Minnesota Timberwolves: 3 trade options for a disgruntled Jimmy Butler

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

While they don't appear to be on his list of preferred teams, the Los Angeles Lakers were previously connected to Butler. According to Shams Charania, Butler has given Minnesota a list of "one-to-three teams" with whom he is open to signing an extension with.

Facing a "telltale week", the Wolves and their star player apparently reached a breaking point, as Butler has requested a trade from Minnesota, The Athletic reported Wednesday.

According to multiple reports from throughout the summer, Butler and teammate Karl-Anthony Towns do not see eye to eye, but it remains to be seen if that played a role in his reported trade request.

Sharifs' jail sentences suspended in corruption case, to be released
Nawaz's son-in-law was given 1 year jail time - for not cooperating with NAB, and aiding and abeting Nawaz and Maryam. Justice Minallah had then remarked, "This is an important case and would have been great if we concluded it today".

After six seasons with the Chicago Bulls, Butler played his first season in Minnesota previous year, averaging 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.9 assists in 59 games. Moving Butler now would nearly certainly set the franchise back, at least in the short term.

The idea of Butler to the Knicks, of course, draws intrigue with another future free agent: Kyrie Irving. The Wolves will hold their annual media day on Monday, and that should be a lot of fun for everybody. 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.

He helped lead the Timberwolves to the NBA Playoffs past year for the first time in 13 seasons, despite missing significant time with a torn meniscus.
