Wolves' Asking Price For Jimmy Butler "Too High"

Wolves' Asking Price For Jimmy Butler

Butler is understood to have requested a trade from the Timberwolves after becoming disillusioned with life in Minnesota.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Timberwolves are asking for proven veterans, future assets, cap space and prospects. Teams believe Thibodeau is making counterproposals that he knows franchises will never accept, according to the report. Meanwhile, there have been numerous reports that Thibodeau and his assistant, general manager Scott Layden, have been dragging their feet on trading Butler and ignoring an directive from owner Glen Taylor to get a trade done.

So perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Cavs remain one of the team's interested in acquiring All-Star guard/forward Jimmy Butler, who requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves early last week. With the group the Celtics have clicking and looking like championship-contenders, there's no reason to trade for Butler right now.

Does that mean Butler will be headed to Miami after one season in Minnesota?

Thibodeau has expressed interest in keeping Butler, but the feeling reportedly is not mutual. The idea that the Timberwolves gave up too much for Butler isn't preposterous, because though none are as talented as the four-time All-Star, all three players gave shown at least one elite ability in their careers. It'll be a challenge - although not impossible - to get any Butler deal done without a third team.

The Heat enter '18-19 with a almost identical roster as last season, when they went 44-38 to secure the No. 6 seed.

Butler is set to earn just over $19 million next season.

He had previously said that the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers were at the top of his list.
