Jimmy Butler: Trade talks COLLAPSE, Timberwolves tried sneaky request with Heat

Jimmy Butler: Trade talks COLLAPSE, Timberwolves tried sneaky request with Heat

According to a report from ESPN and other sources, the Heat have received Butler's medical records from the Timberwolves and appeared to be on the verge of a deal until that agreement fell through. It would have sent the Timberwolves' disgruntled star to Miami as part of a trade package, according to Woj.

Timberwolves head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau reportedly was trying to convince Butler to stay in Minnesota for one final season, but team owner Glen Taylor now is pushing the front office to find a deal for the 29-year-old, per Wojnarowski.

Butler made it clear to Minnesota that he wants to be traded and that Miami was among his preferred destinations. The talks could re-start, but the breakdown means it will likely take more time for the Wolves to deal Butler and the ambiguity around his status could remain into the regular season.

Butler has one year left on his contract, but the belief is that he won't be signing long-term in Minnesota, and many reports have said that he's asked to be traded. Thanks to Butler making his intentions to leave Minnesota known, the Wolves have lost some leverage - everybody knows they need to make a deal pretty soon.

Butler has been away from the team since being given permission to skip media day and has been rehabbing from offseason surgery on his right hand.

Minnesota must trade him while they have the chance. The Clippers and Nets never found traction in conversations with Minnesota, and the Knicks never called, sources said. As the Wolves traveled out West last week, Butler has been working out at the team's facility and has been in regular contact with teammates.
