The Jimmy Butler standoff A status update for a critical week for the Wolves

Minnesota and Miami had been discussing deals that included a third team to take on salary, as well as doing a direct trade between the Timberwolves and Heat, league sources said.

There's still a chance the teams re-open trade talks, Wojnarowski reported, but if Minnesota can't work things out with Miami, it might be in trouble.

Despite Butler's standing as a bona fide top-20 player in the National Basketball Association, the market for him hasn't been as robust as Minnesota likely anticipated.

It originally seemed as though the Heat wouldn't deal Richardson, but they've apparently come around to the idea.




ESPN Sources: Minnesota-Miami talks escalated close to a Jimmy Butler deal over weekend - only to see trade fall apart.

According to reports, the Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings have also kicked the tires on a Butler deal. Though coach Tom Thibodeau has reportedly been skeptical of dealing Butler, and made an effort to talk him into re-joining the team, it appears the situation is irreparable.

Butler has the right to become a free agent on July 1, with an acquiring team likely to seek assurances that he will re-sign.

It is important to note that Butler will be a free agent next year, making it more hard for Minny's trade partners to commit more valuable assets in exchange for the 29-year old star. Richardson, who averaged 12.9 points in 81 starts last season, is in the first season of a four-year, $42 million contract. The Clippers and Nets never found traction in conversations with Minnesota, and the Knicks never called, sources said.
