Trade Rumors: Butler, LaVine, Russell, Gay

The Bulls and Celtics are still discussing a deal involving Jimmy Butler, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. Chicago, which traded Derrick Rose to the Knicks on Wednesday, reportedly wants to draft Providence point guard Kris Dunn, but isn’t enamored with Boston’s latest offer, according to K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune (Twitter link).

More trade rumors are heating up as the draft is under way:

  • Another deal the Bulls received came from the Timberwolves, who offered the fifth pick and Zach LaVine, tweets Ian Begley of ESPN.com. Minnesota is willing to listen to offers for anyone besides Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns, tweets Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities, but he doesn’t believe that offer will be enough to land Butler.
  • The Kings have been “heavily engaged in trade talks” with several teams this week and are targeting Lakers‘ point guard D’Angelo Russell, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN. Sacramento is seeking a possible replacement for starting point guard Rajon Rondo, who is headed toward free agency.
  • Before picking up Thaddeus Young in a deal with the Nets today, the Pacers talked to the Kings about Rudy Gay, according to Wojnarowski.

Please…. Don’t trade Russell to the Kings. Especially if it’s for Hield. He’s a bust.

They want THIS year’s pick for Dunn, wouldn’t make sense asking for next year’s (when MIN should be much improved) instead.

Yes, they would. I don’t really think the Wolves have the pieces to get Butler (outside of Wiggins and KAT obviously). LaVine and Dunn would be a solid start, but the Bulls would want more. Maybe someone like Dieng, but even then, I still don’t see it being enough. And their pick next year won’t have much value. I don’t see anything coming to fruition.
