Chris Haynes at Yahoo reported that the Clippers and Wolves are in trade talks regarding disgruntled All-Star Jimmy Butler.
Recent reports have had the Heat seemingly the favorite to get Butler but it looks like the Clippers are trying to get in the mix too. Haynes reported that the Wolves want Tobias Harris back in any Butler trade which the Clippers don’t want to do. Even more interesting is that Haynes also reported that Thibs is still hoping to convince Butler to withdraw his trade request. We have to give it to Thibs; he definitely wins the gold medal for stubbornness. With Wolves’ owner Glen Taylor putting pressure on Thibs to get a deal done before the season starts, something’s going to have to break sooner or later.
