Rumor Central: Jimmy Butler to Celtics still an unlikely scenario

Rumor Central: Jimmy Butler to Celtics still an unlikely scenario

It didn't take too long after The Finals ended for some National Basketball Association trade rumors to send social media into a frenzy with the reports of a potential deal with the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers that would revolve around the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

The trade market for Jimmy Butler is heating up.

In a tweet sent out by ESPN's Marc Stein late Monday afternoon, the report states that the Cleveland Cavaliers are working to acquire Chicago Bull's all-star Jimmy Butler. In the meantime, the Bulls are preparing for the draft, in which they own the 16th and 38th picks.

But trading away for the chance to draft Fultz is a risk Celtics GM Danny Ainge is willing to take-and it's calculated risks that's gotten him to this point, with assets on top of assets along with cap space and a roster that advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals last month. Smith said that is not quite a done deal, but it is said to be the Celtics' goal. But the Celtics are in position to take the long view because they can try to add a star without giving up assets, only money. Cleveland has been working through Monday in an effort to secure Butler's services, as multiple teams around the league have made him a person of interest, especially heading into the National Basketball Association draft on Thursday night.

While he may have an uneasy relationship with management and would prefer to be moved, the Bulls won't make a trade unless they get a big haul for him.

While no one knows where Butler will play next season, one thing is becoming clear - his time with the Bulls is probably over.
