BullsHQ Ep. 41: The Butler Did It

BullsHQ is back for another season, and we’re talking…Wolves?

As news breaks of former Bull Jimmy Butler requesting a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, host Mark Karantzoulis (@mkhoops) is joined by Morten Jensen (@msjnba) to discuss the downfall of the TimberBulls.

On the show, the pair cover this news from all angles, wondering which team makes the most sense for Butler to be traded to (8:30), and if Butler is an ideal leader for any NBA franchise (26:25). Later, the Bulls trade of Butler 15 months is re-evaluated once more, and if the recent developments have changed the perception of the trade (32:25). Finally, playing ‘what if’, Mark and Morten wonder what could’ve been had the Bulls kept Butler with open max space to sign a free agent like Kyrie Irving instead of opting for a rebuild (44:58).
