Jimmy Butler Reportedly Requests Trade From Timberwolves

The veteran guard has requested a trade from the Timberwolves, The Athletic reported Wednesday, citing unidentified league sources. He reportedly has a list of 1-3 teams where he'd be willing to sign an extension, and the Sixers are not one of them.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Butler would prefer a trade to the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers or New York Knicks.

Butler is among the possible stars for next year's free agent class, which could include Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Klay Thompson and Kyrie Irving.

Murkowski speaks out on allegations against Kavanaugh
Both Ford and Kavanaugh will testify in a public hearing about the alleged incident on Monday, according to the New York Times . The accusation, which Kavanaugh has denied , is consuming Washington, where the nomination's fate is suddenly in limbo.

There have also been questions about Butler's relationship with younger teammates Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. While there is risk involved in placing a big bet on someone who has played as many minutes as Butler has, this is a genuine superstar who could help the team turn the page from culture-building to real competitiveness.

Thibodeau, who also coached Butler for four years with the Chicago Bulls, has been "resistant" to exploring Butler trades, according to Krawczynski and Charania.

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

That happened, sort of, as the Wolves won 47 games and landed the eighth and final playoff seed in the Western Conference before bowing out to the top-seeded Houston Rockets in just five games in the first round.
