Jimmy Butler asks Wolves to trade him

Jimmy Butler has requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Butler requested a meeting with the head coach to which he requested to be traded. Additionally, the Nets are looking towards the playoffs and Butler would instantly insert Brooklyn into the conversation in the Eastern Conference.

Something, Andrew Wiggins' brother made clear that he loved so much as he celebrated on Twitter upon hearing the news. According to National Basketball Association insider Shams Charania, Butler alerted the front office on Wednesday of his desire to be traded and provided "a list of one to three teams with whom he's open to signing [an] extension". There have been reports that Irving, who can become a free agent next summer if he declines his 2019-20 player option with the Boston Celtics, and Butler want to play together.

Although the Heat isn't on Butler's initial list of preferred destinations, it doesn't completely rule Miami out of the race for the 6-8 forward. Now, he's got only one year left on his deal and may not re-sign with your team if you aren't on his shortlist, which only further hurts his value.




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

The Wolves open training camp next Tuesday.

Sources familiar with the situation told Sporting News that Butler is uncertain about playing with Wiggins - Butler had problems last season with Wiggins, his work ethic and his approach on the defensive end of the floor.
