This Super-Team Makes ‘Strong Push’ For Jimmy Butler Trade

For that reason, he's glad he's not in teammate Jimmy Butler's position.

With this asking price in mind, it's hard to imagine what the Rockets could possibly offer the Timberwolves for Butler without dismantling their team.

Head coach Tom Thibodeau is probably Butler's biggest fan in the world and has coached him on two different teams. Then, a three-team trade seemed likely, which may still be the case.

However, Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe of ESPN.com report the Timberwolves' asking price for Butler is too much for teams, including the Heat.

After reports surfaced that the disgruntled Butler requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, rumors began to fly with speculation where the four-time NBA All-Star might end up.

It's unclear what, exactly, the Rockets would offer for Butler.

Jimmy Butler apparently has altered his thinking when it comes to where he would like to be traded.

Minnesota would surely receive a first-round pick, too, but it would be late in the round and not all that attractive.

The Wolves are seeking a combination of veterans, top prospects, future assets and cap relief.

Butler was given permission to skip the team's media day on Monday.

Miami remains an attractive destination, with Josh Richardson, Goran Dragic, Kelly Olynyk, and Hassan Whiteside all players that could potentially come back to Minnesota.

On Wednesday it was reported that Butler prefers to be traded to the Miami Heat, who were reportedly aggressively pursuing him.

Yet again, we've seen Houston's general manager Daryl Morey pull off some insane deals in the past, and they've paid off big time too, such as the one with the Oklahoma City Thunder for James Harden.
