Jimmy Butler Prefers Clippers For Trade, Downplays Fractured Relationship With Towns

  • Report: Timberwolves' Butler requests trade

Last season, Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists.

The Clips will be able to offer two max contracts to free agents next summer.

Word came out on Wednesday that Jimmy Butler is seeking a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Training camp for all National Basketball Association teams gets underway next week, with the Heat set to open up next Tuesday, Sept. 25.

But it appears as though the 29-year-old couldn't agree to playing in Minnesota for one more season.

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

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz, who are serving sentence in Adiala Jail, have also been informed about the demise of Begum Kulsoom. They returned to face corruption convictions ahead of July's election, leaving the ailing Ms Nawaz in London.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN later reported those three preferred destinations include the Los Angeles Clippers and both New York teams, the New York Knicks and the Nets.

Kawhi Leonard is yet to play a competitive game for the Toronto Raptors but there is already serious talk about him leaving the team next summer in free agency.

Butler's unhappiness is just the latest issue to befall Minnesota over the past few months.

There have also been questions about Butler's relationship with younger teammates Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns.

Wojnarowski, citing sources, said Butler could expand his list based on the willingness of the Timberwolves and other teams to negotiate a trade. The NBA has steadily moved away from the "emperor coach" model of having one man overseeing all aspects of the organization in recent years, and only two - Thibodeau and Gregg Popovich in San Antonio - remain in the league. While both NY and Brooklyn will also have the cap space to sign another star alongside Butler next offseason, it's particularly newsworthy that Los Angeles is apparently the front-runner for Leonard next summer.
