  • Jimmy Butler Requests Trade from T'Wolves to Knicks, Nets, or Clippers

Butler's time with the Wolves saw Minnesota return to the National Basketball Association playoffs for the first time in over a decade.

Frustrated Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler has officially requested a trade out of Minnesota, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

Oh, and there's also the report that Butler and Irving had an interest in teaming up somewhere within the East. Equipped with a blend of solid young and veteran players like Tobias Harris, Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley, the Clippers have pieces that can help the Timberwolves right away.

The Minnesota Timberwolves finally made it back to the playoffs last season, losing to the Houston Rockets in the first round in their first appearance since 2004.

Butler remains a star player who has an unquestioned work ethic on the floor, but he turned 29 last week and has played in all 82 regular-season games only once in seven seasons.

Butler told Thibodeau on Wednesday that he wants to be traded, ideally to a team of his choice where he and Irving can presumably pursue their idea of a championship venture. The guard willed Minnesota to the playoffs, snapping a 13-year postseason drought. Tobias Harris, Patrick Beverley, Marcin Gortat, Wesley Johnson, Milos Teodosic, Mike Scott and Luc Mbah a Moute will all be free agents.

Ed Davis signed with Brooklyn on a one-year deal on July 23, meaning he can not be traded before December 15, per Larry Coon's NBA Salary Cap FAQ. Joakim Noah's $18.5 million is weighing down its salary and offering guys like Courtney Lee, Lance Thomas or Emmanuel Mudiay isn't going to get it done.

Brooklyn would likely offer a deal centered around DeMarre Carroll as well as Caris LeVert.

This type of path would make sense for Minnesota. The nonchalant attitude of Karl-Anthony Towns and other members of the team's core have irritated Butler.

Because over the six-month span from November to April, that was the only Towns basket Butler assisted during clutch situations (a game within five points in the final five minutes).

It's unclear if Russell or any of the players mentioned above would convince Thibodeau to stay at his post with the Timberwolves. A deal with the Cavs could be the best move for both teams.
