All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler knows he will be the subject of trade rumors yet again this summer, but he repeated his desire to stay with the Chicago Bulls for the long term after Friday’s series-ending loss to the Boston Celtics.

In the process, Butler also acknowledged that he would like for Rajon Rondo’s team option to be picked up this summer.

“Of course,” Butler said. “He’s been huge for us this year, man.”
