Wolves Continue To Seek Return For Jimmy Butler Beyond What Teams Offering

Wolves Continue To Seek Return For Jimmy Butler Beyond What Teams Offering

It was first reported in early July that Butler wanted out of Minnesota and on September 19th, Butler reportedly requested a trade.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are said to be aiming high in trade talks surrounding All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler, even asking the Philadelphia 76ers for guard Ben Simmons in return, according to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer.

This situation appears far from over when it comes to Butler and Timberwolves' upper management.

Butler, who averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game last season, turned down a four-year extension worth approximately $110 million this past summer. He also had a PER of 23.7 and a true shooting rate of 59.0 percent, per Basketball Reference.

That's terrific news for news for Butler - and his bank account. Ahhhhhh, that's the problem. We're going to do what's good for the Timberwolves.

The addition of Butler would likely propel Cleveland to playoff contention.

Does that mean Butler will be headed to Miami after one season in Minnesota?

Now to the logistics of a Cavs trade.

Although, it's not clear if that would be enough to cause the Wolves to pull the trigger on a deal. Why risk trading for a player when he will be a free agent in less than a year? Does losing Jimmy erode the team's confidence in the head coach? Dan Gilbert is looking to make a splash, and he's reportedly been speaking with Wolves owner Glen Taylor about such a deal.

"You never know what someone's going through".

Want your voice heard? Does he want to join a team that is as stacked as the Wolves?

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

Sexton, on the other hand, would probably end up as one of the Timberwolves' key pieces moving forward as their future at point guard. "I feel like he's been doing a great job since the last two days of camp - just demanding the ball, hitting great shots, being real physical - but that's just things we've always counted on him doing".
