  • Wolves guard Jimmy Butler is ready to go for this sprint to the regular season finish line

A week before the start of training camp, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler reportedly has requested a trade.

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

Caron Butler says LeBron James and Jimmy Butler would be a match made in heaven. telling TMZ Sports the Lakers should try to make a trade for the All-Star. Reports indicate Butler has requested to be traded, and there are up to three teams where he would potentially sign a maximum contract extension.

Jimmy Butler is most interested in a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers, according to sources. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Butler's three choices are the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, and the Los Angeles Clippers.

"We're going to build this team the right way".




Butler arrived in Minnesota in a 2017 draft day trade with the Chicago Bulls for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the the No. 7 pick that turned out to be forward Lauri Markkanen.

The Clippers would nearly undoubtedly have to part ways with 2018 first-round pick Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who is an extremely promising point guard with a massive ceiling.

But it appears as though the 29-year-old couldn't agree to playing in Minnesota for one more season. At that point, it becomes second-round picks in 2024 and 2025.

With that as the backdrop, the good folks at Bovada.lv already have odds on the board as to where Butler will be when the 2018-19 season begins and that means a good, old-fashioned wagering opportunity.

Getting a deal done theoretically is one thing. 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.
