Jimmy Butler Prefers Clippers For Trade, Downplays Fractured Relationship With Towns

Sep 19, 2018 11:06 PM

Jimmy Butler is most interested in a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers, according to sources.

Butler likes the Clippers' odds of signing a second superstar during the 2019 offseason as they have two max contract slots. Sources say the Clippers are emerging as the frontrunner to sign Kawhi Leonard.

Butler informed Tom Thibodeau he would prefer a trade and plans to leave in free agency. Butler has also prioritized the New York Knicks over the Brooklyn Nets.

Butler is downplaying his fractured relationship with Towns as a reason for wanting a trade, league sources said.

Jimmy Butler Requests Trade From Wolves

Sep 19, 2018 2:28 PM

Jimmy Butler has requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Wolves acquired Butler on draft night in 2017 from the Chicago Bulls.

Butler informed Tom Thibodeau he has no intention of signing a long-term contract with the Wolves as a free agent in 2019.

Butler had hoped the Wolves would sign him to a renegotiate and extension of his contract this offseason, but that would have required the team to cut an enormous amount of salary. The Wolves could only offer a four-year, $110 million extension based on their current cap situation, and Butler understandably turned that down as he could sign a far more lucrative deal next offseason.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Butler would prefer a trade to the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers or New York Knicks. All three teams have cap space to sign Butler outright next offseason as a free agent. Wojnarowski also reports Thibodeau has no interest in dealing Butler for now.

Nick Wiggins, brother of Andrew Wiggins, tweeted “Hallelujah” in response to the news, a post he later deleted.

Adelaide 36ers Seeking Compensation From Brooklyn For Mitch Creek

Aug 9, 2018 3:11 AM

The Adelaide 36ers of the Australian NBL have gone to court in Australia to stop Mitch Creek from signing with the Brooklyn Nets without compensation.

Creek had one year of a three-year deal left to run with the 36ers in the 2018-19 season but triggered his European/NBA out clause to join a top-level German club, Wurzberg. Wurzberg gave Creek its clearance but Adelaide claims it must get its approval as well.

"We are ensuring in the event that he gets a spot on the final roster that there is some sort of compensation (for Adelaide)," 36ers chief executive Ben Kavenagh told The Advertiser.

Former teammate Josh Childress has taken to social media pleading for the 36ers to come to their senses and allow Creek to follow his dream.

The Nets are looking at offering Creek a camp invite.
