This is an interesting deal — one I think the Chicago Bulls should strongly consider.
Story going online now with @chadfordinsider: Wolves making No. 5 overall pick available in hopes of tempting Bulls into Jimmy Butler trade

The Minnesota Timberwolves are prepared to part with the No. 5 overall pick in this month’s draft, as the centerpiece of a trade package, if they can use it to construct a deal for Chicago Bulls star swingman Jimmy Butler, according to league sources.
Butler — an elite defender — would take immense pressure from Andrew Wiggins on both ends of the court — while providing the Wolves with elite athleticism on the wing and the two-guard position.
