The Boston Celtics are on the hunt for another point guard, and they may have found it in Derrick Rose.
The team acquired guard Jimmy Butler from the Los Angeles Lakers last week for forward Jimmy Butler, according to league sources.
The Celtics will look to add another scoring option after losing Kevin Love and Joakim Noah in free agency, sources told ESPN.
The move will help Boston get back on track and give it a chance to compete for a playoff spot.
Boston acquired Butler in a trade with the Los Altos in January that brought back point guard Marcus Smart, who had surgery to repair a torn ACL in late January.
The former Indiana Pacers standout averaged 17.9 points and 6.3 assists per game last season.
The deal gave Boston a scoring option for Butler, who missed most of the season with a torn right ACL.
Boston also added former Utah Jazz point guard Trey Burke, a six-year veteran.
The 27-year-old Burke, who is recovering from back surgery, has averaged 16.5 points, 4.7 assists and 1.3 steals in 14.3 minutes per game for Utah.
The Jazz acquired Butler from Golden State last month for two draft picks, along with a 2019 first-round pick.
Butler averaged 15.4 points, 6.8 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 22.8 minutes per contest last season with the Warriors.
