What Jimmy Butler drama might mean for Celtics

Are the Cavs monitoring the Jimmy Butler situation? What Jimmy Butler drama might mean for Celtics

None of the three teams Butler listed would really be able to help the Timberwolves.

After a reunion with his former Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, Butler has no interest committing to a long term deal with the team. A large portion of the Minnesota fanbase believe it's Thibs fault that Butler wants to leave, and not the rumored-drama surrounding Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

According to an ESPN report, Butler has requested to be traded to either the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers or New York Knicks.

But after dealing several promising young pieces for Butler last offseason, there's pressure on Thibodeau and Co.to recoup value in a potential trade of Butler, should they indeed choose to make one.

Butler's ability to partner on the Clippers with a second star player in a deep summer free agency market holds a strong appeal to Butler, league sources said.

The Guardian reports that Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell relayed Trump's remarks to attendees at a luncheon in Madrid. President Trump campaigned on the promise of building a wall on our southern border and having Mexico pay for it .

We made a decision to go through every National Basketball Association team - save for the Timberwolves, of course - and determined the pros and cons of them making a move for Butler.

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

"Why Butler would want to go there and sign?" Getting him now ensures that the team has at least one star and he can begin to recruit other players as the season presses on. Los Angeles, an organization that's spent the past year parting ways with its trio core of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, are in full-blown rebuild mode and will have enough cap space to lock in two max-deal guys next summer.

And it worked! Even though Butler was available for only 59 games, the Timberwolves clinched a playoff spot on the last night of the regular season, and they avoided a sweep before the Houston Rockets eliminated them in the quarterfinals.

PRO: Putting Butler, Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, and whatever combination of Gordon Hayward and young players (whomever doesn't get traded among Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, and Jayson Tatum) on the floor makes Boston the favorite to win the East.
