Jimmy Butler Requests Trade, Handcuffs T-Wolves In Process

Noah Ferguson | 19 September, 2018, 23:11

Butler, 29, was acquired from the Chicago Bulls on draft night in 2017 and was expected to play a key role in helping Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins turn the Wolves into a playoff team.

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.

If Jimmy Butler gets his wish, there's a good chance he will soon be playing in NY.

We've all heard that Butler is fed up with the young "Timberpups" and wants to move on, possibly even angling for a trade. According to Shams Charania, Butler has given Minnesota a list of "one-to-three teams" with whom he is open to signing an extension with. Those teams include the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks. The 29-year old All-Star, who is now slated to become a free agent next summer, can sign a max deal worth four years, $140.6 million.

Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists in almost 37 minutes per game last season. With media day on Monday and training camp set to being on Tuesday, the clock is ticking.

Sources familiar with the situation told Sporting News that Butler is uncertain about playing with Wiggins - Butler had problems last season with Wiggins, his work ethic and his approach on the defensive end of the floor.
