Should the Cavs mortgage the farm to trade for Jimmy Butler?

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

There is also a huge benefit for the point guard to be traded now ahead of next summer rather than stay in Minnesota and see out his contract before becoming a free agent. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Butler's three choices are the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Jimmy Butler has shown his frustration towards the Timberwolves this offseason to the point of where he asked for a trade yesterday.

The Knicks, much like the Clippers and Nets, also have enough cap space to bring in a top-tier free agent, but what separates NY from LA and Brooklyn is its All-Star talent in Porzingis - a rising 23-year-old star who's years away from his prime.

Butler told everyone back in July that he wasn't signing the $10 million extensions with the T-Wolves because he was fed up with the "nonchalant" attitudes of young stars Andrew Wiggins and Karl -Anthony Towns. As for the Timberwolves who dealt him?

GOP senators to Kavanaugh's accuser: Testify next week, or we will vote
The president has indicated he wants Ford to testify, saying, "I really want to see her, to see what she has to say". But Ford said through her lawyers that she did not want to testify before the FBI investigates her allegation.

Butler and Andrew Wiggins have been teammates for only one season, as Minnesota head coach/president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau traded Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the draft rights to Lauri Markkanen to the Chicago Bulls to acquire Butler.

It sounds like Thibodeau, if he trades Butler at all, only is interested in the type of return the San Antonio Spurs received from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Kawhi Leonard. "Even if he has to agree to dissolve the contract, they'd do that before they go and trade Butler for draft picks".

Butler would like to be traded to Knicks, Nets, Clippers or HEAT so he can be the MAN in a big city. However, more competition as well as numerous teams will also have cap space. In fact, he said what many people believe, which is that Wiggins has hella talent but no heart, and if you remove Butler from the squad, you'd be left with tons of potential and minimal grit. Butler liked a comment that suggested he should team up with Kyrie Irving in NYC. And if Minnesota struggles to make the playoffs, or misses it altogether, this season, Thibodeau's time in Minneapolis could come to a close. He has already said there are at least two other teams he would consider re-signing with if traded to. The front office will have some serious thinking to do in the coming days as they evaluate both their current position and the future.
