Jimmy Butler, the Chicago Bulls star has been the talk of NBA trade rumors, but today it is official that Butler will go to the Minnesota Timberwolves and be reunited with his former coach Tom Thibodeau. He heads to Minnesota to join Towns, Rubio, Wiggins and more.

The Timberwolves recently entered the Bulter trade rumors. The team is very eager to get Butler is the Celtics. However, the Timberwolves pulled it off and get a superstar in the trade.

Advantage to Timberwolves

The Timberwolves managed to acquire the three-time All-Star Jimmy Butler despite all the teams that were persistent in trying to get him.

This does show how Butler respects his relationship to the former coach Tom Thibodeau and is willing to play for him again. Thibodeau after being selected as the team president and coach last summer was vocal on bringing Butler on the Timberwolves. They almost had Butler last year for Dunn and LaVine but the deal was not completed.

The Timberwolves before Butler is a young, strong and promising team especially with their defensive minded coach Thibodeau. Butler's addition to the Timberwolves will certainly put the Timberwolves in the playoff picture. The team with the youth and explosiveness added with the playoff experience Butler has will scare other teams in the NBA. Their first five probably is Ricky Rubio, Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins, Gorgui Dieng with the All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns.

Jimmy Butler on his 8th season will be the player with the most experience on the Timberwolves. Without a doubt Thibodeau will make Butler the leader of the team on and off the court and to lead them in crunch time. This trade is a celebration for the Timberwolves fans for it will give their team a chance in the playoffs if the team clicks with the Butler addition.

Bulls' side

There was a multi-player deal that went down between the Bulls and the 'Wolves the night of the NBA Draft. The Bulls traded Jimmy Butler and their 16th pick in last night’s draft Justin Patton to the 'Wolves. In return they will receive Kris Dunn, Zach Lavine. And first round draft picks Lauri Markkanen.

This move is what the Bulls needs right now which is rebuilding. The Bulls in the trade gets Kris Dunn, last year's 5th over-all pick and Zach Lavine who averages 18.9 points per game before his torn ACL injury. The team also acquires a talented rookie Lauri Markkanen who had made 69 3-pointers last season in college. This was by far the most number of 3-pointers made by a 7-footer in college basketball for the past 20 seasons.

Nobody can say what happens between the two teams but it will just be a matter of time to tell who really wins in this trade.
