Jimmy Butler has Knicks, Nets on three-team trade list

Jimmy Butler requests trade from Timberwolves Jimmy Butler has Knicks, Nets on three-team trade list

Jimmy Butler wants out of Minnesota according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The addition of Jimmy Butler would give the Spurs a formidable trio of All-NBA players in their prime and one of the most talented rosters in the league.

Facing a "telltale week", the Wolves and their star player apparently reached a breaking point, as Butler has requested a trade from Minnesota, The Athletic reported Wednesday.

Butler's shortlist of preferred destinations is reportedly the Clippers, Nets, and Knicks (not the Lakers, though), and he and his camp made sure that was public knowledge to help with leveraging a deal to one of those spots. "Therefore a team acquiring Butler would not need to utilize cap space in the 2019-20 season for such a contract".

But while Butler has decided he doesn't want to be in Minnesota, telling the Timberwolves this now has - at least for now - limited his options.

He has two years remaining on the five-year, $92 million deal he signed with the Bulls in 2015 before he was traded to the Timberwolves before last season. In exchange for the then three-time NBA All-Star, the Bulls received Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and the #7 pick - Lauri Markkanen. Of course, a commitment from Butler to re-sign with the team could mitigate the issue. Now he also must balance the possibility of Butler leaving, and how the franchise should best handle that.

Thibodeau had been planning to meet with Butler in Minnesota about the situation but instead traveled to LA to see him earlier this week.
