There are rival executives who believe the Bulls and Celtics will rekindle trade talks centered on Jimmy Butler before the Feb. 23 deadline. The teams held serious talks in June, and the Celtics own the same assets — Jae Crowder, Marcus Smart, the Nets’ first-round picks in 2017 and 2018 — the teams discussed then.

More on Jae Crowder Trade

Scott Souza: #Celtics Jae Crowder: I love Boston. I don't want to leave Boston ... But stand by what I said that fans shouldn't cheer opposition.
Chris Forsberg: Brad Stevens says Crowder wished he hadn't expressed himself like he did. Says Crowder is "all in" on Boston.
The Magic eventually worked out a deal sending Harris to the Detroit Pistons. “He’s a good player that has opened a lot of eyes since he left Dallas,” a league executive whose franchise pursued a possible trade for Crowder this season, told “That contract, his talent … he’s not untradeable, but he’s about as close to being untradeable on that team.”
