President Obama approves of Jimmy Butler contract extension with Bulls
President Barack Obama answered questions on topics ranging from politics to music to guacamole during an #AskPOTUS Twitter Q&A session Wednesday. But one of his most enthusiastic answers came on the topic of Jimmy Butler's recent extension with the Bulls.
"Butler's a great player on o and d; let's sign him up long term. go bulls!" He tweeted.
Thankfully for the Commander in Chief, that's exactly what the Bulls did Wednesday, signing Butler to a five-year contract worth $90 million.
The Bulls also extended 34-year-old forward Mike Dunleavy Jr. on the first day of NBA free-agency, as well.
Obama, a Chicago native, has not shied away from sharing his opinions on the Bulls on Twitter. On May 28, Obama said he was sorry to see Tom Thibodeau's firing.
