Jimmy Butler plans to pursue shorter-term offer sheets

That is one way for Butler to try to get away from Chicago: short term deal with an opt-out that lets him be unrestricted.

The Bulls have a slight amount of leverage:

Jimmy Butler Can't Sign Deal With 2017 Opt-Out If Bulls Give Him Max Qualifying Offer

But if they do that, Butler might go hardball and just take the one year qualifying offer and walk after 2016.

Ryen Russillo’s NBA Draft Confidential: Real Scouts on Towns, Russell, and Okafor

The piece hits a lot of the things that worry me about Okafor, and adds some new ones. The Sullinger comment is fucking brutal.

I hope that he wows the Wolves and they take him. If not, I hope that someone else wows the Lakers and we have the balls to take someone else. As a fallback if we do take him, I pray that he get inspired and someone manipulates the hell out of him to get his all around game and focus together.

There were reports of this during the Cav's slide in the regular season, as well. I wouldnt be surprised if Blatt is on the hot seat in the next few years.

As mentioned in the Lakers thread, lots of stuff going around about Aldridge's status in Portland. There also were some items about Love potentially going to Portland if Aldridge leaves, given Love being a PacNorthWest guy. Love is 3 years younger than Aldridge...

Any insight in what the heck is going on with the Blazers, Rian?

Luke Ridnour just joined his fourth team (and counting) in a 24-hour span

This is a riot. :)

The Kings are such a mess:

Kings owner Vivek Ranadive “frustrated” with George Karl’s lobbying for DeMarcus Cousins trade

Then there's the other mess:

Knicks trying to trade down from No. 4 pick, move back in lottery

Deadspin's take:

The Kings Are Such A Mess Right Now

Quote:
The increasingly emerging best option is to fire George Karl into the sun. Or at least just fire him.

Karl’s deal reportedly runs three more seasons, all guaranteed save the last, with a $1.5 million buyout clause. It would cost the Kings $9.75 million to tell him to get the fuck out right this second. I don’t see how that’s not a bargain.

LaMarcus Aldridge told Trail Blazers he will not be back as a free agent

The Blazers can pay him more than anyone else, so it's likely this is about chasing a title. Spurs are probably Option #1. Lakers may be Option #2, depending on the sales job we can toss at him. Rockets are always in play for guys like Love and LMA.
