Jimmy Butler Trade Saga: Dan Gilbert, Cavaliers Reportedly Very Interested

Enes Kanter Jimmy Butler

Did Lauri Markkanen send a message to the Timberwolves after Jimmy Butler’s trade demand?

"On June 25th, 2015, I was drafted to and committed to the Minnesota Timberwolves", Towns wrote in an Instagram post.

With training camp just around the corner, the OKC Thunder stand to benefit from the inevitable trade of Minnesota Timberwolves All Star Jimmy Butler.

Tom Thibodeau, the team's head coach and president of basketball operations, and Scott Layden, its general manager, are both scheduled to speak to reporters in a news conference-style setting. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski says that at the NBA Board of Governers meeting Taylor told prospective spirits for Butler to contact him directly if they can not get past general manager Scott Layden.

But Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and Wolves' owner Taylor were seen speaking at the recent NBA Board of Governors meeting, for what it's worth alongside a report Taylor told interested teams to contact him directly about a Butler trade.

Butler led Minnesota at 22.2 points per game last season. Thibodeau wants to keep Butler this season in hopes of making a deep playoff run after losing in the first round to the Rockets past year.

But Carter believes the presence of James on the Lakers means Butler will not be able to get his wish at being the main main.

Towns was the No. 1 overall pick by Minnesota in 2015.

Trump claims China rebuilt itself with money drained out of US
China is predictably angry at the fact that Trump is derailing their gravy train after picking the USA apart for so many decades. In its trade conflict with China, too, the USA has put increasing pressure on China to accept its insatiable demands.
