Jimmy Butler Has Been Traded To The Minnesota Timberwolves

The first major trade just happened.

Jimmy Butler was at the center of most of the trade-talk entering tonight's NBA Draft.

After several teams threw their hat in the ring, the Minnesota Timberwolves won out in the end.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Wolves traded NBA Dunk champ Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and the team's No. 7 overall pick in this year's draft to the Bulls for Butler.

The move brings Butler back to his former head coach Tom Thibodeau.
