    My initial thought was get rid of damn near everyone and hire Becky Hammon.

    Oh and Philly wanting to do it.

    Still..
    Add Bayless to it and we can throw in a 2nd rounder. And somehow make Philly want to do it.

    This Sporting News article says that Thibs would leave (yes please!) if he is forced to trade Butler. This will likely piss the hell out of KAT. If Butler isn't traded and reports to camp next week, the Bulls vs young Wolves factions in the locker room will be so toxic.

    Per Sporting News:

    According to multiple league sources, coach Tom Thibodeau has no intention of letting Butler go for young, rebuilding-type pieces. Thibodeau, hotly pursued as a coaching free agent after leaving Chicago in 2015, went to Minnesota because he thought the team would be ready to contend quickly.


    Butler, acquired last summer in a trade with the Bulls, had become part of that thought process. Thibodeau has zero interest in taking a step back with Minnesota, even, according to sources, if it means he ultimately parts ways with the team.

    "No one expects Tom to coach a 25-win or even 35-win team," one front-office executive told Sporting News. "Even if he has to agree to dissolve the contract, they’d do that before they go and trade Butler for draft picks."

    Thibs and Butler are made for each other; two folks with over inflated opinions of themselves. Neither has accomplished enough to be demanding anything.
