The scary team is the 76ers. There's a really uncertain NBA rebuild. Meanwhile, the Bucks drafted the Greek Freak and now Philadelphia is way behind them.

The Sixers have been bad for a while but I certainly wouldn't say they're way behind the Bucks. When Simmons gets back in a little bit here, they're really going to start looking like a fun, young team. It's taken forever but their awfulness is definitely starting to pay off.

Butler to the Celtics for the rights of the nets pick? Fair trade?

Awful trade. If you trade with the Celtics you need to get the Nets pick this year, nets pick the following year, and Jaylen Brown. I'd probably argue you need one more, such as Marcus Smart or Crowder. I'd start by asking for the first three pieces plus Crowder. Supposedly Nets and Celtics have talked about trading Jaylen Brown for Lopez (plus some other pieces).

On the other side of the equation, if the Bulls were going to buy, I'd think a point guard and someone like Okafor would be the direction they should go. I just don't know how they can do it. I suppose PG can be in free agency and Okafor would have to be a trade (and maybe it happens given the Sixers crowded front court...but I'd think a 3rd team would have to be involved).

Wade made some comments about how if Butler goes, he goes and if Butler stays, he probably stays. Very refreshing comments as a whole (Wade was being refreshingly honest based upon the quotes I saw from the interview).

Jimmy Butler has been voted a starting guard for the Eastern Conference All Stars.

Apparently he counts as a forward. that wasn't in the tweet and I just assumed he was a 2 guard. Dah well.
