The Timberwolves Just Blew Their Best Chance to Trade Jimmy Butler

Heat-Butler talks sizzled, fizzled, with Richardson reportedly in play Report: Jimmy Butler blockbuster trade was close but fell apart between Wolves, Heat
Frederick Owens | 09 October, 2018, 11:58

Per ESPN and the great Adrian Wojnarowski, the Timberwolves had a deal ready to go before they shared Butler's injury history with Miami.

An 11th-hour decision to nix a trade with the Miami Heat leaves Jimmy Butler in the unwanted limbo position for at least another day or two.

Teams typically share medical information only when on the verge of an agreement.

Minnesota owner Glen Taylor and Miami owner Micky Arison had become involved in the talks and there was hope that a trade call with the league office could finalize a deal soon, until Minnesota moved to amend the framework of the trade and talks collapsed Saturday, league sources said.

However, the Heat retracted their initial offer after Minnesota tried for a "sweeter return" for the 29-year-old. The Los Angeles Clippers, one of the three landing spots Butler initially preferred, were reportedly in talks with Minnesota, along with the Houston Rockets.

Thibodeau has said Butler's situation is "fluid" and has repeated many times over the last few weeks that he will make a deal as long as a good deal materializes.

Miami's believed willingness to pay Butler something in the neighborhood of a five-year, $190 million maximum contract next summer has played a part in Butler's enthusiasm in pursuing a deal there. Butler remains away from the team officially as he rehabilitates his surgically-repaired right hand.

Butler has yet to report to the Timberwolves since his trade demand, but has been working out at the team's facilities, with the team listing him as rehabilitating from July wrist surgery. He also said that there are no other serious trade talks at this point for Butler.
