The price of a Jimmy Butler trade remains too steep, and teams are questioning Tom Thibodeau's willingness to make a deal.
Thibs has been pretty clear throughout the whole process that he doesn't want to trade Butler, and that's manifested itself in the acquisition cost. The Wolves are reportedly asking for "quality vets/top prospects/future assets/cap relief," which is something that two teams might have serious trouble providing, let alone three. With whispers that Butler will sit out rather than play for Minnesota again, this could get uglier.
