Timberwolves say they intend to keep Butler

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jimmy Butler

The news comes after the National Basketball Association superstar and Wolves veteran guard Butler reportedly requested a trade from the team. There is a lot of turmoil with this team, and how, Butler is not reporting to training camp, as the team is allowing him to skip it all.

Taylor attended the Board of Governors meeting on Friday and made his peers aware of his plans to trade the swingman as he doesn't have the "stomach for a dysfunctional season", according to the same reports.

It's unclear whether the Wolves have signed off on Butler's camp holdout.

The latter came with the No. 7 pick the Bulls acquired in the Butler trade - and maybe Markkanen was doing a little trolling on Twitter because of the recent news.

That has been followed by some scrambling on the Wolves side regarding the front office and ownership being on the same page.

But Butler's long-term aim is clear: He wants to form the NBA's next superteam or lure Irving his way. The former Bull gave the Timberwolves a list of three teams he's willing to sign an extension with if traded: the Nets, Clippers and Knicks.

The question now is how long it takes Minnesota to move on from Butler.

'Multiple victims' reported at shooting in business park in Aberdeen, Maryland
As people lined up to come in the building, Gahler said she cut in line and words were exchanged, but it was a "little incident". The wounded included Hassan Mitchell , 19, Wilfredo Villegas , 45, and a 45-year-old woman from NY named Acharya Purna.

From the outside, it would appear that reported friction between Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns is the true reason the rift has become this big of an issue.

Some of the problems that led to Butler's trade request may have stemmed from his teammates.

While any team aside from those seems somewhat unlikely to offer much up after knowing where Butler wants to go, there is one other to monitor.

Towns and Wiggins are great players and at this point better than Butler.

Butler had once imagined playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, but LeBron James' arrival as the franchise's cornerstone made it less appealing for Butler in the prime of his career, league sources said.

Despite being touted as an elite defender and athlete in college at Kansas, Wiggins has regressed since Butler joined the Timberwolves.
