Jimmy Butler is sitting out on purpose to pressure the Wolves to trade him according to reporter Shams Charania.
Butler apparently started contemplating sitting out on Tuesday and made his decision Wednesday morning to sit out. This could turn into an extended absence. A possible six-week-long absence to be exact. Owners need to hold on for more news before doing anything rash.
