Wolves Willing to Trade Jimmy Butler Anywhere But Houston

The Minnesota Timberwolves are willing to trade disgruntled superstar Jimmy Butler, and will trade him to any team except for the Houston Rockets, according to the New York Times’ Marc Stein.

Per Stein’s report:

The Wolves, in short, want to trade Butler pretty much anywhere but Houston. But if the Rockets’ offer between now and then is indeed the best offer that surfaces, Minnesota would be foolish to just dismiss it.

Had the Rockets included either Eric Gordon or P.J. Tucker along with those four future first-round picks in their most recent offer, we might have already seen a deal. But Houston is clearly trying to make this trade happen without giving up either one of those players.

When the Minnesota Timberwolves fired head coach Tom Thibodeau, there was speculation that team owner Glen Taylor would be in hot pursuit of former Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg.

“We spent time on (Chicago) and what he wanted to do in the future,” Taylor said of his discussion with Hoiberg, according to Danny Lawhon of The Des Moines Register.

“We had already made up our mind on Ryan, because Ryan has worked with these players, been there all year. That was the easiest way to make the transition.”
