Bulls get Shumpert and Cavs 1st rounder
Cavs get trade exception (Butler)

Bulls take Shumpert for the pick and Cavs get rid of a player they don't need nor want.

It makes some sense, but given the fact that Shumpert probably opts out to try and get one last big contract (and to not be part of the Bulls tanking), I'm not sure it's really worth a 1st round pick even if the Cavs do save a ton of cash.

Also, with I think they'll want to keep their picks flexible as possible incase a big name player hits the trade market.
