Jimmy Butler, who was traded by the Chicago Bulls in late June after six seasons with the team, quietly put his River North mansion on the market last week.

The listing for Butler's house on Huron Street, priced at $5 million, appeared last week on Top Agent Network, a members-only website where a small group of real estate agents often list homes that aren't on the public multiple listing service.

Butler bought the 10,000-square-foot home in the Kingsbury Estates neighborhood for $4.3 million in September 2015.

Archived online listings from before Butler bought the home said it had six bedrooms, a 1,300-square-foot rooftop deck, a 750-bottle wine cellar and a three-car garage. Crain's couldn't determine whether Butler has made any changes or upgrades to the house.

His asking price is about 16 percent above what he paid for the home.

Butler, who could not be reached for comment, joined the Bulls in 2011. On June 22, the team traded him to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Butler's house is four doors down the street from a home where former Chicago Bear Matt Forte is planning an addition. On the block behind Butler's house, on Superior Street, the family of Amway co-founder Richard DeVos is building a $13 million home.
