Jimmy Butler requests trade from Timberwolves

Jimmy Butler requested trade from Timberwolves

However, according to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic Minnesota, Thibodeau has been resistant to the idea of trading Butler. All three teams have the cap space to sign Butler, who is entering the final year of his contract with a player option for 2019.

Jimmy Butler has requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

He informed Timberwolves president and coach Tom Thibodeau of the request during a meeting Tuesday in Los Angeles, sources said.

Butler also turned down a contract extension offered by the Timberwolves earlier this offseason, knowing he could wait another season, become a free agent and sign a bigger contract. Charania recently reported that KAT still has not signed his rookie max extension and does not plan on doing so until the Jimmy Butler situation had been resolved.

We've all heard that Butler is fed up with the young "Timberpups" and wants to move on, possibly even angling for a trade.

Butler, 29, was acquired from the Chicago Bulls on draft night in 2017 and was expected to play a key role in helping Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins turn the Wolves into a playoff team.

Butler only appeared in 59 games with the Wolves, averaging 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2 steals per game.

Minnesota's training camp is scheduled to begin September 25, but Butler is reportedly optimistic a deal could be done before camp begins.
