Jimmy Butler told T-Wolves he will not change mind about trade

Jimmy Butler told T-Wolves he will not change mind about trade

Here are three reasons why the Cavs should avoid a Jimmy Butler trade. It's also been reported that the Phoenix Suns are looking to be involved in a deal that would land them a starting-caliber point guard.

Recent reports have stated that the Timberwolves' asking price in any trade for the point guard is too steep for some teams to cooperate with.

An executive with another Eastern Conference team said he believes Miami is the leading contender for Butler but that wasn't based on anything the Wolves have told him. Cornerstone pieces KAT and Andrew Wiggins would rather not have Butler on the court or in the locker room this season. According to the New York Times, "Jimmy Butler and his agent Bernie Lee have informed Wolves ownership that Miami is Butler's preferred trade destination, league sources say".

Butler, a four-time All-Star, was selected by the Bulls with the 30th pick in the 2011 draft.

"Our job is to seek out the best (trade) for us, to find something that's good for us - and we're interested in doing it", Thibodeau said.

What To Expect From Google's October Event

The 6-foot-8 small forward had a wonderful campaign with the Timberwolves past year, averaging 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists.

Despite the fact that team's president is trying to reunite Butler at the same time the Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has a different opinion - he is looking to trade the player and is ready to meet owners and front-office executives of other National Basketball Association teams himself. The Butler trade, which seems much longer ago than last summer, indicates it might not be. He was awfully close previous year, and was perhaps one Chris Paul hamstring injury away from accomplishing that goal.

Trading for Jimmy Butler, no matter what it would cost (even Josh Richardson, who is a fine player but may never have the ceiling of a Jimmy B), would be a move that gets them closer to landing a bigger whale. Many do understand why he's asking for a significant return on Butler instead of moving him out quickly in a deal.

"One of the things that I've heard from a handful of sources is that like, with the Sixers for example, with the initial offer that they made, the counteroffer was like 'we need Ben Simmons in a deal.'" O'Connor stated.
