We had heard in town hear that the Miami Heat were now poking around the services of Jimmy Butler and now we have a second source, this one stemming from Adrian Wojnarowski who is hearing similar things.
So far, Pat Riley and Miami have been as aggressive as any team in pursuit of a Jimmy Butler trade with Minnesota, league sources tell ESPN. Ownership still prefers to find a deal by early this week, sources said.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) September 23, 2018
Here's the main thing with this rumor. It tells us that multiple teams are calling, and most of them are not on Jimmy's cute little list of desired teams. That means the Wolves won't get hosed quite as much as we had once thought they would. These other teams might have better assets that the Clippers don't have.
