Jimmy Butler never had the greatest relationship with Bulls upper management. But his presence on the team and the lasting impression he left on the organization was felt on Sunday.
According to Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson, Butler treated a group of current Bulls staffers to a three-hour dinner at Katana, a new sushi restaurant in River North.
Butler, who was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves on draft night, was in town to attend Dwyane Wade's youth basketball camp in New Lenox over the weekend.
According to Johnson, Butler wanted to say "goodbye and thank you" to the staff, which included "behind-the-scenes staffers like salespeople and media relations officials and digital production staffers."
