Timberwolves Rejecting Jimmy Butler Trade Offers

As much as Thibodeau might like Butler - Thibodeau coached Butler for four seasons with the Chicago Bulls and acquired him in June 2017 - Butler has no interest in being in Minnesota and Towns does. That report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski came with a caveat that Butler's availability depended on team owner Glen Taylor's approval.

Many of those attending the board of governors meetings are convinced that Taylor and top team business officials don't want a prolonged saga with Butler, preferring to move him to a new team sooner than later.

Even if the Lakers were willing to include Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram in a trade, it would have to be a pretty complex trade likely involving three teams. Minnesota, however, appears poised to keep the second-youngest All-Star in franchise history behind Kevin Garnett (1997, 20 years old).

Jimmy Butler has been granted permission to not participate in media day with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.

Butler would be eligible to sign a five-year, $190 million deal during this season and a four-year, $140 million deal in free agency next offseason.

The appeal of trading for Butler lies with the 2019 free agent class. Brooklyn has room for two max contracts.

Butler has been intrigued by the possibility of teaming with another star.

The Miami Heat have been interested in Butler too, league sources said, although the Heat don't have the salary-cap space in July to pursue him.

With the ongoing public feuds between Andrew Wiggins and Stephen Jackson, the Butler camp and the TWolves organization, and the Towns contract extension situation, more drama is the last thing Minnesota needs. Part of that may be smart negotiation tactics, but the more significant factors are that right now offers the trade offers are lowball, plus Thibodeau realizes his job on the line and this team is not as good without Butler.
