Jimmy Butler requests trade

Postby [Q] on Thu Sep 20, 2018 8:34 am

It was inevitable. He has issues with KAT who is also up for an extension and he is becoming a free agent next summer. Problem is, like Kawhi, the teams he wants to go to have cap space to sign him in the summer so trading for him makes no sense

It seems that much like Kawhi, he's proving to be more difficult and selfish than originally thought. I know I've criticised GarPax for trading him away - mostly because it felt like they overpaid to do so, and greedily, it would've been nice if they could've kept their pick in addition to the one they got for him - but the more time passes, the more it appears to have been the right move, at least in terms of moving on from him.

Butler is coming off as a total douche. There seemed to be issues with Rose during the Bulls time, then the Wade/Butler vs Rondo and the young ones and now this...doesn't really paint a favorable picture.

Thibs wanting to sign Deng to the Wolves also isn't really a good move. He's not doing too well with that team.

If he ended up in NY it would be cool, it's been such a long time since that team has been relevant. He'd be back east, KP over there and Kyrie could follow.

Off season is the best time of season with the Warriors basically Thanos'ing the playoffs.

That would be a typical Knick move, going for the quick fix.

hola amigos. is it time to come out of the cave?

i speculate that Silver strategically has the players announce their news to always keep the NBA in the headlines...

gotta love wiggins bro and stephen jax getting in on this.. and then markkanen dropping in with the troll job.

does Thibs fire himself for initially making a then considered great trade and for giving Wiggins a max contract?

Butler seems to get along very well with Irving. So maybe he's not a total douche, even if he may very well believe the world is flat too.

what a mess in Minny. KAT forgot how to post up in the playoffs. Wiggins regressed. And now Buckets asking out

Thanos-ing. Well done

There's a story going around that Jimmy B (allegedly) slept with KAT's girlfriend, and that's the cause of all the friction.

Money & women - the two things that can wreck team harmony.

So you're saying the Butler did it? :rimshot:

Didn't that contribute to the fallout between The Three Js in Dallas back in the mid 90s?

Those may be rumors, but Tony Parker and Brent Barry's wife was confirmed.

Jason Kidd may be a wife beater but he's no snake. It's always bros before hoes with him.

Taylor has demanded that a trade happens soon, so a team will be lucking out and be getting a great player soon

Toni Braxton, that's right. I forgot that it was her that was involved in the rumour. Anyway, that's interesting to hear the actual story all these years later, thanks for posting that. (Y)

As for the situation with Butler, it sounds like it's going to be a messy split, and someone could indeed be getting him at a bargain price. Of course, while they might be getting a bargain in terms of his talents, it seems they're getting a whole lot of baggage as well, and that could be costly.

Deadline set by Taylor is Tuesday. Apparently the Heat are in the mix which is a good move to try to keep him long term since he is friends with Wade. Otherwise, most teams should be wary of a one year rental

It's a farewell tour for Wade, though. Perhaps Wade can convince him to stick around, but he wouldn't be playing with Butler beyond this season.

Actually, it looks like he's open to at least considering sticking around in Miami beyond this season: https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/2 ... lt-To-Heat

Jimmy Butler and his agent have informed the Minnesota Timberwolves he prefers a trade to the Miami Heat.

Butler initially had the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets on his wish list.

Miami would be a great landing spot for Butler... if Wade and his farewell tour isn't there.

be fun to watch Coach Spo grit that team to wins.

He reportedly played with the third-team squad and beat the starters, prompting him to taunt Scott Layden. He yelled "You fucking need me! You can't win without me!"

Which I guess is true based on how hard they tanked after his injury at the end of the season

I'm sure that'll make him much easier to trade.

That was an OG move he did in practice lol. Summoned the spirit of Jordan and Kobe to entirely dominate that practice.

According to Butler it all started with KAT posturing so the former obliged, reportedly defended KAT in the post and all KAT could do was pass the ball loool. Wolves are so soft, KG turning in his grave.

the owner should be fired. he gave the green light on the max contract to wiggins. now the big contract to KAT. i like that guy but he's soft. butler is a crazy competitive bastard. instead of replying on social media Kat and/or Wiggins should bring the big balls on the court
