Jimmy Butler isn’t worth the price for the Toronto Raptors

I know there are some peripheral things to be cautious about when it comes to Jimmy Butler. Butler reportedly requested a trade during his meeting with the organization's brass on Tuesday, and now, the everyone is wondering what will happen to one of the best two-way players on earth.

Butler can be a free agent in July, and those three teams have the max salary space to sign him without giving up assets in a trade.

However, The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski reports "Butler's decision had very little if anything to do with Towns and Wiggins". Andrew Wiggins' brother, Nick, replied to Shams Charania's report with a "Hallelujah" in a now-deleted show of jubilation.

The Portuguese forward was reluctant to leave the field at the Mestalla and appeared to be on the verge of tears as he finally walked to the tunnel in disbelief.

Butler has been unhappy with the Timberwolves since being traded from the Bulls in June 2017, leading to a breaking point with training camp beginning next week. The T-Wolves also received a first-round pick in the deal.

Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists in almost 37 minutes per game last season. And if Minnesota struggles to make the playoffs, or misses it altogether, this season, Thibodeau's time in Minneapolis could come to a close. The 29-year-old was selected No. 30 overall in the 2011 draft by Chicago. As importantly, he set an example for what many considered to be a previously soft young Timberwolves team with his tough work ethic and "never say die" attitude.
