Jimmy Butler Has 3 Desired Teams, After Becoming a Free Agent at The End of The Season

Minnesota Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler s reportedly seeking a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Butler can become a free agent at the end of the season and would be willing to re-sign an extension with any of the three teams.


These news comes after tensions in Minnesota, because some reports circulated in the offseason that Jimmy Butler was frustrated with the nonchalant attitudes of Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

There are rumors that Jimmy Butler is interested in joining major markets like New York or Los Angeles as a free agent. The three teams with which Butler would be open to signing an extension are Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers, and New York Knicks, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Los Angeles Lakers were previously connected to Butler, even though they don’t appear to be on his list of preferred teams.

Brooklyn Nets have restocked their picks, adding four this summer alone and building up a cap space cache of between $50 and $70 million.

The question is: would they be willing to “skip a step” during the rebuild for somebody like Butler? His track record speaks for itself.

Butler is a four-time NBA All-Star (2015–2018), a two time All-NBA Third Team player (2017, 2018); a four time member of the All-Defensive Second Team (2014–2016, 2018), the league’s NBA Most Improved Player (2015) and has average 2.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.0 steals per game.

Earlier this summer, Sean Marks said: “We have a year to prepare for summer of 2019.” So, we’ll see if going after Butler is one of his first steps
