Minnesota Timberwolves: 3 trade options for a disgruntled Jimmy Butler

According to an ESPN report, Butler has requested to be traded to either the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers or New York Knicks.

This means it's time for some speculation!

But after dealing several promising young pieces for Butler last offseason, there's pressure on Thibodeau and Co.to recoup value in a potential trade of Butler, should they indeed choose to make one.

Jimmy Butler reportedly has asked the Timberwolves to trade him, with his eye on three teams. If he opted to sign elsewhere, he could receive four years and $140.6 million. They lost to the Houston Rockets in five games in the first round. Given that guys like Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Klay Thompson and Kyrie Irving will also be on the market, one should not even assume that Butler is any of these teams' No. 1 target. Butler might have slept with Karl-Anthony Towns' girlfriend and he has called out Wiggins.

Griezmann: I am at the top with Messi, Ronaldo
Regardless of that fact, Griezmann insists he is not only at the same table as Messi, but can get even better. I want to make them grow and I have confidence in them to make me grow'.

Upon reading Shams Charania tweet about Butler's trade request, the former Wichita State guard commented, "Hallelujah". "More to do with contractual matters".

The Timberwolves were scheduled to meet with Butler this week to "have honest conversations" about his future with the team.

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