For Bulls, blockbuster trade is all about direction

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Bulls set a clear direction by trading All-Star Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves on draft night last week.

The Bulls had plenty of people talking after they traded one of the NBA's top two-way players for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and No. 7 overall pick Lauri Markkanen, three newcomers who were introduced at a news conference on Tuesday.

Bulls vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said debating which team got the better end of the deal is "the wrong way to look at it" at the moment.
