The Bulls made one of the NBA offseason's biggest early moves by sending former league MVP Derrick Rose to the Knicks, and they almost sent away their second star player in Jimmy Butler. During the NBA Draft, reports were spreading that the Bulls were looking to trade the All-Star. Obviously no trade happened during the draft, but the rumors continue to circulate regarding Butler's status on the team. With the trade talks surrounding Butler, the Bulls forward appeared on ESPN programs Wednesday afternoon. On "The Jump" he spoke candidly about the Bulls front office and the moves they made, and may be considering making. "I can't say I was surprised. I knew it had to be one of us," Butler said about the Rose trade.
