Chicago Bulls Rumors
A source said the Timberwolves turned down a slightly lesser offer in a deal for Butler last season that included LaVine and Dunn. Of course, LaVine was still healthy then and Dunn was a much-hyped prospect rather than a second-year guard whose potential had taken a mild hit.
The Bulls insist they have made no formal decision on whether to pick up Rondo’s $13.4 million option or waive him for the $3 million guarantee by that deadline. But while the Bulls greatly value Rondo’s talent and teaching and mentoring ability, they also know their young point guards Kris Dunn and Cameron Payne need to play. And they also still have Jerian Grant. According to sources, one option being considered is waiving Rondo and trying to re-sign him at a lower salary.
