Tom Thibodeau has "no interest" in trading Jimmy Butler and would like to try and return to the postseason with him as a member of the Wolves.
How else is he going to react? Woj also states that there's a resistance to cave to Butler's request quickly given Thibodeau's tenuous standing with team ownership. Butler informed Thibs that he'd like to begin the season with another team, preferably a big market organization that could afford to re-sign him this summer. The Knicks, Nets and Clippers have been named as his top destinations but the Heat are rumored to be interested even if they presently lack the cap space to sign him to a max deal. Stay tuned.
