The NBA Draft is coming up on Thursday and the trade rumors are coming in hot and heavy. With the Celtics pulling off a trade for more future assets, some believe Boston is poised to pull off a blockbuster trade to acquire a star like Jimmy Butler.
But Butler could actually be heading elsewhere. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of the The Vertical, the Minnesota Timberwolves have already made contact with the Bulls about acquiring Butler in a trade.
If the Bulls are really interested in parting ways with Butler, Minnesota has plenty of assets to throw their way. The Wolves likely wouldn't want to get rid of Karl-Anthony Towns, but some combination of Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick in Thursday's draft could be an enticing package.
