Kings, Suns Willing to Help Facilitate Jimmy Butler Trade

Throughout trade talks, Minnesota Timberwolves president and coach Tom Thibodeau has continued to try and recruit Butler to ease off his trade demand and return to practice with the team, league sources said. That came in a report from Marc Stein of the New York Times in which he cited National Basketball Association sources.

Jimmy Butler #23 of the Minnesota Timberwolves. A Heat spokesman told the Sun Sentinel recently they would not address speculation, but Miami looks like a major player in the Butler sweepstakes. Although Miami has stepped forward as the front runner for Butler, there was a time last week that the Clippers were seen as the favorite to land the All-Star. "Butler can become a free agent in July, and teams recognize that he's already asked for a trade from Minnesota and a coach he has enjoyed a long, prosperous and close relationship with - and Butler could be a risk to leave them in summer free agency". The Kings are without their first-round draft pick in 2019 and uniquely positioned to leverage that cap space into, at a minimum, a future first-round pick and maybe more as part of a Butler blockbuster. "That's what our job is". Thibodeau now may be looking to restock the cupboard, and won't rush to make a bad deal for a player he believes is among the NBA's best.
