The Timberwolves Are Determined to Lose Jimmy Butler for Nothing

The Timberwolves Are Determined to Lose Jimmy Butler for Nothing”

Jimmy Butler has demanded a trade from the Timberwolves. As we know, the Bulls traded Butler on draft night in 2017, for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall pick. He even met with head coach Tom Thibodeau, the former Bulls leader, in Los Angeles to inform him of his desire.

Butler and Towns led the way on the court but it's clear now they did not click off the court.

If Butler does ultimately stay, the team has some chemistry issues that need to be addressed.

"Also: As the case with past trades involving Minnesota stars Kevin Garnett and Kevin Love, owner Glen Taylor will be a major part of the process on deciding whether to move Butler this season".

But perhaps sensing that a deal may not be done over the weekend, the team has now made the wise decision to excuse Butler from media day, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania. Taylor's plan would be to sift through the offers, and bring the offers most appealing for Minnesota back to Butler and his agent, Bernie Lee. His arrival turned the Wolves from a 30-win team to a 48-win team a year ago, a win total that would've been significantly higher had Butler remained healthy.

The Timberwolves will have the final say on where the point guard will land, but it comes as no surprise that he has listed each of these three teams as a desired landing spot. Other teams would see that the faint chance of Butler and Thibodeau working out a truce was truly out the window, taking away what little leverage the Wolves had to begin with.

Towns has been at the focal point of the Minnesota offense ever since his debut in the league, earning the 2016 NBA Rookie of the Year Award.

He also seems to want to avoid an awkward situation stemming from Butler showing up Monday.

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 has been intrigued by the possibility of teaming with another star.
