Jimmy Butler requests trade; Nets on short list

Jimmy Butler requests trade; Nets on short list

Not only did Jimmy Butler demand a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, but news broke that the Los Angeles Clippers were his preferred destination.

The Athletic's sources said that Butler, 29, gave the Timberwolves a list of teams he'd consider signing with for the long term. Both are set to become unrestricted free agents in the summer of 2019, when they'll be among a stacked class of players free to sign with new teams.

Throughout the upcoming season, there will be conflicting reports about Butler and Leonard.

When the Minnesota Timberwolves acquired Jimmy Butler a year ago before the season began many people speculated about how good the team could be.

The study confirmed that a daily baby aspirin increases the risk for serious, potentially life-threatening bleeding. Half the participants were asked to take 100mg of aspirin each day, while the rest took a placebo pill.

The sudden Jimmy Butler trade drama: Let me explain... The nonchalant attitude of Karl-Anthony Towns and other members of the team's core have irritated Butler. Wiggins, meanwhile, has been said to be bothered by being relegated to the team's third offensive option behind Butler and Towns.

It's great to see the majority of Bulls fans finally coming around on Jimmy Butler.

Wojnarowski writes that Wolves owner Glen Taylor plans to be heavily involved in the decision-making process on Butler and, of course, Thibodeau. Despite the quick exit, everyone in Minnesota expected the team to build on that performance with bigger goals in mind for this season.

If this National Basketball Association executive is correct in thinking that Thibodeau wouldn't want any part of a rebuild in Minnesota if Butler is exchanged for draft picks, what are the Wolves stuck with?

Despite standing at 6-foot-8, the Kansas product has yet never averaged five rebounds per game or managed to surpass a career-best 2.3 assists per game.

Timberwolves training camp is scheduled to begin next week.

There have been multiple reports that Thibodeau really does have no interest in trading Butler, whom he acquired from the Chicago Bulls on draft night in 2017.
