Wolves reportedly shut down Jimmy Butler trade talks

Knicks Nets should avoid Jimmy Butler trade

Butler requested a trade and the front office of the Wolves is resisting the idea of trading him while owner Glen Taylor appears determined to move him. Butler liked a comment that suggested he should team up with Kyrie Irving in NYC. Taylor is attending the NBA's Board of Governors meetings today in NY, which include owners and top basketball executives. Thibodeau is said to be resisting the idea.

Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 59 games for the Timberwolves last season.

Jimmy Butler has come to a conclusion over his future with the Minnesota Timberwolves following a meeting with the team's president of basketball operations and head coach Tom Thibodeau. They are emerging as a front-runner for Kawhi Leonard when Toronto's All-NBA forward becomes a free agent in July, league sources said.

Recent reports cite that Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns do not get along and the latter won't agree to a contract extension until Butler is gone.

Here's the catch - Jimmy reportedly does NOT want to play for the Lake Show. even though he'd be playing alongside one of the GOATs. Krawczynski's report comes just days before the Timberwolves begin training camp, with their star player wanting out ahead of the final year of his contract.

Boasting James and a talented young core, they will have $38 million in cap space available in a free agency market that is expected to also feature DeMarcus Cousins, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson.

Butler has two years remaining on the five-year, $92 million deal he signed with the Bulls in 2015.
