Wolves focused on trading Jimmy Butler, report says

Jimmy Butler has Knicks Nets on three-team trade list

Marks has shown poise and moxie throughout his time as the Nets general manager.

So, after the Butler news came out on Wednesday...

A year and a half ago, the Chicago Bulls and star wing man Jimmy Butler were at a crossroads.

Nonetheless, the four-time All Star wants out of Minnesota.

National Basketball Association writers have been having a field day at the Wolves' expense over the last couple of weeks.

The team recently signed Luol Deng to a one-year contract for the veteran minimum. Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson and Jamal Crawford all played last season and team was being dubbed as "TimberBulls" in social media. Now the most prominent player of the group wants out. Thibodeau's initial reaction to the trade request was that he wanted to win now, and trading Butler would nearly assuredly bring back a package that would diminish the Timberwolves' chances in the short term, league sources said. Defense was a also major key point in Thibodeau's first season with the Wolves that led him to bring in players who played under him before.

Even if the Lakers were willing to include Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram in a trade, it would have to be a pretty complex trade likely involving three teams. He will now be faced with one of the most hard decisions of his front office career as he begins the next phase of the Brooklyn rebuild. Here's hoping they get something of value that can help this year without tying up too much cap space next summer.

TSN's Josh Lewenberg notes that if the Toronto Raptors wanted to make a play for Butler, it would be hard because they would have to send out at least $15.8 million in salary and can not trade a first-rounder until 2021's selection. The trio of Russell, Wiggins and Towns would give the Timberwolves a very talented core of players all under the age of 24.
