Minnesota Timberwolves: 3 trade options for a disgruntled Jimmy Butler

Minnesota Timberwolves: 3 trade options for a disgruntled Jimmy Butler”

All three teams have cap space to sign Butler outright next offseason as a free agent.

Jimmy Butler's days with the Minnesota Timberwolves appear to be numbered.

We've all heard that Butler is fed up with the young "Timberpups" and wants to move on, possibly even angling for a trade.

The never-ending drama that is the National Basketball Association offseason continued on Wednesday when The Athletic reported that All-Star guard Jimmy Butler requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Butler has reportedly given the Timberwolves a list of one to three teams where he would be open to signing a contract extension.

Krawczynski cites league sources who told him Butler met with Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau (also Butler's coach in Chicago) in Los Angeles Tuesday to discuss Butler's status with the team. Andrew Wiggins' brother, Nick Wiggins, tweeted "Hallejulah" in response to Charania's tweet reporting Butler wanted to be moved. His front office traded Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the rights to Lauri Markkanen for Butler and the rights to Justin Patton on the day of the 2017 NBA Draft.

Minnesota's training camp is scheduled to begin September 25, but Butler is reportedly optimistic a deal could be done before camp begins.

In 59 games for the Timberwolves last season, Butler averaged 22.2 points per game on 47.4 per cent shooting.
