Jimmy Butler wants to be traded to Heat, report says

Jimmy Butler wants to be traded to Heat, report says

Rumors have been flying fast and furious all week, with the field of interested teams reaching almost half the league late last weekend.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Minnesota could trade Butler to the Heat in exchange for Goran Dragic, while the Suns would land Jeff Teague from the Timberwolves as well.

Butler shocked the National Basketball Association last week when he requested that the Timberwolves - who just a year earlier landed the superstar in a draft-night deal with the Chicago Bulls - trade him once again.

The Timberwolves veteran recently shared how he was caught off-guard by Butler's demands, given how Gibson thought there was harmony in Minnesota's camp.

Teams pursuing Butler remain skeptical of Thibodeau's desire to execute a trade, believing that he's making counterproposals that Thibodeau knows teams will never accept.

"He requested a trade and we're going to honor his request", Thibodeau said. He was present only for medical evaluations.

The New York Times' Marc Stein tweeted that South Beach is Butler's preferred destination. Thibodeau said Butler would be away from the team for at least a week because he's still rehabbing from offseason surgery on his right hand. Butler has yet to attend a Timberwolves workout and wants to sit out until the franchise executes a trade for him.

Several other teams are rumoured to be interested in Butler as well, but now another team is reportedly interested that could become the new frontrunner.

Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.0 steals per game last season, and he could take Miami from being a fringe playoff team to a contender.

In July, Butler reportedly turned down Minnesota's four-year extension offer worth $110 million.
