Cavaliers want Jimmy Butler, but they're not alone

Cavaliers Rumors Kyrie Irving Could Demand Trade If Lebron James Opts Out of Contract

According to ESPN.com's Marc Stein, the Cleveland Cavaliers are working on potential trade proposals, with Stein adding the Cavs would likely need to involve a third or fourth team to finalize the deal.

We know a couple of things in this National Basketball Association offseason so far.

As that pertains to the Bulls, some have speculated that Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge wasn't done maneuvering and instead trying to strengthen his team's position to make a run at Butler.




The Boston Celtics also have a longstanding interest in Butler and potentially possess seven first-round picks in the next three drafts to pitch to the Bulls after Boston's trade with Philadelphia on Monday that swapped the Nos. The latest speculation is that the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavs are both trying to make a deal with the Chicago Bulls for All-Star #Jimmy Butler.

Enter the Celtics, who then chose to move back two spots to No. 3 and acquire an additional future first-round pick in the process. "They don't know if they'll be able to, but their hope is that they'll be able to use the No. 3 pick, get themselves Jimmy Butler, go into free agency and get Gordon Hayward". But what, now that the Celtics have picked up what could be the 12th pick in the 2019 draft in order to move down two spots, they should suddenly be OK with moving their top pick for Butler? "Every time the Celtics get more assets - because the teams have talked, once substantively, that was last June, and then once less so in February - that (storyline starts up that) they're coming for him".
