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

  • Sources Jimmy Butler requests trade from Timberwolves

But it also risks Minnesota trading Butler and his Bird Rights to another team and him re-signing there.

Butler's arrival in Brooklyn might happen sooner than that. He reportedly provided a list of one to three teams with which he would be open to signing a long-term deal, sources said.

Jimmy Butler has reportedly requested a trade after meeting with Minnesota Timberwolves brass and head coach Tom Thibodeau in Los Angeles on Tuesday. He could also agree to sign a lucrative extension before then if he's traded to a new team. For value purposes, the Clippers might actually form the best odds at 9/1, as the team employs an interesting assortment of trade assets in conjunction with the obvious allure of Los Angeles.

Taking on one of their less desirable contracts, like center Gorgui Dieng (he'll earn $48.5 million over the next three seasons), could be enticing enough for the Wolves to bite.


The Clippers have the ideal situation and have the trade pieces to get this done. Thibodeau is famously, and relentlessly, competitive, and it is hard to envision him being willing to part with a player who embodies everything he values in a player and whom he traded Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft to acquire. However, what they may be willing to part with given the 29-year-old is in the final year of his contract is unknown.

A first-round draft pick in 2011, Butler was named the NBA's Most Improved Player in 2014-15.

The Clippers would nearly undoubtedly have to part ways with 2018 first-round pick Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who is an extremely promising point guard with a massive ceiling. Now, the all-star guard is on his way out of town.
