Reports: Jimmy Butler Is On The Trading Block


According to Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher, The Chicago Bulls have begun shopping Jimmy Butler, making him available for a trade.  Bucher reports:

“League sources say the team made it known weeks ago through back channels that shooting guard Jimmy Butler is available for the right price.  Did his recent 52 point game against the Hornets change the team’s thinking? Not likely.  League sources say the Bulls have been uncertain about building around Butler even after signing him to a 5 year, $95 million extension.”

It’s hard to believe that Butler is on the trading block, after his recent performances.  Butler is having one of his best seasons of his career, despite the Bulls being 8th in the Eastern Conference standings.  He is averaging 25 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assist per game.

This season is going down hill for the Bulls.  Earlier this week, rumors surfaced of Rajon Rondo being put on the trading block after being benched.  Rondo has made it known that he will demand a trade if he continues to sit the bench.

We could only assume that the Bulls are beginning to rebuild for the future.
