Jimmy Butler requests trade from Timberwolves, gives shortlist

Jimmy Butler wants out of Minnesota.

Jimmy Butler has requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Butler, 29, has provided the Timberwolves a list of one to three teams with whom he would listen to possible contract extension offers, according to Charania.

The max contract that the Timberwolves could offer Butler could be worth five years and $189 million. If he opted to sign elsewhere, he could receive four years and $140.6 million. In July, Butler reportedly turned down a four-year extension worth $100 million.

There Are No Winners in the Jimmy Butler Saga

Butler is among the possible stars for next year’s free agent class, which could include Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Klay Thompson and Kyrie Irving.

Last season, Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists.
