Jimmy Butler Requests Trade from Timberwolves

Note: This is still a developing story so information is still coming out.

This off-season has been a disaster for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It was capped by star player Jimmy Butler requesting a trade from the Timberwolves. In the meeting, which took place Tuesday, Butler gave the T-Wolves a list of three teams of which he would re-sign with if he were traded to. That list included the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers. ESPN’s chief basketball reporter, Adrian Wojnarowski dropped another nugget of information later Tuesday by saying Butler will try to work his way out to the Clippers any way he can. It came out today from Woj as well that Minny has been declining trade requests from other teams, saying they are going to keep Butler. Ugh, it always seems (as a Timberwolves fan) once we get a star player, drama occurs. Can’t we enjoy success for once?

It has been well chronicled the tenuous relationship between Butler and the “Timberpups” (AKA Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns). Information has been leaking all summer about how Jimmy is not in good favor with the front office of the T-Wolves as well. In fact, in early July, the T-Wolves handed Jimmy a contract extension, and he declined. Jimmy said he wants to be dealt by Monday, which is the Timberwolves media day. As of right now, it does not look like he will be dealt by then. This saga drags on, and it will be interesting to see if Jimmy is dealt by the start of the regular season, and if not, will he play?
