Well damn, looks like their contenderishness is over before it started, but perhaps getting Butler out will be enough incentive to get rid of Thibs before he ruins their young core. Maybe having KG lobbying will be enough incentive for a quality FA or two to sign there and compliment KAT and the rest.

I'm not surprised.
Thibs = not a good coach.
Wiggins = slacker.
KAT = personality of a teenage girl.

I wonder which team should Jimmy Butler get traded to?

The thing is that I believe Butler has insinuated that winning is important to him and, despite this, he reportedly has asked to be traded to the Nets, Knicks or Clippers. Good luck winning with those teams (as currently constructed, at least).

Now, it has been suggested that he really wants to be traded to the Clippers and that Leonard wants to sign with the Clippers next summer. So, this could be Butler and Leonard trying to make a play to end up on a team together.

Wow, Butler and Leonard are the ultimate 2-way players, amazing if they team-up.
The most definitive duo of 2-way players since Jordan-Pippen.
The only downside is they are both injury-prone.

As long as this leads to the ousting of Thibs, I am all for it. That dude runs young teams into the ground. There is a reason Butler is injury prone (and every other former Thibs player), no need to put KAT through it as well.

Looks like Glen Taylor is having no part of this... willing to go over everyone's head if the right package presents itself.

It's a report out saying the Timberwolves prefer Bam Adebayo, Josh Richardson and 2019 first round pick from the Miami Heat in exchange for Jimmy Butler.

Send him to the Atlanta Hawks to teach him a lesson.
