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

Jimmy Butler

Butler is one of the premier players in the National Basketball Association. But will the Minnesota Timberwolves let him?

Disgruntled with his current situation and looking at his next contract, All-Star wing Jimmy Butler has requested that the Minnesota Timberwolves trade him, according to multiple reports.

The All-NBA's wing's request comes six days before the start of Timberwolves' training camp, and five days before the team's media day, placing the team in a tight spot this late in the offseason.

Butler informed Tom Thibodeau he would prefer a trade and plans to leave in free agency.

But still, plenty of players get traded to teams that aren't on their "list".

Butler's three preferred destinations are the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported.

Butler joined Minnesota in a trade with the Chicago Bulls in June 2017.

So which team would be the front-runner if Butler has his way? But the promise of potential and future success alongside Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins appears to not be what interests Butler at this time. Wiggins, meanwhile, has been said to be bothered by being relegated to the team's third offensive option behind Butler and Towns.

The Clippers have two max contract slots available in July.

All of this also ratchets up the pressure on Thibodeau, who was already seen as being in some hot water before Wednesday's developments.

He helped lead the Timberwolves to the NBA Playoffs past year for the first time in 13 seasons, despite missing significant time with a torn meniscus.
