Jimmy Butler Requests Trade from T-Wolves

Jimmy Butler requested trade from Timberwolves

Jimmy Butler wants out of Minnesota according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. While it was reported in July that Butler could stand to make $190 million if he stayed in Minnesota versus the max of $141 million if he decides to leave. Butler has given the Timberwolves a list of teams that could interest him. Players signed this summer can't be traded until at least December 15 (and, in specific instances, January 15), which greatly reduces Minnesota's flexibility to make the best deal it can for one of the league's elite wing players.

US President Donald Trump To Visit North Carolina As Waterways Rise
The town has largely been cut off by flooding from the still-rising Lumber River, which was expected to crest on Wednesday. Sixteen North Carolina rivers were at major flood stage Tuesday, with an additional three forecasted to peak by Thursday.

The rift between Butler and Timberwolves' All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns, as well as Andrew Wiggins, seems to be a major reason why Butler is likely to be traded before the start of the season. The two have had a close relationship since their shared days together in Chicago, and the Bulls traded Butler and the No. 16 overall pick to the Wolves on draft night in June 2017 for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the seventh overall draft pick that became Lauri Markkanen. He's a terrific player, but as we saw when the Bulls dealt him last summer, the value in return for Butler was far less than what most fans and media had expected. Thibodeau is famously, and relentlessly, competitive, and it is hard to envision him being willing to part with a player who embodies everything he values in a player and whom he traded Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft to acquire. However, Thibs might see this as a last gasp effort to save himself and look for a more immediate fix than one that would benefit this young Minnesota core in the future, since he might not be there to reap those benefits if things don't go well this season. At the time, Thibodeau said he wasn't concerned that perhaps Butler wanted to move on from the franchise.
