Butler requested a trade from the team Wednesday, telling team president and coach Tom Thibodeau that he was only willing to sign an extension with the Clippers, Knicks and Nets, with Los Angeles being his top choice.

Butler is downplaying his fractured relationship with Towns as a reason for wanting a trade, league sources said.
