Jimmy Butler is already changing his mind about trade destinations

28 September 2018

Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler is reportedly seeking a contract extension with a different team.

After reportedly telling the Timberwolves that his preferred destinations, in order, were the Clippers, Knicks and Nets, Butler and his agent, Bernie Lee, have informed the Wolves that he would like to be dealt to the Miami Heat. The Miami Heat, who have been among the most aggressive teams pursuing a trade for Butler, find the price too high.

Lacazette, Aubameyang help Arsenal edge past Everton
In a tweet posted later, Shreeves acknowledged he hadn't clearly heard or understood what Lacazette had actually said. Former Arsenal playmaker Nicholas urged Emery to stick with Aubameyang and Lacazette in his starting line up.

If Butler doesn't move and enters free-agency next summer, the Clippers could pitch him the idea of joining forces with Kawhi Leonard. Woj reported last week that the idea of joining Leonard in Los Angeles intrigued Butler. With the group the Celtics have clicking and looking like championship-contenders, there's no reason to trade for Butler right now.

Sources are skeptical of Tom Thibodeau's desire to make a deal. All three teams have long suffered from irrelevance, and now just a week after things were starting to look up, things are tumbling down again. It's been an emotional roller coaster and I believe I speak for all Minnesota Timberwolves' fans when I say that we want something done before the pre-season begins.

But Trump's fear of America being mocked on the global stage runs further back than the 2016 election. Rouhani said that the U.S. should either rectify its mistake or continue with this wrong process.

So far, there's been no team close to willing to meet Thibodeau's massive return for a Butler deal.

Minnesota shipped several of its' young assets to Chicago - Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and the draft pick that became Lauri Markkanen - to acquire Butler.

Jeff Flake is an undecided Republican on the Judiciary Committee who is retiring and has made an enemy of Trump. Maybe Grassley will recover before Ford leaves the hearing, or in today's later questioning of Kavanaugh.

In 59 games for Minnesota last season, Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.0 steals to help the team end a playoff drought that went back to 2004.
