As Butler trade watch continues, team looks to Wiggins to fill role

As Butler trade watch continues, team looks to Wiggins to fill role

So perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Cavs remain one of the team's interested in acquiring All-Star guard/forward Jimmy Butler, who requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves early last week.

Recent reports have stated that the Timberwolves' asking price in any trade for the point guard is too steep for some teams to cooperate with.

That has meant he's asking for quality veterans along with top prospects, draft picks and/or cap relief, according to several reports.

Early Intervention in mental health conditions is crucial
Tragic, because the rising rates of suicide in countries around the world underscore the pervasiveness of mental illnesses. To begin with Gibraltar needs to introduce a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, GMWS said.

Sources are skeptical of Tom Thibodeau's desire to make a deal.

On Wednesday, the New York Times reported that Butler prefers a trade to Miami, and while the Heat are interested in acquiring Butler, they have found trade talks hard. If the falling-out hurt Butler's trade value to the point of a buy-low situation, the risks may have been worth it.

Teams all around the league reportedly have shown interest in dealing for Butler, including the Rockets as the latest to emerge as a candidate.

Here are three reasons why the Cavs should avoid a Jimmy Butler trade. Minnesota shared Butler's medical info with Miami, owners were involved and sides prepared to finalize.

Jimmy Butler declined an invitation to reconsider his trade demand and opted to reiterate his position to the Minnesota Timberwolves. O'Conner mentions to Simmons that he's heard from multiple people that Minnesota's counteroffer to the Sixers for Butler was demanding Ben Simmons in return.

That said, what the Timberwolves would likely ask for from the Celtics - any of their All-Stars or Jayson Tatum - would be too much for Ainge to sign off on a deal. "I feel like he's been doing a great job since the last two days of camp - just demanding the ball, hitting great shots, being real physical - but that's just things we've always counted on him doing". Butler's list of preferred destinations isn't long, and for anyone outside of that group, he is a one-year rental that, in a best-case scenario, comes with a risky price tag next summer.
