  • NBA Draft: Bulls fans let out their frustrations during team's Facebook Live session

    The Chicago Bulls’ Facebook Live session went exactly the way you might think. When Facebook rolled out its live and reaction features back in 2016, the company hoped that users would have the ability to share their feelings about events in real time. Unfortunately for Chicago Bulls’ management, during the team’s official announcement of the draft day trade that sent star shooting guard Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves, fans took to FaceBook in droves to voice their displeasure over general manager Gar Forman’s decision to jettison the three time All-Star.

  • Jimmy Butler's trainer rips Chicago Bulls GM in tweet

    After the first few picks of Thursday night’s 2017 NBA draft went as expected, the huge trade that had been in the offing for weeks finally unfolded: Former Bulls forward Jimmy Butler is headed to the Timberwolves for Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine. The two franchises also exchanged first-rounders, with Chicago getting Lauri Markkanen at No. 7 and Minnesota receiving Justin Patton at No. 16. While the immediate aftermath of the trade had most Wolves fans ecstatic and most Bulls fans upset, no one was quite as outspoken as Butler’s personal trainer, Travelle Gaines.

  • AP Sources: Bulls trade Butler to Timberwolves

    The long-anticipated reunion between Jimmy Butler and Tom Thibodeau is on. Two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that the Chicago Bulls had traded three-time All-Star Jimmy Butler and the 16th overall pick Thursday night to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall pick. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal, first reported by the Chicago Tribune, had not been officially announced.

  • Bulls trade Butler to Minnesota Timberwolves, sources say

    Two people with knowledge of the situation tell The Associated Press that the Chicago Bulls have traded three-time All-Star Jimmy Butler and the 16th overall pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall draft pick. The people spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced. The trade means a reunion for Butler and Tom Thibodeau, who coached the Bulls for five seasons before being fired in 2015. Butler gives Thibodeau the tough-minded scorer and hard-nosed defender that he has been searching for to complement a promising young core. The Wolves paid a big price to land Butler. They gave up a rising star in LaVine,

    Already the 2017 NBA Draft has been crazy — the No. 1 pick was traded for only the seventh time in NBA history. The No. 2 pick from a couple years ago has already been moved to make way for the next No. 2 pick coming to Los Angeles.

  • Jimmy Butler goes to Wolves, as Bulls begin rebuild with draft night blockbuster

    Right as the Philadelphia 76ers were making the first pick in the 2017 NBA draft, the Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves were finalizing the first blockbuster deal of draft night. As first reported by ESPN’s Marc Stein and K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls have agreed in principle to send All-Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler and the No. 16 pick in Thursday’s NBA draft to the Wolves in exchange for the No. 7 pick, shooting guard Zach LaVine and point guard Kris Dunn, Minnesota’s first-round pick in last year’s draft.

  • Rumor: Add Denver Nuggets to list of teams talking to Bulls about Jimmy Butler

    The Denver Nuggets are starting to build something. Mike Malone has brought a needed new culture to the locker room, they have found a franchise cornerstone in Nikola Jokic and running the offense through him, and they have quality young pieces around him such as Gary Harris and Jamal Murray. The Nuggets just missed the playoffs last year, and they — and hopefully their defense — are poised to take a step forward next season.

  • Could LeBron James’s departure force Kyrie Irving out of Cleveland too?

    LeBron James’s status is uncertain past the summer of 2018. Perhaps Kyrie Irving’s is, too. Irving, the Australian-born point guard who finished second to James in scoring in the 2017 NBA Finals, is reportedly unhappy at the sudden organizational dysfunction within the Cavaliers organization. David Griffin, the Cavaliers’ general manager, left the franchise Monday after reported differences with owner Dan Gilbert over the direction of the team. According to the Chicago Sun Times, several Cavaliers players had been attempting to woo Jimmy Butler, the Chicago Bulls’ three-time All Star, to northeast Ohio as James seeks ways to dethrone the Golden State Warriors. But the Cavaliers’ attempts to build
