Cleveland Cavaliers: Paul George or Jimmy Butler? Who Is The Best Fit For The Cavs?

Cleveland Cavaliers' reported pursuit of Jimmy Butler, Paul George won't involve Griffin

According to ESPN's Stephen A Smith, the Bulls were willing to trade Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the No. 3 overall pick among other assets.

In the deal between the Celtics and Sixers, Boston received the No. 3 pick in this year's draft and the Lakers' 2018 first-round pick.

In a tweet sent out by ESPN's Marc Stein late Monday afternoon, the report states that the Cleveland Cavaliers are working to acquire Chicago Bull's all-star Jimmy Butler. If Butler were to remain in Chicago, the Celtics are expected to draft either Kansas wing Josh Jackson or Duke forward Jayson Tatum with the No. 3 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. 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? "Philadelphia in turn said, 'Hey, we don't want Jimmy Butler". They have built a talented young core around former No. 1 draft picks Karl Anthony-Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

Floyd Mayweather makes first statement following Conor McGregor fight announcement
White on if this will break the PPV record: "I think this breaks the record in USA , the UK, Australia and Canada, too". Indeed, he would likely be heavily favored over Mayweather had the two made a decision to do the fight under UFC rules.

Smith said the Celtics believe they "have a better shot than anybody" at getting Hayward to come to Boston, as the Utah Jazz star played for Brad Stevens in college at Butler.

But who knows if the Bulls have an actual desire to trade Butler, as players of his caliber are hard to come by and consistently drafting high doesn't guarantee anything in the way of the future-anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of the National Basketball Association knows that. If nothing else, they know how Ainge operates and he's loving every second of this predraft madness.
