Jimmy Butler requests Timberwolves trade him out of Minnesota

Knicks shouldn't mortgage future for Butler; sources say Minnesota wants more than Knicks can realistically offer

Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler, right, reportedly has requested a trade.

"But the willingness of those teams to get involved with Jimmy Butler when they have the space to sign him next summer, those kind of teams who can sign him outright will be reluctant to give up significant assets or any assets at all to get him right now". Moving Butler now would nearly certainly set the franchise back, at least in the short term.

Ed Davis signed with Brooklyn on a one-year deal on July 23, meaning he can not be traded before December 15, per Larry Coon's NBA Salary Cap FAQ.

Any team that trades for Jimmy Butler will be doing so understanding the risk of potentially losing him next summer in free agency.

Expect New York to, of course, do its due diligence to acquire Butler.

Torreira Starts Alongside Elneny - Arsenal v Vorskla [Predicted Lineups]
It's the return of European football at the Emirates as Arsenal welcome the Ukranian side, Vorskla Poltava to North London. Emery is the only manager to win the Europa League/UEFA Cup three seasons in a row.

He helped lead the Timberwolves to the NBA Playoffs a year ago for the first time in 13 seasons, despite missing significant time with a torn meniscus. He has until October 15 to sign that contract, which could be worth up to $188 million over five years. With that being said, it would be interesting to pair Russell with his longtime friend Karl-Anthony Towns. If he doesn't, he will become a restricted free agent next offseason.

Towns isn't a finished product, as evidenced by his struggles early in the Wolves' first-round playoff loss to Houston last spring, but he has superstar-type talent and the Wolves want to keep him around for the long term. The trade request, which was first reported by the Athletic on Wednesday, officially makes the situation so.

There aren't a lot of coaches in the free agent market less than 30-days before the season starts, so if a move was to be made, hopefully it happens sooner rather than later. Alienating him would be a massive mistake.

"According to multiple league sources, coach Tom Thibodeau has no intention of letting Butler go for young, rebuilding-type pieces". But that would mean Thibodeau bets on his own ability to manage personalities in a way he's never cared to do or even recognized as mattering.
