Chicago Bulls: 3 potential consequences of trading Jimmy Butler

Chicago Bulls: 3 potential consequences of trading Jimmy Butler

The NBA Draft is days away and a wild, potentially franchise-changing week could be ahead for the Chicago Bulls.

"The Chicago Bulls were talking to the Philadelphia 76ers - they wanted the No. 3 overall pick and they were willing to unload Jimmy Butler", Smith said.

Friday, ESPN reported that the Celtics could be trading the No. 1 overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers for the No. 3 pick and a future first rounder. We know that the Cleveland Cavaliers need some help if they want to take down the Golden State Warriors, and we also know that the Chicago Bulls are ready to part ways with star guard Jimmy Butler for the right price tag. For the Celitcs, they're passing up on Washington's Markelle Fultz to maybe take Kansas' Josh Jackson, a player many believe is the best prospect in the draft.

Cruise generally relies more on box office legs, which with a 17% Rotten Tomatoes score and B- CinemaScore, this film won't have. The action-comedy Baywatch followed with an estimated $4.6M, down 47%, for a new total of $51.1M for Paramount.

The Boston Celtics just made a blockbuster trade to shake up this week's NBA Draft, but they have much bigger plans in mind and may be looking to make another. Smith said that is not quite a done deal, but it is said to be the Celtics' goal. But what, now that the Celtics have picked up what could be the 12th pick in the 2019 draft in order to move down two spots, they should suddenly be OK with moving their top pick for Butler? The Celtics have enough to put a competitive team on the floor as is without having to add a player of Butler's caliber. Zolak is happy that the Celtics are simply making moves to greatly improve the team.

So the Bulls must be very careful as to how they proceed for the rest of the week, if they're at all bothered by the noise.
