Karl-Anthony Towns getting $190 million extension from Wolves

Houston TX USA Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler drives against Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul

With all the drama coming out of Minnesota right now; including Jimmy Butler demanding a trade and Andrew Wiggins beefing with Stephen Jackson on IG, the team finally has a chance to announce some good news.

Following the initial news, head coach and head of operations Tom Thibodeau was adamant that Butler remains with the team during training camp.

With the clock ticking on Butler's tenure in Minnesota in the wake of ESPN's report of Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor seeking a resolution amid this week's opening of National Basketball Association training camps, several analysts have an eye pointed south. As Layden was rebuffing trade calls on Thursday and Friday, Taylor found himself surrounded with owners and team executives at the NBA's Board of Governors meeting in NY.

"The owner's trading him", one Board of Governors source told ESPN. "That was made clear". T.J. Warren would certainly be the likely centerpiece of any Suns deal going back to Minnesota; the Wolves would have to see a future for Warren at the four as well, one would surmise, because it's not likely Wiggins is going to move from the three.

Butler is looking to cash in on a major contract extension that would give him around $190 million over five years. Despite this, Butler still averaged 22.2 points, 4.9 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cleveland Cavaliers are pursuing a trade for Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Jimmy Butler in light of Butler's request to be dealt to a new team.

Thibodeau - who oversees Layden, the point person on trade talks with outside GMs - wants to hold onto Butler and navigate the season with him.

But Carter believes the presence of James on the Lakers means Butler will not be able to get his wish at being the main main.

Taken first overall in the 2015 NBA draft out of Kentucky, the 22-year-old has since won Rookie of the Year in 2016 and made the All-NBA third team last season.
