A lot of people are wondering how the trio of Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo are going to co-exist in the Chicago Bulls team when all three of them are ball-happy guards.

Early suggestions indicate that Butler will now be playing at small forward, but he will still very much be the two-way wing he always was.

Wade has taken the two-spot from Butler while Ronda is manning the point.

However, the Bulls have lost their first two preseason games and already murmurs are surfacing that this summer's business wasn't the smartest by the Chicago front office.

In a preseason match against the Indiana Pacers, though, Wade and Butler showed one glittering sign to suggest they will be able to gel just fine this season.

Wade had the ball at the top left-hand side of the key for his hometown franchise before he spotted the run of an eager Butler making his way for the rim.

The 34-year-old former Miami Heat man found Butler with a lofted pass so that Jimmy could hammer down the alley-oop slam.

It's an early look in to the chemistry that is developing in the Windy City, but to be real Eastern Conference contenders, they will need more than some flashy dunks.
