Jimmy Butler may not report to training camp for Timberwolves

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jimmy Butler watches in the third quarter of an NBA basketball game against the Sacramento Kings in Minneapolis. Butler isn't the first NBA star to ask for

The Minnesota Timberwolves have generated more news this week than many National Basketball Association teams do in an entire season.

Jimmy Butler has been granted permission to not participate in media day with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.

Though no specifics of a potential deal between Cleveland and Minnesota have been mentioned, if the Cavaliers would be willing to also take center Gorgui Dieng, who is owed $48.5 million over the next three seasons, as part of a potential swap it could be a deal sweetener.

The terms of a contract state that Towns is eligible for 30 percent of the team's salary cap should he make an All-NBA team, earn NBA Most Valuable Player, or Defensive Player of the Year honors next season. He can sign a four-year, $141 million deal with a new team.

That report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski came with a caveat that Butler's availability depended on team owner Glen Taylor's approval.

It had been a tumultuous team-up for Butler to say the least.

Knicks nearing agreement to waive Noah
In March of 2017, he was suspended 20 games by the National Basketball Association for violating the league's anti-drug policy. The two-time All-Star averaged 9.3 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.4 blocks during his first nine season with Chicago.

Jimmy Butler met with Tom Thibodeau Tuesday and asked for a trade, specifically to the Clippers/Nets/Knicks. If LA doesn't want to move Tobias Harris or one of their other valuable veterans, SGA could be thrown in the conversation to keep Minnesota on the call. Thibodeau, a relentless competitor, would rather hang onto Butler.

With training camp just around the corner, the OKC Thunder stand to benefit from the inevitable trade of Minnesota Timberwolves All Star Jimmy Butler. They requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the negotiations.

The Knicks have maintained both publicly and privately that they will remain patient in their pursuit of stars - a change from experience - and will not trade first round picks.

In early September, Thibodeau added one of his former Bulls players by signing Luol Deng after he was released by the Los Angeles Lakers.

None of the team's on Butler's list of preferred destinations would have a serious shot at taking down the Warriors, or even making an Eastern Conference playoff run.

Towns has also proven to be extremely durable as he's completed all 82 games in his three seasons in the league so far.
