Jimmy Butler Requests Trade from T'Wolves to Knicks, Nets, or Clippers

Jimmy Butler Timberwolves

Instead, the seven-year wing has reportedly given Minnesota a list of three destinations, a list of teams he wants to be dealt to and is willing to sign an extension with.

The 29-year-old is now meeting with Minnesota head coach Tom Thibodeau to discuss his future with the team. They aren't close to a rebuilding situation with or without Butler, so getting a veteran star in return for him would be a smart move.

Apparently, the meeting did not go well.

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski, other teams who have called the Wolves to talk about a trade have been turned down.

Prior to his time in Minnesota, the four-time All-Star spent six seasons with the Bulls.

Noah still has two years and $37.8 million remaining on his contract, though by using the waive-and-stretch provision, the Knicks can spread his remaining pay across a three-year span.

On the Bill Simmons Podcast, Stephen Curry recently pointed out that the National Basketball Association pettiness "is at an all-time high".

"I just don't think there have been many people that have understood how important winning is to me, man, " Butler told the Sun-Times in late April. As for the Timberwolves who dealt him?

Flash back to the 2017 NBA Draft: Lauri Markannen was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 7th overall pick ... and was promptly shipped to the Chicago Bulls in the Jimmy Butler trade. 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. If Butler wants out, and that wish isn't granted, how detrimental of presence could he be in the Wolves' locker room? The addition of a gritty All-Star was supposed to help groom the team's young core of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Joakim Noah's $18.5 million is weighing down its salary and offering guys like Courtney Lee, Lance Thomas or Emmanuel Mudiay isn't going to get it done.

They lost in the first round to the Golden State Warriors.
