Until the day comes that he's wearing another uniform — and not a Marquette jersey — Jimmy Butler's name will be involved in an abundance of trade rumors.
Over the past two seasons, the Bulls All-Star swingman has been linked to the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, in addition to other clubs.
With the NBA Draft less than a month away and the start of free agency kicking off just a few days after the draft concludes, the rumor mill will begin to churn with a countless number of Butler rumors.
Following the Golden State Warriors victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, Butler was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live which takes place in Los Angeles — the home of the team that's rumored to have a keen eye for Butler.
"Why aren't you coming to the Lakers?" Kimmel asked Butler.
"Because I love Chicago so very much," Butler proclaimed. "They took a chance at me in 2011 with the 30th pick so I'm forever grateful for that."https://twitter.com/_MarcusD2_/status/870507837167816705
Even Kimmel, an avid Lakers fan, thinks Butler should stay in Chicago and discussed why it's important for a player to stay with the same team throughout an entire career.
