Timberwolves Asked For Ben Simmons In Jimmy Butler Trade

Timberwolves General Manager Scott Layden and head coach Tom Thibodeau at the first day of training camp Tuesday Report: Heat at top of Jimmy Butler's trade wish list

Rockets GM Daryl Morey, right, is reportedly looking for a way to Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler next to reigning MVP James Harden.

It's not often a borderline superstar becomes available in trade talks, especially when the obtainable player wants to play for your team. If the Timberwolves remain intent on unloading backup center Gorgui Dieng and the three years and $48 million left on his contract, they will need the Kings.

Almost one week after reportedly issuing his trade request, Jimmy Butler still remains a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The situation could be resolved quickly as well if a team steps in and gives Minnesota an offer which they can't refuse, but this seems unlikely due to Taylor's desire to move Butler along. Now, Miami with cap space to pay Butler long-term could be the favorite.

Plane overshot runway before ending up in Micronesian lagoon
The PNG Accident Investigation Commission is preparing a team to travel to the site of the accident. People in small boats were seen rescuing people from the plane before it began to sink.

Butler, meanwhile, took a physical with the Wolves on Monday before Thibodeau declared that the player is still doing rehab work after having minor surgery on his hand during the offseason.

He had previously said that the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers were at the top of his list. Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and Lauri Markannen come out to three-first round picks and there is no way any team will give that up for a possible one-year rental of Butler's talents, even if they are top-ten National Basketball Association talents.

Eventually, the Butler saga has to end, but where he goes, no one knows. Rumors of discord between Butler, coach Tom Thibodeau and young stars Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins seemingly escalated to a point of no return, leaving the front office with little choice but to honor his request.
