Limited Kids Darius Slay Jersey Phil Jackson was out of line when he said Carmelo Anthony would be better off someone else. At least, according to NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts.
But as out-of-line as his comments might have been seen, they will not cost him any money.
The Cavaliers, seeking another top-caliber backcourt mate for Kyrie Irving, are trying to figure out multi-team trade scenarios, according to ESPN.
The Cavaliers, per league sources, have been working today on assembling multi-team trade scenarios to try to acquire Chicago’s Jimmy Butler
The Celtics are also believed to be interested in acquiring the 6-7 Butler, who just completed the second year of a five-year, $95 million contract that includes an option for that fifth season.
Butler went to his third straight All-Star game this past season, when he averaged 23.9 point, 5.5 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game. But despite high hopes after adding Dwyane Wade last offseason, the Bulls went a disappointing 41-41 and squeaked into the playoffs as the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.
While no one knows where Butler will play next season, one thing is becoming clear — his time with the Bulls is probably over.

I don’t think he should be compared to either of those players because they play different positions. Kobe and Michael are both 2-guards. They’re both scorers. They’re mostly like a Kyrie. They’re looking to score the basketball when it hits their hand. They’re not looking to make plays for anybody on the floor. They’re not looking to be a facilitator. That’s the role that LeBron plays because he’s such a dominant and powerful force, and he’s a great passer.
When asked who does James compare to, Pippen brought up another Lakers great.
