Minnesota is telling teams that Butler's an elite player and franchise intends to keep him.

Nevertheless, Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor plans to be heavily involved in the decision-making process with president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau and GM Scott Layden, league sources said.

Butler has also informed the team that, should the situation drag on, he will not participate in on-court activity when Wolves camp opens on Tuesday, according to Krawczynski.

If Butler were to remain in Minnesota, he'd be eligible to sign a five-year, $190 million deal next summer. Other teams would see that the faint chance of Butler and Thibodeau working out a truce was truly out the window, taking away what little leverage the Wolves had to begin with.

Butler, 29, is said to favor the Los Angeles Clippers, but also reportedly has interest in the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets.

Tim Gosar says, "It's intervention time and intervention time that you go to vote Paul out". He previously held the seat in the 1st district from 2011-2013.

That's three lottery picks from a four-year period taken by Minnesota, with LaVine going 13th overall in 2014 and Dunn selected with the fifth overall pick in 2016.

One possible concern they face is trying to accommodate Butler's $19.84 million salary for the upcoming campaign, given that they're already set to pay a luxury tax this season. Trading Butler would undeniably crush Thibodeau's dream of rebuilding the 2012 Chicago Bulls roster from scratch.

So despite his request for a trade, it seems likely Butler will remain in Minnesota - and likely will for some time to come. Butler can sign a more lucrative contract next summer.

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.
