Wiggins responds to Jimmy Butler, Stephen Jackson

Jimmy Butler requests trade with three teams in mind

Those teams would each have the cap space to give Butler a maximum contract extension come next summer.

The question for the Clippers: Do they trade for Butler now or wait to try signing both stars in free agency next summer?

The never-ending drama that is the National Basketball Association offseason continued on Wednesday when The Athletic reported that All-Star guard Jimmy Butler requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Clippers have two max contract slots available in July, and are emerging as a front-runner for Toronto's All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard when he becomes a free agent in July, league sources said.

Jimmy Butler has decided he'd like to play elsewhere.

It's destinations at opposite ends of the country, with the Nets and Knicks a train ride away from each other. ESPN's Adiran Wojnarowski reported that Butler is "most determined to find a way" to the Clippers.

Just when it seemed things had stabilized with the Minnesota Timberwolves, turbulence appears to be rearing its head again.

Butler informed coach Tom Thibodeau of his request on Tuesday, but Thibodeau has been resistant to the idea, according to The Athletic.

Love had been an impressive leader early in the post-LeBron years but he's not a good enough defensive fit with KAT to make them a desirable pair.

Because it's the NBA, Jimmy Butler trade demand has led to several fascinating social derivative stories.

But there's no guarantee the Knicks sign him next summer. A potential package that does work under those guidelines would be Hardaway, Thomas and a first-round pick.
