Jimmy Butler Prefers Clippers For Trade, Downplays Fractured Relationship With Towns

Jimmy Butler Prefers Clippers For Trade, Downplays Fractured Relationship With Towns

With Butler requesting a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, he is reportedly "most determined" to join the Los Angeles Clippers, but also included the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks on his list of preferred destinations. What does that mean for next summer?

Butler would like to be traded to Knicks, Nets, Clippers or HEAT so he can be the MAN in a big city.

Butler has a $19.8 million player option for 2019-20 that he is likely to decline in order to become a free agent, unless he can secure the trade he is seeking to a team that can offer him a five-year max extension.

Earlier this offseason, Yahoo's Chris Haynes noted Leonard was a high priority for the Clippers.

Butler's impact on the Wolves was easy to see last season.

Luke Shaw suffers head injury in England-Spain match
Having got the assist to put England 1-0 up in the first half, Shaw's return to global football had started brilliantly. But Rashford has added to United's injury concerns after he was replaced late on in the game by Danny Welbeck .

This makes sense considering what we've heard about Leonard and his team desires recently.

The 2018-19 National Basketball Association season has not officially started, but upcoming free agents like Jimmy Butler and Kawhi Leonard are already thinking ahead to July 1, 2019.

According to the reports, Butler met with Minnesota team president and head coach Tom Thibodeau on Wednesday and told Thibodeau he doesn't want to start the season with the Wolves. But the Clippers should ask the same question as the NY teams: What's the rush? It seems Butler is prioritizing long-term financial stability.

Butler is the latest in a line of stars to turn down the opportunity to play with James. However, it's unclear whether Irving is even seriously considering leaving Boston. Jackson suggested that Nick Wiggins shouldn't have sent the tweet since Butler "plays with a lot of heart" and Andrew Wiggins "plays with no heart", with Jackson ending by saying, "Keep that same energy". O'Connor does not think that Gilgeous-Alexander would be included in such a trade.
