The Chicago Bulls find themselves at 19-19 on the season after 38 games and are currently in the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference. There have been highs and lows to start off the season for the Bulls but the one constant every night has been Jimmy Butler. The two-time NBA All-Star has elevated his game to Superstar level heights this season. Butler is averaging a career high 25.0 ppg per game as well as a career high in rebounds with 6.7.
Jimmy Butler is regarded around the league as one of the best two-way players in the league. Throughout the offseason there were rumblings around the league that Butler could be had for the right price. Those talks never festered into anything and Butler has started off this season on a tear. The Bulls organization has shot down all reports that Butler is available and with the team in the midst of a playoff push they would be wise to hold on to their superstar.
