Houston Rockets: How realistic is a Jimmy Butler trade?

Jimmy Butler Jimmy Butler
Rita Gibson | 21 September, 2018, 12:31

He has requested a trade away from Minnesota following a meeting with team president and head coach Tom Thibodeau.

None of the teams previously listed have fantastic assets that they would be willing to trade nor that the Timberwolves would want.

It's happened in NY, where the Knicks traded young players and future assets in 2011 to acquire Carmelo Anthony, rather than sign him the following summer as a free agent with the cap space they had. He has already said there are at least two other teams he would consider re-signing with if traded to.

Jimmy Butler has shown his frustration towards the Timberwolves this offseason to the point of where he asked for a trade yesterday. The Knicks are not willing to trade young stars like Kevin Knox or Kristaps Porzingis, the Nets finished 12th in the Eastern Conference previous year and the Clippers don't have any potential All-Stars on their roster.

It prompted two ministers to resign and among politicians is opposed by both supporters and opponents of Brexit. Reports have suggested the former may be fudged as part of a political declaration on future ties.

The Clippers have two max contract slots available in July, and are emerging as a front-runner for Toronto's All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard when he becomes a free agent in July, league sources said.

Butler's unhappiness is just the latest issue to befall Minnesota over the past few months. His three preferred destinations are the Brooklyn Nets, the Los Angeles Clippers, and the New York Knicks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Although the Celtics are not one of the teams mentioned by Butler, the Knicks - a team that has Celtics All-Star Kyrie Irving at the top of its 2019 free agency wish list - are. 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. The team is reportedly looking to part ways with Noah before training camp opens next week, either through a trade or buyout.

Here's the catch - Jimmy reportedly does NOT want to play for the Lake Show. even though he'd be playing alongside one of the GOATs. But the team will have to make the deal that is best for the future of their franchise, whatever it may be - or from whichever team may offer it. The 29-year-old averaged 21.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game last season while leading the Timberwolves to their first postseason appearance since 2004.
