Bulls All-Star Jimmy Butler isn’t concerned about the recent trade rumors regarding his future in Chicago.
Butler, who signed a five-year max contract worth over $90 million with the Bulls last summer, made it clear that he wants to stay — and win — in Chicago for the long haul.
“That’s why I’m here,” Butler told ESPN.com after Thursday night’s 103-100 win over the Houston Rockets. “I don’t plan on going anywhere. I can’t control what everybody else does. I know that this is the city that I love, Chicago. And I want to wear that jersey. I want to wear that name on the front, and I wear it proudly.”
