Timberwolves nearly dealt Jimmy Butler to Heat

Timberwolves nearly dealt Jimmy Butler to Heat

The report also said the Rockets have been aggressive in trying to acquire Butler while Yahoo reported the Clippers have interest in trading for Butler.

In any Butler deal, Minnesota had hoped to unload center Gorgui Dieng and the $48 million left on his contract. The Wolves don't hold much leverage in this situation, especially after revealing Butler's injury history. Butler remains away from the team officially as he rehabilitates his surgically-repaired right hand.

On a certain level, that's true.

Amid all of this, one team has stuck out as the most likely trade partner for Butler: the Miami Heat. The Heat aren't winning the title with or without him either, so the team's 2018-19 floor and ceiling aren't moving too drastically based on that possible addition. "Or is this just more smoke and mirrors?"

But this might be a cheaper variant of the device and other variants with higher RAM and a bigger storage might also be available. Last year, the Pixel 2 came with a standard 16:9 display , whereas the Pixel 3 is expected to embrace the 18:9 aspect ratio.

Jimmy Butler was open to trading his 'Wolves kit for one of those snazzy Miami Vice singlets, and it nearly happened too.

That matters, especially to a franchise like the Heat that enjoys flaunting its legacy and allure.

As Miami Heat was receiving the amended version of their agreement, Minnesota was busy scrounging up Jimmy Butler's medical records. Assuming Hassan Whiteside, Tyler Johnson and Goran Dragic all accept bloated player options, Miami owes seven players $10 million or more for the 2019-20 season and already has more than $120 million in guaranteed money owed for that season and the one after it.

An 11th-hour decision to nix a trade with the Miami Heat leaves Jimmy Butler in the unwanted limbo position for at least another day or two. He will become a free agent next summer barring an extension.
