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

Butler made the request Tuesday in a much-anticipated meeting in Los Angeles with Wolves' coach Tom Thibodeau.

Despite being touted as an elite defender and athlete in college at Kansas, Wiggins has regressed since Butler joined the Timberwolves. Now, the all-star guard is on his way out of town. According to National Basketball Association insider Shams Charania, Butler alerted the front office on Wednesday of his desire to be traded and provided "a list of one to three teams with whom he's open to signing [an] extension". The 29-year old All-Star, who is now slated to become a free agent next summer, can sign a max deal worth four years, $140.6 million.

That's according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, who claims The Brooklyn Nets, LA Clippers and New York Knicks are among his preferred destinations.

So despite his request for a trade, it seems likely Butler will remain in Minnesota - and likely will for some time to come. The Timberwolves could offer him a five-year, $188 million deal next offseason, far more lucrative than any deal he can get from another franchise.

But I think, you know, it's going to be a handsome day Sunday, great weather ... natural grass, a great environment". Carlson said he thought it might have been the first time he had missed three field goals in a game.

Butler's unhappiness is just the latest issue to befall Minnesota over the past few months.

Thibodeau had been planning to meet with Butler in Minnesota about the situation but instead traveled to LA to see him earlier this week.

Butler, who turned 29 last week, averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists for Minnesota last season.
