Alexey Shved intends to stay in the NBA next season

“I don’t know who said this,’’ Shved said regarding European aspirations. “But I’ve never said this. I’m not thinking about that. I want to stay here. “I’m not thinking about [free agency],’’ added Shved, who won a bronze medal on the 2012 Russian Olympic Team. “I still have this season. The next year I’m going to be a free agent, and that’s my agent’s job. I just want to finish this season in great shape and win a couple more games.’’

Butler could do a four-year deal with a player option after three years to capitalize on new salary-cap money. The Bulls also offered him a one-year qualifying offer of $4.5 million, sources said.
