Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler are still trying to figure out a way to play together, according to a source.
The two were connected last offseason when both were on the trade block. Butler was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves on draft night and Irving was moved to the Boston Celtics in August. Irving had interest in joining Butler with the Bulls.
A source says Butler has no interested in signing an extension this summer with the Wolves and is fed up with the nonchalant attitude of younger teammates, especially Karl-Anthony Towns.
Both Irving and Butler will be free agents in 2019.
Zach Lowe later also reported Irving and Butler would like to play together, according to sources.
