Wait… I didn’t think Jimmy Butler was available?

When the Bulls shipped Derrick Rose to the Knicks, the natural assumption was that Chicago belonged to Jimmy Butler now. Maybe not: Orlando is one of several teams pursuing Jimmy Butler. Also, Houston is trying to get into the 1st round and is offering Patrick Beverley — Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) June 23, 2016 The Celtics [...]

Bulls send Derrick Rose to the Knicks

Bulls send Derrick Rose to the Knicks

Derrick Rose was once the league’s biggest phenom. He was so good the league basically created a mechanism that would throw transcendent talents like him even more than the most money possible. He was going to get a statue next to Jordan’s. He was going to lead the next Bulls resurgence. Then… his body broke [...]

If Cavs fold, expect a “Kevin Love auction”

If the Warriors continue with their thrashing of the Cavaliers (and I dare you to find someone who gives Cleveland a realistic shot), then the rebuilding of the Cavs will be a major story this off-season. As one league executive told Chris Mannix, Love will be the guy to go: No player entered this series with [...]
