Minnesota Timberwolves Star Requests Trade And Desires To Play With Kyrie Irving

It appears Jimmy Butler, the star shooting guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves wants out. Unrepairable issues with head coach/team president Tom Thibodeau and Karl Anthony Towns have led to Butler requesting a trade. Butler has reportedly given a list of 3 teams he’d prefer going to. The Celtics were not one of those teams but Danny Ainge has long coveted Butler, and the rumor mill has been ongoing over the last few years with reports that he and Kyrie Irving want to play together. Butler who will be an unrestricted free agent in 2019 leaves the Timberwolves with little choice. Trade him for something now or let him go in free agency for nothing.
