The Chicago Bulls have until October 31st to sign G/F Jimmy Butler to a contract extension.  In the event that no agreement is reached, Butler will become a restricted free agent at seasons' end.  Since being drafted in 2011 Butler has averaged 8.9 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.

"I want to be here," Butler said. "I think the Bulls want me here. So however long it takes, as long as we get it worked out. Basketball is my main focus, not really the contract situation."

"They definitely are [working on it]," he said. "I think we're really good right now, moving in the right direction. But that's between them. I just got to be with my teammates and whatever I do between myself and that basket will handle that a lot easier."
