Jimmy Butler wants to be traded to Heat, report says

Jimmy B

According to recent reports, the Heat have been aggressively pursuing a deal with Minnesota to acquire Butler.

The Minnesota Timberwolves continue to seek a trade return for Jimmy Butler beyond what any team is willing to offer. The Los Angeles Clippers have been somewhat quiet to this point, but with their assets and the interest Butler has in playing there, it wouldn't be surprising to see them make a late push.

That has meant he's asking for quality veterans along with top prospects, draft picks and/or cap relief, according to several reports.

Butler shocked the National Basketball Association last week when he requested that the Timberwolves - who just a year earlier landed the superstar in a draft-night deal with the Chicago Bulls - trade him once again.

Minnesota's counter was a non-starter for Heat president Pat Riley, league sources said.

Asked about dealing with fractious relationships with players, the Southampton boss said: "It's not easy". They were also unhappy to see their differences come out in public in the video footage.

Head coach Tom Thibodeau is probably Butler's biggest fan in the world and has coached him on two different teams.

They can't trade their best player in Kevin Love, a five-time All-Star who is an elite shooter and rebounder in the frontcourt, until January 23rd.

The Suns traded Brandon Knight to the Houston Rockets in late August, leaving them with no starting-caliber point guard on the roster. He was traded to the Timberwolves before last season. That's especially the case because other teams are trying to call up the Wolves and make a deal, and if you believe Mark Berman of Fox 26, one such squad is the Houston Rockets.

A trade to Miami would reunite Butler with Dwyane Wade, with whom he was teammates and close friends with for one year in Chicago.
