Three reasons to trade for Jimmy Butler

22 Septembre, 2018, 21:02 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Team owner Glen Taylor has engaged in discussions with teams about a possible trade, but those teams have been rebuffed by Thibodeau and GM Scott Layden when contacted directly, a freakish dynamic that has several executives around the league scratching their heads.

Timberwolves swingman Jimmy Butler could be on the move before the season tips off.

Jimmy Butler's desire wish for a quick trade out of Minnesota has reportedly been met with resistance from the Timberwolves' braintrust. Thibodeau is said to be resisting the idea.

Thibodeau has multiple years left on his contract, so it is unlikely Minnesota lets him go, even if he takes a decidedly anti-trade stance on Butler.

Retired former National Basketball Association champion (and current ESPN analyst) Stephen Jackson posted a video Wednesday shading Wiggins in the context of a controversial tweet that Wiggins' older brother Nick sent about Butler's trade request. The franchise's business operations want to limit the sullying of what had been until now a successful marketing campaign around the franchise's starry young core, league sources said.

Things might not have gone completely the way Naomi Osaka had dreamed or imagined they would after winning her first U.S. Although she insisted she was not cheating, her coach admitted afterwards he had been coaching from the sidelines.

Butler would like to be traded to Knicks, Nets, Clippers or HEAT so he can be the MAN in a big city.

It's a double-edged sword for the Minnesota front office.

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.

Most teams interested in Butler would like to maximize their cap space for 2019 and will balk at taking back Dieng.

Butler has made his list of preferred teams known, but as we saw in the Kyrie Irving deal, those list rarely are a factor. He can sign a four-year, $141 million deal with a new team.
