The camp of Jimmy Butler expects him to remain with the Chicago Bulls through Thursday’s trade deadline.
The Bulls and Boston Celtics haven’t held substantive talks about Butler since June when they discussed a trade centered around the draft rights to Kris Dunn.
“I can’t worry about that. It don’t bother or scare me none. I’ll be OK,” Butler told reporters in New Orleans late Sunday after the All-Star Game. “Not saying I’m untradable, but I don’t think about that. Hopefully, I’m not going to get traded, but I don’t control that.”
Butler could eventually command a supermax extension if he remains with the Bulls.
The Celtics have been underwhelmed by all preliminary offers for their main future assets.
