The Celtics and Bulls have apparently discussed adding Jae Crowder to trade talks centered on Jimmy Butler.
The Celtics have made no secret of their desire to add a star this offseason, and Butler has been their primary target for some time. The Bulls have been reticent to accept any package of assets up to this point, but a potential combination of Crowder and the No. 3 pick might grab their interest. K.C. Johnson also reports that Avery Bradley has been discussed at at least one point during the negotiations. Stay tuned.
Avery Bradley also has been discussed in one permutation of Bulls-Celtics talks, per source.

And ESPN sources say that Boston has been holding out all day for a better offer; Chicago's Jimmy Butler has been HIGH on the Celts' list
