PBT Extra: Jimmy Butler question still hangs over Chicago Bulls offseason

The Bulls have not made their offseason plans clear, but what they do with Jimmy Butler will have a ripple effect in the franchise.

John Paxson and Gar Forman will be back heading up the front office. Fred Hoiberg will be back as coach. Rajon Rondo almost certainly will be back at the point guard spot.

But will Jimmy Butler return next season in Chicago? Or will the Bulls move him?

That answer isn’t clear and hangs over the Bulls as they enter the offseason. The answer to that question is tied to the main one in Chicago: What kind of team are they trying to build, anyway? And if Dwyane Wade returns is certainly tied to the Butler question.

I get into all of it in this PBT Extra. Just don’t expect a lot of definitive answers, because I’m not sure if GarPax has them.
