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.

"That prompted Andrew Wiggins" brother to post "Hallelujah" while reacting to the news.

The Sixers may want Butler more than he wants them, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't try. The offers may not be as fruitful with the risk of Butler being a one-year rental and Minnesota losing all its leverage, but for the sake of being thorough, here are 10 potential deals that might work.

Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler formally requested a trade Wednesday - and that set off a series of events that eventually involved former National Basketball Association player Stephen Jackson, Minnesota small forward Andrew Wiggins and Andrew's brother Nick Wiggins.

Nevertheless, it remains uncertain how much - if anything - the Clippers would trade for a player whom the team could sign this summer without surrendering any assets.

There have been multiple reports that Thibodeau really does have no interest in trading Butler, whom he acquired from the Chicago Bulls on draft night in 2017.

As previously noted though, Minnesota will have the final say on Butler trade request and where he lands, which could ultimately end up being the difference of $50 million and another year on a future contract.

First Kawhi and now Jimmy Butler have been linked with rumors that they don't want to play for Lebron.

Butler's unhappiness is just the latest issue to befall Minnesota over the past few months. Wiggins, meanwhile, has been said to be bothered by being relegated to the team's third offensive option behind Butler and Towns. Butler made three All-Star trips with the Bulls and another with the Wolves last season. Now he also must balance the possibility of Butler leaving, and how the franchise should best handle that. In fact, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe, certain members of the Wolves organization would like to trade Butler before Monday's media day in order to avoid "a circus".
