Butler trade right move for the Timberwolves


Jimmy Butler opened up about being traded by the Chicago Bulls on Thursday to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Bulls better hope they hit on at least one, otherwise they're looking at a potential sixth man who can score and not provide much else, along with a rotation player, respectively.

It was a tough blow for Bulls fans, but Butler has an important message to share: "Chicago, I love you".

Chicago traded Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves on draft night, and I assume it's to start their rebuild. And yet the Bulls were only able to get Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine, and the seventh pick (in exchange for the 16th) in last night's draft.

Another view: Senate health bill is a travesty
Trump didn't indicate what types of changes may be in store, but affirmed that he had described a US House-passed bill as "mean". More Democratic states, he said, could try single-payer systems while conservative states could bolster health savings accounts.


As of Monday morning, the Timberwovles have yet to set an official introductory news conference to introduce Butler as the newest member of the team.

"We all know how I feel about him, and what he's done for me and my career", Butler said.

"Our goal is to get to the championship, but we know we have to make one big huge step to getting into the playoffs and hopefully a home-court advantage type of position so that you have a chance", Taylor said. It holds true, though, that back in May, he said things about being an "open-minded" person and that he would accept whatever scenario he would come to face in Chicago.

Butler didn't want to get into that, only saying, "I gave all to that city and to that team". Pick nearly any combination of draft picks and Celtics players out of a hat, and you'll end up with a better package than what the Bulls got from Minnesota. One more all-league selection within the next two seasons would have qualified him for a designated-player exception under the new collective bargaining agreement. "I know his style of play, and I feel like I'll fit in with that core that they have over there".

The fans with the most right to be angry are in Boston, where the Celtics were linked with Butler since the trade deadline, and last night were reportedly trying to swing a trade for Paul George. A year ago on draft night there were reports from ESPN's Mark Stein that the Timberwolves attempted to offer a similar deal for Butler. If it appears that the Bulls team got a whole lot younger overnight, that is just what happened. "If we can do that to the best of our abilities we're going to win some games". The duo spent four seasons together in Chicago before Thibodeau was sacked by the Bulls in 2015. It's okay, Jimmy, we didn't understand the trade on the Bulls' part, either. "I think it's a good deal for both sides".

Butler's rookie campaign came in 2011-12, a lockout-shortened season, meaning coaches hardly had any time to work with players.

Donald Trump calls Russian Federation probe 'greatest witch-hunt in American history'
The president complained the probe is unfair and wondered why his defeated Democratic opponent wasn't getting the same scrutiny. The Post reported that Mueller and his team are interviewing senior intelligence officials about Trump's role.


The first things they should do is immediately cut ties with Brandon Rush, Omri Casspi and Adreian Payne.
