Wojnarowski: Jimmy Butler "most determined" to join LA Clippers

Throughout the upcoming season, there will be conflicting reports about Butler and Leonard.

Jimmy Butler reportedly has requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, and according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, he has three preferred destinations where he'd sign a long-term contract extension next summer after his current deal expires: the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers.

Butler met with Thibodeau in Los Angeles yesterday for showdown talks regarding his future.

Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler formally requested a trade Wednesday - and that set off a series of events that eventually involved former National Basketball Association player Stephen Jackson, Minnesota small forward Andrew Wiggins and Andrew's brother Nick Wiggins. He seconded Charania's earlier claim that those teams would be able to re-sign Butler as a free agent in July.

But the chances of both players joining the Clippers appears less likely. Being sentimental in this phase of his career is not too far off for the 12-time All-star, but everything just seems so coincidental especially with the Butler situation going about. "Only a bargain makes sense".

Could Irving sign with the Knicks anyway if Butler goes to L.A.? However, it's unclear whether Irving is even seriously considering leaving Boston. Butler didn't have LeBron on his list of teams he'd like to be traded to. Butler is reportedly not interested in playing alongside James. However, more competition as well as numerous teams will also have cap space. They can also have younger, developing talents like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Jerome Robinson and Tyrone Wallace, but it remains to be seen if L.A. would part with these players.
