We're not sure what's going on with the Minnesota Timberwolves right now, but one thing we reportedly know is that Jimmy Butler has requested a trade from Minnesota.
After just one season in Minnesota, Butler apparently already wants out and the basketball world was shocked to say the least that he actually asked to be traded.
Aside from being shocked, people also speculated what teams are on Butler's short list and Raptors fans are convinced Toronto is one of those teams.
Tom Thibodeau has been resistant to the idea of trading Butler, we're told. With media day on Monday and training camp set to being on Tuesday, the clock is ticking.— Jon Krawczynski (@JonKrawczynski) September 19, 2018

Wolves, obviously, can try and convince @JimmyButler to stay. But here’s what he told me in February: "I mean, in the most humble way possible, if they don’t take care of me this summer, I think the summer after that, I’m’a end up playing somewhere." The "else" was left unsaid.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) September 19, 2018

The only reason why I don’t see Jimmy Butler signing with the Raptors is because of the DeMar DeRozan situation.— Sandro Rubin (@Insider6ix) September 19, 2018
They’re great friends and Jimmy Butler expressed how Toronto played him.
