Minnesota Timberwolves rebuffing Jimmy Butler trade calls

NBA Free Agency Rumors: Clippers Emerging As Frontrunner To Sign Kawhi Leonard In 2019

Report: LA Clippers are front-runners to sign Kawhi Leonard if he enters free agency

Throughout the upcoming season, there will be conflicting reports about Butler and Leonard.

Because of Thibodeau's uncertain long-term status with ownership, Taylor could have a different view on how to handle the trade request given the possibility that Butler could leave Minnesota in summer free agency without the Wolves getting back the kind of assets that would come with a trade. The move reunited Deng with three other former Bulls in Butler, Derrick Rose, and Taj Gibson.

Florence has killed at least 35 people and left entire towns in North Carolina flooded with muddy, fetid water. The National Weather Service said the river could reach record flood levels late Saturday or early Sunday.

It's also worth noting that Butler didn't include the Lakers on his shortlist of preferred trade destinations, which now include the New York Knicks, the Brooklyn Nets, and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Butler also talked this summer with fellow star Kyrie Irving about potentially teaming up somewhere down the line, either in Boston where Irving now plays or in another city.

Kavanaugh accuser willing to testify in US Senate

Brooklyn has been linked to the shooting guard as a potential suitor in free agency since the July 6 Dwight Howard trade that cleared almost $70 million in cap space for the summer of 2019.

All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns finally agreed to a five-year, $190 million super-maximum extension, according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. "Even if he has to agree to dissolve the (coaching) contract, they'd do that before they go and trade Butler for draft picks". But I could be wrong - which isn't news to anyone - and the Wolves could make their worst roster decision in franchise history by keeping Butler all year. The 29-year-old averaged 21.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game last season while leading the Timberwolves to their first postseason appearance since 2004. Wiggins put together his least efficient season of his National Basketball Association career in 2017-18 and took a career-high 338 attempts from 3-point range (while shooting a mediocre 33 percent mark). "Therefore a team acquiring Butler would not need to utilize cap space in the 2019-20 season for such a contract". He will now be faced with one of the most hard decisions of his front office career as he begins the next phase of the Brooklyn rebuild.
