While the future of Jimmy Butler with the Chicago Bulls has remained uncertain, he spoke of his love for the franchise during an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live!

"They took a chance on me in 2011 with the 30th pick. I'm forever grateful for that," Butler said. "I love it there."

The Bulls have conveyed to Butler that they're not looking to move him but must listen to any reasonable offer.

Chicago is ultimately more likely to run it back with Butler, Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo next season.

Last offseason, the Bulls were seeking at least three and sometimes four assets in exchange for Butler.
