Jimmy Butler Requests Trade From Minnesota Timberwolves

20 September, 2018, 10:13 | Author: Lora Ball

Now - with Jimmy Butler reportedly preferring a trade to the Clippers - Wojnarowski appears to be coming around on the Clippers.

Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks are supposedly Butler's preferential destinations if he leaves Minnesota.

If Jimmy Butler gets his wish, there's a good chance he will soon be playing in NY. He's one of the best two-way players in the entire league, capable of hounding elite playmakers with dogged defense and pouring in baskets all in the same game.

Kavanaugh Is Already Reshaping the Supreme Court
GOP leaders threw out those plans and agreed to reconvene next week to hear from Kavanaugh, who denies the allegations, and Ford. Ford said she decided it was her "civic responsibility" to come forward , and now a new hearing will take place.

Woj reports that the Clippers are a "front-runner" for Leonard, making them even more enticing for Butler, who seems determined to contend. 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.

Minnesota's training camp is scheduled to begin September 25, but Butler is reportedly optimistic a deal could be done before camp begins.

The Sixers may want Butler more than he wants them, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't try. Wiggins' brother tweeted "Hallelujah" in response to today's report of Butler's trade request.

Lionel Messi Scores His Eighth Champions League Hat-Trick
Messi scored his second goal only two minutes later when Ivan Rakitic's pass was netted home for Barcelona's third goal. Philippe Coutinho was impressive here and, after a hard debut campaign, Dembele is finding his rhythm, and his place.

Butler impressed last season with the Timberwolves.

Butler might not return the Knicks to prominence immediately, as it depends on Kristaps Porzingis' health, the development of the other young talent in place and another potential big-name acquisition in 2019.

They're both elite defensively and at least very good offensively.

Roberto Firmino a doubt for PSG clash with eye abrasion
Mohamed Salah has said that he believes Liverpool are capable of winning both the Premier League and Champions League this season. His four Premier League goals this term mean the 26-year-old has now scored 17 times in 30 games across all competitions.

Adding a first-round pick may be unnecessary but if needed, would be possible.
