The NBA Trade Deadline is Thursday and rumors have circled around Chicago Bulls all-star Jimmy Butler. He has been the subject of rampant trade speculation, especially centered around a deal that would send him to the Boston Celtics, but Butler's camp believes that the Bulls will not move their franchise cornerstone. I don't worry about it.

While it appears as though Carmelo Anthony will remain with the Knicks, there are now suitors with the assets to swing deals for Butler, Williams and other big-impact players. The question is, do the Celtics think Butler can get them over the hump in the Eastern Conference? "Hopefully I'm not going to get traded but I don't know.

Butler, 27, is averaging 24.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.8 steals through 51 games. The Kings could have gotten a much better offer for Cousins had they played the market. While the Celtics dream is not exactly news (more on it here), Lowe outlined the situation well, sharing a belief the Celtics are "zeroed in" on the two stars right now, despite the unlikelihood (for now, at least) of prying one free. The Bulls are sending mixed signals in trade talks involving Butler, keeping their cards close to their chest.
