Miami Heat New Favorites to Land Jimmy Butler

Miami Heat New Favorites to Land Jimmy Butler”

The Rockets' pursuit of disgruntled Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler is still ongoing.

There is one foolproof way to prove that this is all being done in good faith, though, and that's trading Butler and letting both sides move on as soon as possible.

If Butler is now saying Miami is his preferred trade destination, it has to mean he has aspirations to be there in the long term.

On Friday, Timberwolves guard/forward Jimmy Butler requested a trade out of Minnesota.

"League sources say Miami is a team that strongly appeals to the free agent-to-be Butler after a trade".

"We're checking some of those boxes off and I just love the competition when the guys are fighting for opportunities".

But regardless when a deal actually gets done, it feels like at this point it will simply be a relief for all parties involved once this whole thing is over. Keep in mind, this is all for a disgruntled player with only one year left on his contract. Taylor might step in and demand his front office take the best deal in order to put this situation to bed, while an interested team might sweeten its offer to make sure it gets Butler. Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and Lauri Markannen come out to three-first round picks and there is no way any team will give that up for a possible one-year rental of Butler's talents, even if they are top-ten National Basketball Association talents.

It's important to note that the Kings have been looking for a forward all summer long and the Timberwolves have Andrew Wiggins as well as the Heat having Justice Winslow, so this deal could easily be a blockbuster one at the end of the day.

Thibodeau reportedly tried to convince Butler to stay during a meeting on Monday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, but the 29-year-old star "remained resolute" on his desire for a trade.
