Jimmy Butler request trade (Knicks one of his preferred destinations)

Minnesota's Jimmy Butler has three preferred destinations for a trade, league sources tell ESPN: The Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks. Those three teams have max cap space to sign Butler as a free agent in July.


Jimmy Butler has requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources tell me and @JonKrawczynski. Butler has given Minnesota a list of one-to-three teams with whom he's open to signing extension, in anticipation of trade.

basically I only like jimmy if hes the second star. I have kyrie in tier 2 as well but higher on my list than butler due to/age

We need a tier 1 player come to ny kd basically someone who can be the best player on a title team

Kyrie
Frank
Kd
Knox
Kp/mitch

Nets could counter with an offer of demarre, dinwiddie and rhj. Would that be enough? Questionable.

When I heard the news, I immediately started concocting scenarios built around offering THJ. But there's no way your proposal works. For one, that salaries don't fall anywhere near the vicinity of CBA rules. But even if the CBA allowed it, there's no way Minny takes on Noah's albatross contract (and headache) while succumbing to Butler and catering to his destination preference.

I'd offer THJ, Mudiay, and Ron Baker for Butler and an old expiring contract like Toliver (he can't be traded until December, but you get the idea).

It's so funny that this comes a day or so after Mills promises not to revisit trading away assets for someone we can outright sign in the near future. Be very careful of the promises you make. They have a funny way of testing you after they are made. :popcorn:

Agh, just looked at minny's cap numbers. They grossly overpaid Wiggins, taj and deng. They need to move deng to extend KAT under/near the apron; he's gonna get bundled with butler.

As long as it doesn't include Knox, KP, Frank or Mitch then I'm for it.
No longer sick and tired that Kurt wasn't hired.

Butler wants a trade to a team that plans to sign him to a five-year, maximum contract that could be worth $190 million in the summer, and his list could expand based upon the Timberwolves' and rival teams' willingness to negotiate a trade for him, league sources said.

For now, however, Timberwolves president and coach Tom Thibodeau has no interest in trading Butler and wants to try and return to the playoffs with him in the lineup, league sources said.

Didnt Mills/Perry just say something along the lines of not trading assets for players that they can acquire later in free agency?
