Minnesota Timberwolves rumor: Trading for Jimmy Butler

The Minnesota Timberwolves have a lot of paths available to them this offseason in regards to the draft and free agency. Now, it appears they are also pursuing Jimmy Butler via trade once more.

Ever since Tom Thibodeau was hired by the Timberwolves as the President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach, it’s only been natural to speculate about any number of past Chicago Bulls’ players to join Minnesota.

Although, none of those speculations, with the exception of Derrick Rose, has much weight behind them.

Until now that is. Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Timberwolves and Bulls are engaging in preliminary trade talks centered around Butler.
