ESPN reported that Butler's three preferred trade destinations are the Nets, Knicks and Clippers.

Butler also talked this summer with fellow star Kyrie Irving about potentially teaming up somewhere down the line, either in Boston where Irving now plays or in another city.

However, according to Adrian Wojnarowski, sources say the Knicks aren't at the top of Butler's list. Even though the Timberwolves have a fondness for Avery Bradley, both he and Luc Mbah a Moute can not be traded until December because they signed new contracts this summer. Some teams would become title contenders, some would accelerate rebuilds, and some would just acquire Butler with the hopes of getting a head start on free agency next summer. The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers are the other two teams reportedly mentioned.

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. Of course, a commitment from Butler to re-sign with the team could mitigate the issue. He has until October 15 to sign that contract, which could be worth up to $188 million over five years. "Financially, it makes better sense for him to get traded there now".

On another occasion, they invited her to a party and took her back to his apartment once she was intoxicated , Rackauckas said. If convicted, Robicheaux could face up to 40-years in prison, while Riley could face 30-years and eight months.

Moving Kevin Love is an option too but there's a question of how much the Timberwolves would want Love to be paired with star center Karl Anthony-Towns, as neither have consistently been effective defenders at the National Basketball Association level.

But after dealing several promising young pieces for Butler last offseason, there's pressure on Thibodeau and Co.to recoup value in a potential trade of Butler, should they indeed choose to make one.

The same goes for Jimmy Butler, but he's more Vincent van Gogh, the tortured artist always chasing greatness and legitimacy among his peers. A starting lineup of Luca Doncic, Wes Matthews, Jimmy Butler, Dirk Nowitzki, and DeAndre Jordan would be very fun to watch.
