Timberwolves sign Towns to extension

Timberwolves sign Towns to extension

Neither Taylor nor Butler appear interested in being paired before then, but it's unclear how quickly it can strike a deal with a team of interest. The Nets and Clippers will both have room for two max contracts next offseason.

Butler will be a free agent next summer and the T-Wolves owner is not prepared to lose him for nothing. Butler turned them down. Last summer the Bulls traded Butler to Minnesota in exchange for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and a lottery pick that eventually became Lauri Markannen. He was hoping to team up Butler with a young core of Karl Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, the 2014 and 2015 first picks respectively.

Butler led Minnesota at 22.2 points per game last season.

None of the team's on Butler's list of preferred destinations would have a serious shot at taking down the Warriors, or even making an Eastern Conference playoff run. He's seen his field goal percentage, free throw percentage, and three-point percentage increase every season; those are great trends. He deserves the extension, and Wolves fans can at least celebrate having one of their All-Stars locked up while the other one remains firmly on the trade market. He took home Rookie of the Year honors that year, and made his first All-Star Game this past season.

Thibodeau has reported told potential Butler suitors that the 29-year-old is not available.

No matter what eventually happens with Jimmy Butler regarding his impending trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Miami Heat again have become part of speculation regarding the next big thing in the National Basketball Association.

Butler's request came at a tricky time for the Timberwolves. A deal between Cleveland and Minnesota would be much more hard to figure out largely due to the number of bad contracts the Cavs have.

It's unclear what kind of return Taylor is looking for in a Butler trade or what other teams are offering.

"If he happens to go to NY, he might be able to influence Kyrie [Irving] to come there or another free agent".

Despite Butler's request, the Minnesota front office has shut down all inquiries toward Butler and is saying they intend to keep him. I think he may get traded before the season starts. In fact, he is so ready for it to end that Taylor is willing to deal Butler himself if needed.
