Jimmy Butler appears to respond to shade from Wiggins' brother

Jimmy Butler

He played in 59 games for the Timberwolves last season, averaging 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.0 steals per game. Minnesota is set to begin training cmap on Tuesday.

Late Wednesday night, Wojnarowski added an update: Butler is "most interested" in "pursuing a future" with the Clippers, per Woj's sources, and is tempted by the chance to team up with a second star player who comes to L.A. via free agency.

Jimmy Butler wants to play in Los Angeles, but not with LeBron James. We'll see if Butler is wearing a different jersey by then - and if Minnesota's drama spirals further out of control.

Butler and Andrew Wiggins have been teammates for only one season, as Minnesota head coach/president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau traded Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the draft rights to Lauri Markkanen to the Chicago Bulls to acquire Butler.




But they will now be seeking out teams to offer the best trade package for Butler. However, more competition as well as numerous teams will also have cap space.

"That prompted Andrew Wiggins" brother to post "Hallelujah" while reacting to the news.

The Athletic's sources said that Butler, 29, gave the Timberwolves a list of teams he'd consider signing with for the long term.

As for Towns, who has yet to sign the max contract extension that has been offered, it's still unclear exactly what he is evaluating for before signing it, though earlier this summer the franchise did fire assistant coach Vince Legarza, with whom Towns was close. While both NY and Brooklyn will also have the cap space to sign another star alongside Butler next offseason, it's particularly newsworthy that Los Angeles is apparently the front-runner for Leonard next summer.
