  • Five Reasons the Miami Heat Is Better Off Without Jimmy Butler

Just how staggering was the offer?

Thibodeau and company are hoping the pass of time will drive Butler's stock up some more, making time the Wolves' only ally, as teams have been hesitant to offer a war chest of compensation for a player that is clearly looking to leave the Twin Cities. The Rockets have reportedly put four first-round draft picks on the table.

"Jimmy Butler update: According to a league source, The Wolves contacted the Rockets again Tuesday morning, after their failed deal with Miami this past weekend".

"The Rockets' offer constitutes the maximum number of first-round picks allowable in a deal, factoring in league rules that necessitate no first-rounders can be conveyed in successive years, and no pick can be traded farther out than seven seasons". He has started publicly his desire to be traded several times.

Under-fire Lopetegui not thinking about sack as Real slide continues
Lopetegui's side were stung twice inside 13 minutes when first Jose Luis Morales and then Roger Marti, from the spot, scored. His dismissal is now inevitable and only a matter of time until the Real Madrid president finally pulls the trigger.

The Rockets won't have the salary-cap space to sign Butler as a free agent next summer, meaning they can only bring him aboard by trading for him now and retaining his Bird rights. But considering how close James Harden and Co. came to reaching the Finals last season, Houston seems to be of the belief that Butler could get it over the hump. Minnesota (2-2) have won both their games against Eastern Conference opponents.

Would the Timberwolves really do this?

It's also unlikely the team doesn't insist on protection for the draft's top selections, like the picks that netted Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum for the Celtics.
