Jimmy Butler reportedly has asked the Timberwolves to trade him, with his eye on three teams.

Reports have surfaced this summer that Butler may looking to somehow team up with Boston Celtics point guard and close friend Kyrie Irving in NY soon.

The marriage between Jimmy Butler and the Minnesota Timberwolves is on life support, spiraling toward a nasty breakup only 15 months after it began. Earlier Wednesday, Wojnarowski reported the Clippers, Brooklyn Nets, and New York Knicks were considered Butler's preferred destinations, though Los Angeles looks to have gained a slight edge.

The long-running NBC sketch show, already the top Emmy victor ever with 71, won again for best variety sketch series. "Maisel" had a pretty - dare we say - marvelous night at the 2018 Emmy Awards.

If Butler is traded now, he could sign a five-year, maximum contract that could be worth $190 million with the team he lands with.

Now - with Jimmy Butler reportedly preferring a trade to the Clippers - Wojnarowski appears to be coming around on the Clippers. Technically, Butler is now signed through the 2019-20 season, but he has a player option for that final year and will nearly certainly opt out of the deal.

Butler joined Minnesota in a trade with the Chicago Bulls in June 2017. L.A. could also offer 2018 lottery picks Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Alexander.

Ed Davis signed with Brooklyn on a one-year deal on July 23, meaning he can not be traded before December 15, per Larry Coon's NBA Salary Cap FAQ.

All that said, the Cavs would have one of the youngest starting lineups in the league if Love is traded and that inexperience could very well lead to them receiving a top-10 pick in next year's draft.
