Houston Rockets: How realistic is a Jimmy Butler trade?

Houston Rockets: How realistic is a Jimmy Butler trade?

As first reported by The Athletic's Shams Charania and Jon Krawczynski, a meeting between the Minnesota Timberwolves' star wing and their head coach did not settle matters between the two parties, and now Jimmy Butler trade rumors are running wild. The former Bull gave the Timberwolves a list of three teams he's willing to sign an extension with if traded: the Nets, Clippers and Knicks. The Knicks want to move Lee for extra 2019 cap space, and he would certainly be offered up in a Butler package if the Knicks could get him on the cheap.

The Clippers have two max contract slots available in July. But the organization can ship him anywhere, especially if another team can send a better trade package that will help the team.

Caron Butler says LeBron James and Jimmy Butler would be a match made in heaven. telling TMZ Sports the Lakers should try to make a trade for the All-Star.

Butler's unhappiness is just the latest issue to befall Minnesota over the past few months.

Thibodeau also could be banking on the fact that Butler would be eligible to sign a $190 million, five-year max deal with the Wolves next summer, as opposed to the four-year, $141 million deal he could get elsewhere as a free agent. One reason Towns is dragging his feet on signing a contract that will pay him life-changing money is believed to be because of his feelings toward Butler.

Twitter to bring back chronological timeline - here's how to get it
Twitter is once again shaking up the order in which its users see tweets - by bringing back the purely chronological feed. It's been a long time coming, but we can finally organize our Twitter timelines in a way that makes flawless sense again.

Retired former National Basketball Association champion (and current ESPN analyst) Stephen Jackson posted a video Wednesday shading Wiggins in the context of a controversial tweet that Wiggins' older brother Nick sent about Butler's trade request.

Team president Steve Mills indicated he won't stray from his rebuilding plan by dealing assets to acquire a player who will likely hit free agency next summer.

And who wouldn't want to play with Kyrie? Butler wants out. And he isn't the only one, as Nick Wiggins (briefly with the Timberwolves in 2015 training camp) tweeted "Hallelujah" before deleting. And if Minnesota struggles to make the playoffs, or misses it altogether, this season, Thibodeau's time in Minneapolis could come to a close.

Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists on a team stacked with athletic wing players previous year.
