The smart money is still on Jimmy Butler starting next season as a Chicago Bull, mostly because Chicago is asking the world for him in a trade.

The Cavaliers and Timberwolves are reportedly among the teams trying to acquire the All-Star forward from the Bulls.

Yeah, we were ready for all the craziness of the National Basketball Association offseason, but not many people expected to be swimming through some Cavaliers-Jimmy Butler talk.

ESPN's Mark Stein, citing league sources, is tweeting that the Cavaliers are trying to craft a deal involving three teams in their push to acquire Butler. Scott Zolak admitted he gets much more excited about established players like Butler than future draft picks, even though Butler underperformed for the Bulls in their playoff series loss to the Celtics.

Smith said the Celtics believe they "have a better shot than anybody" at getting Hayward to come to Boston, as the Utah Jazz star played for Brad Stevens in college at Butler. Butler is expected to decline his 2019-20 player option, so he can join the 2019 free-agent market.

At the moment, Butler has two more years left on his contract with the Bulls. His name first became the subject of trade speculation around the February trade deadline.

In 76 games this past National Basketball Association season, Butler average 23.9 points per game, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.5 assists a game.

Between holding the No. 16 and No. 32 draft picks, deciding whether or not to re-sign Rajon Rondo, and waiting to see if Dwyane Wade sticks around... this summer is sure to yield plenty of change.
