​Let's just say ​the Tuesday meeting between Jimmy Butler and Minnesota Timberwolves head coach/team president Tom Thibodeau did not go well.


​According to NBA insider Shams Charania, Butler has requested a trade from the Timberwolves, and provided a list of team(s) that he'd sign a contract extension with.

​​Thibodeau has reportedly been resistant to the idea of trading Butler, who he coached all the way back in his days with the Chicago Bulls. The deadline to move Butler is going to have to be a fast one, as media day is this upcoming Monday and training camp kicks off on Tuesday.

​​The writing appeared to be on the wall the past few months with Butler and Minnesota. Butler has been very vocal about the idea of playing on the same team as Kyrie Irving once entering free agency next summer.


Reports have surfaced claiming Butler has grown weary of the "nonchalant" behavior of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. However, that doesn't appear to be the case. 

The decision to move on from Minnesota stems from Butler's contract demands, of which the team appears to be unwilling to pay, ​considering their plans to sign Towns to an extension.

​​Just when we thought the craziness of the NBA offseason was over, we've now been pulled back in.
