Anyone reading that would conclude the only option for the Timberwolves is to trade him and get something back for him. The Bulls won that trade and all Jimmy Butler did was screw Tom Thibodeau. Butler's camp has downplayed a fractured locker room as the reason for wanting to leave Minnesota, but the issues between him and the other star players - particularly Andrew Wiggins - on the team were evident after news of Butler's trade request leaked.

Towns' willingness to finally sign his max deal means that he nearly certainly has been assured he's never going to have to see Butler in the Wolves' locker room ever again. If not, they can fine him every day he fails to report.

This would be an ultimatum but considering Karl-Anthony Towns is not going to sign his extension until the Butler situation is sorted out, timeliness is important in their inevitable decision.

In a statement, Towns said, "On June 25, 2015, I was drafted to and committed to the Minnesota Timberwolves".

It's also worth noting that Butler didn't include the Lakers on his shortlist of preferred trade destinations, which now include the New York Knicks, the Brooklyn Nets, and the Los Angeles Clippers. "Thank you for believing in me".

Towns has been at the focal point of the Minnesota offense ever since his debut in the league, earning the 2016 NBA Rookie of the Year Award.

I am here for Lauri feeling himself and throwing some shade at the Timberwolves, who are now left with Jimmy Butler wanting to leave after one season. Obviously, the second and third of these are an extreme long shot, but the 22-year-old already earned third-team All-NBA honors in 2017-18.

Minnesota acquired Butler previous year from head coach Tom Thibodeau's former team, the Chicago Bulls. By trading Butler they would essentially be giving up on the opportunity to go for it with a fully healthy team.
