Timberwolves' Asking Price for Jimmy Butler Is Too High

Timberwolves' Asking Price for Jimmy Butler Is Too High

For that reason, he's glad he's not in teammate Jimmy Butler's position.

Butler was allowed to not participate in media day by Wolves management and ownership reportedly wants him out.

Butler shocked the National Basketball Association last week when he requested that the Timberwolves - who just a year earlier landed the superstar in a draft-night deal with the Chicago Bulls - trade him once again.

Stein reports the Heat have been "aggressively" pursuing Butler since he requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves last week.

It's unclear what, exactly, the Rockets would offer for Butler.

The Timberwolves will receive Sexton, the Cavs' conditional first-round pick and Sacramento Kings shooting guard Iman Shumpert while the Kings take on shooting guard J.R. Smith in exchange for two second-round picks. The Wolves are not obligated to trade Butler to a team of his choosing but since he's entering the final year of his contract, any potential trade partner would likely need assurance that he's willing to resign a long-term extension.

Minnesota is reportedly in search of "quality" veterans, top prospects, future assets and cap relief in any swap, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

Miami remains an attractive destination, with Josh Richardson, Goran Dragic, Kelly Olynyk, and Hassan Whiteside all players that could potentially come back to Minnesota.

At any rate, we don't know a lot more than we did earlier in the week, except for that Miami and Houston appear to be the most aggressive teams at this stage.

According to reports, the Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings also have expressed interest.

"One thing about everybody who's here, from the coaching staff, players, everybody's familiar with each other, we've been through a lot together, so we've just got to keep trying".
