  • Celtics Jimmy Butler Trade Rumors NBA

Right now, the speculation is running wild that the Celtics are looking to trade for Anthony Davis or Jimmy Butler. Not very much longer after Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Minnesota Timberwolves are trying to get in on the Butler sweepstakes, Marc Stein came swooping in with the bombshell that the Cavaliers have been doing their work to try and package something together with some teams to ultimately acquire his services in Cleveland. Smith then added that the "Celtics are planning on acquiring" Butler with the third pick if the Bulls are willing to make a deal similar to the one offered to the Sixers.

Friday, ESPN reported that the Celtics could be trading the No. 1 overall pick to the Philadelphia 76ers for the No. 3 pick and a future first rounder.

Supreme Court rules in favor of "offensive" copyrights
The National Football League team, which took the name Redskins in the 1930s, filed a legal challenge to a 2014 decision by a U.S. The band also hoped to trademark the name so they could protect themselves from fake merchandise and other products.

Jimmy Butler to Celtics: Will it finally happen this summer? He has two more years remaining on his contract before a 2019-20 player option, so he's not a rental, and he makes less than $20 million, which is a steal for a player of his caliber and easy to match in trades. Johnson adds that the Suns could be the third team in a Chicago-Cleveland trade for Butler.

The Jimmy Butler to Celtics trade chatter first gained traction during last year's NBA Draft night and once again gathered steam during February's NBA Trade Deadline. During the six-game playoff series against the Celtics, Butler averaged 22.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists. For the Celitcs, they're passing up on Washington's Markelle Fultz to maybe take Kansas' Josh Jackson, a player many believe is the best prospect in the draft.
