As the entire Jimmy Butler saga in Chicago prepares to play out later this summer, theres still a strong chance that he could be traded. There were rumors surrounding the All-Star heading up to Februarys trade deadline, but the Bulls decided to hang on to their franchise player.

Now, following a first-round playoff exit and with widespread questions about the future of Chicagos roster, it sure looks like Butler himself is making some back channel noise about acquiring fellow All-Star Carmelo Anthony.

To be clear, this is an intriguing possibility. Assuming Dwyane Wade decides to remain in Chicago, the idea of adding Anthony could make some sense. We already know Wade and Anthony are friends. And with Butler still in his prime, this has the look of a potential contender back east.

There are, however, two issues here.
