Jimmy Butler requests trade from Timberwolves

It was thought when the Minnesota Timberwolves acquired Jimmy Butler in a draft-night trade in 2017 that he would expedite the Wolves rebuild, and instantly turn the team into a contender.

Charania reports that Butler provided the Timberwolves with a list of between one and three teams he would be willing to sign an extension with, presumably increasing the return the Timberwolves could receive in a deal.

It was in that meeting, Krawczynski reports, that Butler told Thibodeau he does not intend to sign a long-term extension with the Wolves next summer and wants to be dealt.

Butler, 29, has a player option in 2019-20 before becoming a free-agent.

They said the panel should be made up of workers, corporate and franchise representatives and leaders of national women's groups. However, when she reported the incident her "supervisors did nothing".

Butler had once imagined playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, but LeBron James' arrival as the franchise's cornerstone made it less appealing for Butler in the prime of his career, league sources said.
Butler's time with the Wolves saw Minnesota return to the National Basketball Association playoffs for the first time in over a decade.

The Athletic first reported Butler's trade request. 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.

Timberwolves training camp is set to begin on Tuesday.

Butler only appeared in 59 games with the Wolves, averaging 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2 steals per game.
