Thursday was a big day for fans of NBA and NBA 2K17. On draft night, the Philadelphia 76ers won the draft by trading for the No. 1 pick to take Markelle Fultz. The Lakers took Lonzo Ball with No. 2 pick. However, almost everyone agrees that Minnesota Timberwolves were the biggest winners last night.
The Wolves sent Kris Dunn, 2016 first-round pick, shooting guard Zach LaVine and the No. 7 pick to Chicago for Butler and the No. 16 pick. Jimmy Butler, who excels on both ends of the floor, will reunite with his former coach Tom Thibodeau in Minnesota, and joins a core of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins that may rank among the best in the league within two years.
Minnesota used the No. 16 pick to take lanky - but - skilled Creighton big man Justin Patton, while Chicago used No. 7 on Arizona big Lauri Markkanen. The gap between those two players in no way makes up for the gap between Butler and the players the Wolves dealt to get him.
Meanwhile the Chicago Bulls gave away All-Star guard Jimmy Butler and the rights to Justin Patton at No. 16 to the Minnesota Timberwolves for guards Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the rights to Laurie Markkanen a one-dimensional player who doesn’t really have the star potential of Malik Monk or Dennis Smith Jr.. This deal wasn’t a complete disaster for the Bulls, but they did get a lot less than many expected them to. At the post - draft news conference, their fans were so angry about the deal. Some even said the losing would soon commence in Chicago.
