roster is not intact. Even with the presence of NBA champions like Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo couldn’t help the falling franchise.
