Timberwolves' Asking Price for Jimmy Butler Is Too High

Timberwolves' Asking Price for Jimmy Butler Is Too High

Though one of the most talented all-around players in the league, Butler is 29-years-old and his fit within locker rooms is starting to be questioned.

All of this is to say that while Butler may want to play for Miami - which really is the flawless fit for both sides - Minnesota can throw a monkey wrench in that plan pretty easily by doing what they want to do, not what makes the most sense for everyone involved.

If Butler doesn't move and enters free-agency next summer, the Clippers could pitch him the idea of joining forces with Kawhi Leonard. Woj reported last week that the idea of joining Leonard in Los Angeles intrigued Butler.

"One thing about everybody who's here, from the coaching staff, players, everybody's familiar with each other, we've been through a lot together, so we've just got to keep trying".

In addition to its satellite TV service, Sky offers a video streaming option called Now TV, which has about 2 million subscribers. What does this mean for Sky customers? It would also represent a victory in Comcast's chequered history of deal making.

According to reports, Teague is not the only Minnesota point guard that Phoenix is interested in, as the Suns have also been looking out for Tyus Jones. Thibodeau said Butler would be away from the team for at least a week because he's still rehabbing from offseason surgery on his right hand.

"I'm just trying to stay out of - out of sight, out of mind, that's why I haven't been saying nothing too insane in the media because I'm trying to focus on what I need to focus on, and that's to have a productive year. I've been in the same position where you're just misunderstood so you never know what someone's going through". In exchange for the then three-time NBA All-Star, the Bulls received Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and the #7 pick - Lauri Markkanen.

In 59 games for Minnesota last season, Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.0 steals to help the team end a playoff drought that went back to 2004.
