Jimmy Butler requests a trade

Karl-Anthony Towns announced Saturday night that he is recommitting to the Minnesota Timberwolves, securing his future there while Jimmy Butler's remains a mystery. The Timberwolves have given Butler permission to miss media day and the start of training camp.

As the Clippers are expected to have have two max-salary contract slots available in free agency, it appears Butler could get some help if it all goes according to his plan.

Trading Butler likely would mean a step back in the upcoming season, which would put Thibodeau's job in jeopardy.

So, we asked Tuff Juice if the Purple & Gold should pick up the phone and call the Wolves. and he thinks it's a no-brainer, saying Butler would perfectly complement King James.

Team owner Glen Taylor, in a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, has expressed his willingness to trade Butler as "he doesn't have the stomach for a dysfunctional season".

Jimmy Butler has requested out of Minnesota for "greener pastures" in the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, or the Los Angeles Clippers.

With the wind in their sails, Liverpool continued to press PSG in search for a second. There are a lot of positive signs coming out of the club at the minute.

It's a double-edged sword for the Minnesota front office. Players will have their photos taken in their uniforms and it could be awkward to see Butler having his picture taken when given his intentions to leave the team. All three of those teams have the cap space to sign Butler next summer, though, which will make it more hard for Minnesota to get proper value back in a deal for the four-time all-star.

The question of whether or not Butler will report on Monday is out there now, too. In July, Butler reportedly turned down Minnesota's four-year extension offer worth $110 million. In his first season with the Wolves past year, the four-time All-Star averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.0 steals per game to help the team improve by 16 wins from the season prior and reach the playoffs for the first time since 2004.

The Knicks have maintained both publicly and privately that they will remain patient in their pursuit of stars - a change from experience - and will not trade first round picks.

Despite being touted as an elite defender and athlete in college at Kansas, Wiggins has regressed since Butler joined the Timberwolves.

Towns and Wiggins are great players and at this point better than Butler.
