Jimmy Butler SNUBS Lakers, Timberwolves star three teams revealed

The never-ending drama that is the National Basketball Association offseason continued on Wednesday when The Athletic reported that All-Star guard Jimmy Butler requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 29-year old All-Star, who is now slated to become a free agent next summer, can sign a max deal worth four years, $140.6 million.

Despite being touted as an elite defender and athlete in college at Kansas, Wiggins has regressed since Butler joined the Timberwolves.

"Any team acquiring Butler would be able to move forward with a maximum extension next summer, with his Bird Rights accompanying him in a trade".

Both the Knicks and Nets are on that list, according to ESPN, with the Clippers as the third potential destination. In exchange for the then three-time NBA All-Star, the Bulls received Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and the #7 pick - Lauri Markkanen. (See Leonard, Kawhi). And Vegas thinks the Sixers are the most likely new team for Butler to start the season on.

There have also been questions about Butler's relationship with younger teammates Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. And if Minnesota struggles to make the playoffs, or misses it altogether, this season, Thibodeau's time in Minneapolis could come to a close.

The Thibodeau-Butler meeting was expected to be a serious conversation on the franchise's fragile state, sources said.
