Glen Taylor talked about his agreement with Jimmy Butler that he would play for the Minnesota Timberwolves as they attempt to fulfill his trade request.
Taylor was asked whether Butler could eventually remain with the Wolves and re-sign with the team in the offseason.
“That is not part of the plan, but as you know, things can change,” Taylor said. “But that is not what we have agreed to.”
Taylor said he's committed to trading Butler.
“Yes. I think [Butler has] made it very clear that he would not re-sign with us at the end of the year and therefore it is in our interest to get a trade so that we can get a player or two to replace him that helps our team,” Taylor said.
