I'll say the Bears trade...in hindsight...seems like Pace felt pressure that wasn't there to go up and get his guy...
The Butler trade...he likely would leave after this contract...so leverage for him wasn't that good....

Minnesota has him for 2 years, and there is a player option (which Jimmy will decline) for a 3rd year.

I believe that Lavine is a FA after this year, if a qualifying offer is not made, and Dunn's rookie contract is up in 3 years.

Gar got robbed.

Not praising the Bulls' trade at all...
Poll called for a choice....
Bears gave up picks that they didn't have to.
Bulls couldn't get much for Butler...the league knew the bulls wouldn't give him a max contract....Butler could be a great "Robin" on an awesome team....but he thinks he is "Batman" - he's not.
