NBA Star Jimmy Butler Requests Trade Away From Minnesota Timberwolves

This means it's time for some speculation! From Chicago to Minnesota, Butler brought with him an edge, a relenting push, and he's had an ally in Tom Thibodeau, an equally hard-charging coach. How much should the Wolves expect to receive for a 29-year-old who will want to sign an enormous contract next summer, even if that 29-year-old is one of the best 10 or 15 players in the league?

In free agency next summer, Butler can secure a five-year deal worth around $190 million with his prior team or a four-year deal worth around $141 million with a new team. "Therefore a team acquiring Butler would not need to utilize cap space in the 2019-20 season for such a contract". The 29-year old All-Star, who is now slated to become a free agent next summer, can sign a max deal worth four years, $140.6 million.

So despite his request for a trade, it seems likely Butler will remain in Minnesota - and likely will for some time to come. "More to do with contractual matters".

Thibodeau had been planning to meet with Butler in Minnesota about the situation but instead traveled to LA to see him earlier this week. This includes the Nets, Knicks and Clippers.

If Jimmy Butler gets his wish, there's a good chance he will soon be playing in NY.

"They got a little bit exhausted of hearing him extols his own virtues as much as he did".
