Jimmy Butler requests trade from Timberwolves

This means it's time for some speculation! And if it's out there Butler would only sign with one to three teams, those other twenty-something teams aren't going to be inclined to give up much in order to acquire a player with no inclination to re-sign.

Trading for Butler now may give NY the advantage when attempting to persuade Irving to leave the Celtics.

And trading for Butler could be enough for a Kawhi Leonard or Kevin Durant to join up at the Lakers. Thibodeau, who coached Butler in Chicago from 2011 until 2015, was tasked with working with former top overall picks Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns to end a postseason drought that reached a league-long 13 seasons.

Because it's the NBA, Jimmy Butler trade demand has led to several fascinating social derivative stories.

Hollis-Jefferson, 23, also fits into that plan.

Butler's impact on the Wolves was easy to see last season. Ben would be the point-forward, Fultz would play the off-ball combo guard role, Butler would be the three-and-D wing, and Embiid would do what he does.

With under a week to go before players report to their respective franchise, a Butler trade could send the start of the National Basketball Association season into a wild place. Of course, a commitment from Butler to re-sign with the team could mitigate the issue.

Timberwolves receive: Tim Hardaway Jr. 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. It may seem a bit surprising at first, because, well, they aren't very good at basketball as now constructed.

But they will now be seeking out teams to offer the best trade package for Butler. Here is the flawless deal to make the Timberwolves pull the trigger. According to ESPN, Butler prefers the Clippers.

In response, Butler posted a video of himself working out. A potential package that does work under those guidelines would be Hardaway, Thomas and a first-round pick.
