The Time Is Right To Trade Jimmy Butler

Many thought the Bulls would move Jimmy Butler during the 2016 NBA draft due to his value and potential to bring in a combination of top picks and established players.
The Bulls inactivity led most to believe that it was time to build around Jimmy Butler going forward but then something happened.
1. The Bulls acquired Rajon Rondo. On the surface it would seem reasonable given the Derrick Rose trade and the need for a point guard.
However Rondo presents with a couple of challenges for Jimmy Butler since he is at equal points a ball dominating guard, a poor outside shooter and an alpha male in the locker room.
The trading of Derrick seemingly alleviated a leadership log jam between Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose so what do we do? We bring in an Alpha dog in Rajon Rondo.
Some had envisioned the Bulls becoming the Houston Rockets 2.0 featuring Jimmy and the shooters. Let’s see Butler 31.2% from the three, Rajon Ronda 36.5% from the three, could we be witnessing a shift from Hoi-ball (Bulls head coach Fred Hoiburg) to something else entirely different?
  And what does that mean for shooters Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic’ ?
 Well the Bulls could:
Trade Jimmy Butler to Boston for their # 3 pick which turned out to be Jaylen Brown from the University of California and two number one picks.
A possible starting line-up could be Rondo, Brown, Dunleavy, Gibson and Lopez.
Reserves ? Valentine, McDermott, Mirotic’, Calderon and Felicio.
Those moves would leave the Bulls flexible and competitive….As it stands now this team misses the playoffs again this year and the next.
Bulls fans, the iron is hot.
