Heading into the 2018-19 NBA season, Jimmy Butler informed Minnesota Timberwolves head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau of his trade request during their meeting in Los Angeles.

Something, Andrew Wiggins' brother made clear that he loved so much as he celebrated on Twitter upon hearing the news. All three teams have cap space to sign Butler outright next offseason as a free agent.

The Jimmy Butler saga will continue to develop as we get closer to the regular season.

Charania reports that Butler provided the Timberwolves with a list of between one and three teams he would be willing to sign an extension with, presumably increasing the return the Timberwolves could receive in a deal.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Butler would prefer a trade to the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Clippers or New York Knicks.


Butler only appeared in 59 games with the Wolves, averaging 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2 steals per game.

Butler's impact on the Wolves was easy to see last season.

The Heat will host its "Red, White & Pink" scrimmage on September 29 at 10 a.m.at FAU Arena to close out training camp.

Following the team's annual Media Day at AmericanAirlines Arena on Monday, the Heat will travel to Boca Raton for two-a-day practice sessions that will be closed to the public from Tuesday through Friday of that week leading into the scrimmage.
