Sources Jimmy Butler requests trade from Timberwolves

After weeks of seriously contemplating his future in Minnesota, Butler requested a trade from the Timberwolves and informed Thibodeau of his decision on Tuesday in a meeting in Los Angeles, league sources told The Athletic.

But after dealing several promising young pieces for Butler last offseason, there's pressure on Thibodeau and Co.to recoup value in a potential trade of Butler, should they indeed choose to make one.

Before Butler, the Timberwolves hadn't sniffed the postseason since Kevin Garnett was in his prime.

Butler turned down a four-year contract extension from the Timberwolves following the season. If reports are true that Jimmy is looking ahead to the summer of 2019 to choose what team will get his services, it would be in the Wolves best interest to trade their superstar now.

The Heat will host its "Red, White & Pink" scrimmage on September 29 at 10 a.m.at FAU Arena to close out training camp.

Butler's impact on the Wolves was easy to see last season. His three preferred destinations are the Brooklyn Nets, the Los Angeles Clippers, and the New York Knicks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Wolves will hold their annual media day on Monday, and that should be a lot of fun for everybody.
