You Can Already Wager On Where Jimmy Butler Will Be Traded

Butler informed Tom Thibodeau he would prefer a trade and plans to leave in free agency. Over the last several weeks, Butler began to seriously contemplate his future with the team and a potential trade request, league sources said.

With the remaining money that LA would have after extending Butler, there would be enough left over to sign another player to a max deal - and there is no shortage of top-tier talent available next summer. "What we're not going to do is trade away assets to get a [free agent] that we can go get on our own later".

So while there's nothing from Irving's camp that's indicated he's actually interested in teaming up with Butler and/or leaving the Celtics, it seems pretty obvious what Butler is angling for with his preferred destinations. The guard willed Minnesota to the playoffs, snapping a 13-year postseason drought. At that point, it becomes second-round picks in 2024 and 2025. Technically, Butler is now signed through the 2019-20 season, but he has a player option for that final year and will nearly certainly opt out of the deal.

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.

Getting a deal done theoretically is one thing.

Both Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler have requested trades from their respective teams this offseason, and both could wind up on the same team by 2019.

If Butler reaches free agency, Minnesota could still re-sign him at five years and $190 million using its full Bird rights, but any other team would be limited to an offer of four years and $141 million.
