Jimmy Butler Doesn't Want to Play With LeBron

Report Jimmy Butler would sign extension with Knicks Nets Clippers

So on June 22, 2017, with the Timberwolves on the clock - though the trade between the Bulls and Timberwolves for Jimmy Butler had been agreed upon - they "selected" Markkanen. Butler is reportedly not interested in playing alongside James. But will the Minnesota Timberwolves let him?

He has requested a trade away from Minnesota following a meeting with team president and head coach Tom Thibodeau. Wiggins remains signed with the Timberwolves through 2023.

Moreover, despite reaching the playoffs, there were reports about Butler being unhappy by the work ethic of the younger Timberwolves.

Butler is seeking a max contract for five years and $190 million.

I know there are some peripheral things to be cautious about when it comes to Jimmy Butler.

Ed Davis signed with Brooklyn on a one-year deal on July 23, meaning he can not be traded before December 15, per Larry Coon's NBA Salary Cap FAQ.

By this I mean, among other things, the readiness to cooperate closely in the area of security and foreign policy. They made that choice, ' she said.

Not only did Jimmy Butler demand a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, but news broke that the Los Angeles Clippers were his preferred destination. It seems Butler is prioritizing long-term financial stability. Officially, he was. National Basketball Association draft-night trades, for whatever reason, don't officially process until later in the night. Minnesota should compete next season no matter how this Butler situation unfolds.

Andrew Wiggins' brother, Nick, tweeted "Hallelujah," in response to the report.

Wojnarowski, citing sources, said Butler could expand his list based on the willingness of the Timberwolves and other teams to negotiate a trade.

The most baffling detail to come out of prelim discussions is that he prefers the Clippers to the Lakers in choosing, partly because they can offer max deals to more than one pending free agent.

All of this also ratchets up the pressure on Thibodeau, who was already seen as being in some hot water before Wednesday's developments.

And now, instead of being asked about how they can build off last season's successes, the only questions anyone in the organization likely will receive, beginning at media day Monday, will be about the franchise's future - and specifically the futures of Butler, Towns, Wiggins and Thibodeau.
