Jimmy Butler Most Keen On Joining The Los Angeles Clippers

Jimmy Butler Most Keen On Joining The Los Angeles Clippers

However, don't count out Kawhi's current team, the Raptors, out of the picture yet, as they're already doing everything they can in order to retain the two-time Defensive Player of the Year.

This is Butler's last season under contract in Minnesota.

"At 6'8", Butler is one of the best two-way wings in the National Basketball Association. Butler has no provisions in his contract that would give him the leverage to say "this doesn't work for me", meaning Minnesota can do whatever this wants.

Timberwolves president-coach Tom Thibodeau reportedly doesn't want to grant Jimmy Butler's trade request, which mostly sounds like Thibodeau trying to preserve leverage. It was in that meeting that Butler expressed a desire to be traded, telling Thibodeau that he does not intend to sign a long-term extension with the Wolves next summer.

Another reason is the possibility that he could convince superstar point guard Kyrie Irving to return to the Cavs amidst a report from Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times that the two friends were interested in teaming up.

Aspirin does not benefit older people
But for older, healthy people, "the risks outweigh the benefits for taking low-dose aspirin", Murray says. Their health was re-examined after around five years.

"Minnesota is resistant to immediately honor the trade request, especially given Thibodeau's tenuous status with owner Glen Taylor, league sources said". We'll see if Butler is wearing a different jersey by then - and if Minnesota's drama spirals further out of control.

Jackson responded to the since-deleted tweet by talking about how the former No. 1 overall pick should have reacted to what his brother said.

Irving, who will be a highly sought-after free agent next summer, will be considering his options next summer. The NBA has steadily moved away from the "emperor coach" model of having one man overseeing all aspects of the organization in recent years, and only two - Thibodeau and Gregg Popovich in San Antonio - remain in the league. Now he also must balance the possibility of Butler leaving, and how the franchise should best handle that. The Wolves will hold their annual media day on Monday, and that should be a lot of fun for everybody.

Those questions won't stop until the season ends - or until the Timberwolves answer them with actions.
