The Chicago Bulls can lose Jimmy Butler over the next couple of seasons


The Chicago Bulls stalled the decision of offering a contract extension to Jimmy Butler last October and this can cost them. The player who gambled last fall and rejected a contract extension managing to win the NBA most improved player award and have his first All-Star selection, will probably reject a five year max-contract extension from the Bulls this summer, again.

Although Chicago has anted up their offer compared to what they’ve offered last year, Jimmy Butler will probably sign a one year extension on his contract and hit free agency next summer, like Greg Monroe from the Detroit Pistons did last year. The other option is that Butler will sign a 3 year contract, with a player opt-out option in the last year, and hit free agency in three years when the salary cap expodes thanks to the upcoming TV rights that the NBA will sign, something that Chandler Parsons did last year.
