Butler made his second return as a visitor to the United Center Wednesday night and first since he forced his way out of Minnesota and landed with the 76ers in November.
Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler hugs former Bulls Teammate Robin Lopez before the Feb. 9, 2018 game at the United Center.
Butler spent the majority of his pregame visiting with not only former teammates and coaches but also support staff and front-office members.
“Jimmy is a warrior,” said Bulls coach Jim Boylen , an assistant during Butler’s last two seasons in Chicago.
In Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen and Kris Dunn, their future is centered on the return from the Butler trade.
