Butler Requests Commerce From Timberwolves: Reviews

  • Jimmy Butler Tim Thibodeau

Butler turned them down.

Thibodeau and Layden have to realize that Butler is a lost cause - he wants out and he's going to get his wish - but Towns was not signing his max extension in part to protest Butler's presence on the roster.

Butler has requested a trade from Minnesota after spending just one season there.

If the Blazers are unwilling to include McCollum in a trade for Butler, Portland has other trade chips.

Only time will tell whether or not the Heat are able to make the most attractive offer and get the deal one. As much as the Lakers would surely love to pair LeBron James with a co-star, they couldn't trade for Butler without including Lonzo Ball or Brandon Ingram.

The Towns news will undoubtedly be thankfully received by a Minnesota fan base desperate for some kind of positive news after several days of stories surrounding Butler's desire to leave the team. Meniscus surgery often - not always - starts players down the road toward bone on bone conditions in the knee, which has started many players down the road toward retirement.




Not only did Phoenix win the first overall pick and take Deandre Ayton, but made a blockbuster draft day trade to acquire Mikal Bridges. Miami could trade Hassan Whiteside and another player for him. ESPN reported later Friday that Taylor told others at the Board of Governors meeting that Butler is available and inquiries should come through Taylor, if necessary. Jimmy Butler had requested a trade.

As of now, it seems only a matter of when - not if - Butler is moved.

The fourth team that comes to mind is the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Wojnarowski reports that Butler told the Timberwolves he would consider signing a contract extension with the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets in hopes of facilitating a deal.

Butler's absence, therefore, is probably for the best.

Towns' willingness to finally sign his max deal means that he nearly certainly has been assured he's never going to have to see Butler in the Wolves' locker room ever again. During the 2015-16 season, Butler and Noah had multiple disputes and had to be separated in the locker room many times.
