Before the start of the 2017-18 nba season the bulls trades Jimmy Butler to the Timberwolves for a package that included Zach Lavine, Kris Dunn, and the 7th pick Lauri Markkanen. At the time it looked life the Timberwolves committed highway robbery, Dunn hadn’t looked good and Lavine was rehabbing a torn acl. Butler was an all star and one of the best players in the league. He helped lead the Timberwolves to their first playoff berth since 2004. Butler and his teammates did not get along at all and stories were breaking of him not liking his teammates. He was recently traded to the 76ers for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, and a 2022 second round pick. Looking back it is safe to say that the Timberwolves won the trade short term, but the Bulls smoked them in the long run and got three good, young players.
