Heat aggressive in pursuit of Timberwolves' Butler

Just My Take: Jimmy Butler Trade - Basketball Society

The Jimmy Butler sweepstakes escalate with quick deadline

For the Heat, reuniting Butler with Wade could help them return to the postseason.

"Cavs owner Dan Gilbert was seen talking privately with Glen Taylor at NBA Board of Governors meeting on Friday", Wojnarowski reported. Not too long ago, multiple All-Star Jimmy Butler requested a trade which would have him playing for another team this year. And sometimes a player might say something and it might not be the right tone, but it is the right message.

Thibodeau said the Wolves' rookies look good and he's been impressed by their work over the summer so far. To me, the impact he had was great. "The winning was what brought everyone's value up".

Their loose pieces in Kyle Korver, Jordan Clarkson, Cedi Osman, and Larry Nance Jr. simply don't generate enough to warrant an equal trade, making this a likely impasse to get a deal done.

As some soldiers crawled about as gunfire rang out, others shielded civilians while women and children fled for their lives. President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday accused an unnamed USA -allied regional country of supporting the perpetrators.

The problem is that Butler wants out and Karl-Anthony Towns was rumored to not want to sign his extension unless Butler was sent away and Towns literally signed his extension a few nights ago (meaning we can all sleep somewhat better). Butler's interest the Knicks may be overstated, according to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today, as he wants to win now as opposed to later. After LeBron James' departure there's obviously a glaring need at the small forward position, and Butler would be a big time addition for any franchise, especially one that could use another star player alongside Kevin Love.

Sunday was full of Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Jimmy Butler news that could be summed up as mass hysteria, we were involved in that craziness as well. But he said Butler is "a top-10 player in the league", and he holds considerable trade value. "That was made clear".

Thibodeau and Layden are excited about the team they have in the building.
