People Are Convinced The Celtics Are About To Trade For Jimmy Butler

Is a huge NBA trade about to happen?

Jimmy Butler has been linked to the Boston Celtics since the NBA's trade deadline this past season.

The Celtics and Bulls weren't able to work something out then, but it looks like they might be able to now.

With Boston trading the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft to Philadelphia, Danny Ainge seems to be stockpiling as many good draft picks as possible.

Why would he be doing that?

Maybe so he can finally make a trade for one of the league's best players in Butler. The Bulls have said that in order for them to make a move, they'd need several future high draft picks. Boston has those.

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said people around the NBA are convinced Boston got this trade with Philadelphia done early so they could have more time to maneuver, too.

Stay tuned.
