Jimmy wants out of Minnesota.
Can't blame him.


@ShamsCharania
Jimmy Butler has requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, league sources tell me and @JonKrawczynski. Butler has given Minnesota a list of one-to-three teams with whom he's open to signing extension, in anticipation of trade.

I love these guys.  Sign contracts, are unhappy so want a trade, but give their team "one to three" teams that they want to play for.

Guess what, that's what free agency is for.  Teams will, and should, do what is in the best interest of the team, whether that be keeping the player or shipping him to Oklahoma City.

Prima donna.

For the record, the list Butler provided is a list of teams he'd be willing to sign an extension with before free agency. That list isn't preventing Minnesota from trading him anywhere they deem in their best interests. But realistically, Minnesota is going to get much more return in a trade with one of those teams than a team Butler won't sign with immediately.

Also, let's be clear ... Jimmy never signed a contract with Minnesota and never indicated he would sign there after his current contract expires. He could just as easily play out his contract and walk at season's end, with Minnesota getting zero in return.
They knew this was a possibility when they traded for him.

So, in conclusion, Butler is doing the Minnesota a favor by asking for a trade now and providing this list.

Not only that, but Jimmy hasn't said anything publicly that I can tell.

All I care about is that DJO gets a roster opportunity with the T Wolves. Jimmy will get his money either way.

Didn't Jimmy in some ways force Chicago's hand to trade him?  Not straight up ask for a trade, but didn't he butt some heads in that locker room as well?

Wade and Jimmy didn't seem to get along with Hoiberg style of coaching and Bulls were sort of dismantling the team. Wade had also said that if they traded Jimmy he wanted out and that happened eventually.

Not really. He was outspokenly critical of Hoiberg one time (and he wasn't wrong), but repeatedly said he wanted to stay in Chicago. The Bulls traded him because they had nothing around him. With him, they were going to be stuck in 6-10th place every year, aka NBA hell.

JFB works extremely hard at his craft, He'll butt heads with those who don't.

I'd buy that if it was just one locker room. If the recent rumors are true and it's happening in another locker room I start to buy it less.

And the wisdom to know the difference.

I'm guessing the T-Wolves may regret the 5yr-$147 million contract they gave Wiggins.
Poor defensively. 
Below average 3pt shooter (33% career). 
Mediocre mid-range game (37% 10-16 feet), (41% 3-10 feet)


Jimmy is looking out for his next contract.  As a free agent next summer he can max at 4 years @ $140 million with a different team.
If he is traded and resigns with that new team he's eligible for 5 years @ $190 million.

Has to be a top 5 worst contract in the league at this point. They should have traded him for whatever picks they could get in his contract year. A dumb team like the Bobcats or the Nets or Cavs would have paid something stupid for him.

Bobcats are so dumb that they haven't been the Bobcats for several years!

But yes, I also think that is one of the worst contracts in sports. Not quite as bad as Joe Mauer's, though!

The Cavs actually look pretty smart for trading Wiggins for Kevin Love.

That's...simply insane. 

$38M/year.  Particularly when you think the homeless kid from Trumbull could end up making that.
