Andrew Wiggins' Brother Celebrates Jimmy Butler Requesting A Trade (TWEET)

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.

Jon Krawczynski and Shams Charania of The Athletic say Butler has given the Timberwolves a list of one to three teams with which he is open to signing a contract extension. The clubs in contention: The Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers. All three teams have cap space to sign Butler outright next offseason as a free agent.

The Sixers may want Butler more than he wants them, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't try.

Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford moves, hires security
The delay makes it increasingly hard for Kavanaugh to win approval by October 1, when the new session of the Supreme Court begins. While that's the biggest problem with the Wall Street Journal editorial on Ford and Kavanaugh, it's not the only one.

According to multiple reports from throughout the summer, Butler and teammate Karl-Anthony Towns do not see eye to eye, but it remains to be seen if that played a role in his reported trade request. Faried is included mostly to make the salaries match - he could provide some energy and rebounding this season or the Wolves could try to flip his expiring contract before the trade deadline. Charania adds that Butler made his desire to be traded clear to Thibodeau during their meeting.

But still, plenty of players get traded to teams that aren't on their "list".

Jimmy Butler wants out of Minnesota. And if the Sixers are able to acquire Butler without giving up Markelle Fultz, a core of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Fultz, and Butler would certainly work. The T-Wolves also received a first-round pick in the deal.
