AP Source: Bulls reach 5-year, $90M deal with Jimmy Butler

CHICAGO (AP) Jimmy Butler bet on himself and won big.

Butler agreed to terms Wednesday on a five-year maximum contract that could be worth $90 million and includes a player option for the final year, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been finalized. The total value of the contract could wind up being a little higher depending on the salary cap figure for next season, which will be set on July 9.

The deal comes on the heels of a breakout season in which Butler made his first All-Star team and was selected the NBA's Most Improved Player. He averaged 20 points after he and the Bulls were unable to agree to a contract extension last fall.
