On Tuesday afternoon a report leaked suggesting an NBA star asked his team for a trade. Jimmy Butler has reportedly requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves after a meeting with head coach Tom Thibodeau.

Included in the report was the assertion that Butler named one-to-three teams he wanted to be traded to. Sham Charania of the Athletic broke the initial report.

Now, Shams' former boss Adrian Wojnarowski has chimed in on the report as well. According to Woj, Butler wants to be traded to either of these three teams:

  • New York Knicks
  • Los Angeles Clippers
  • Brooklyn Nets

Here's the report.

Earlier this year reports suggested Butler was hoping to team with Kyrie Irving with the New York Knicks or Brooklyn Nets. A trade to either of those locations won't do anything to quiet the rumors that this will be Irving's last year with the Boston Celtics.

Stay tuned for more updates.
