Taj Gibson compares Jimmy Butler’s trade request to ‘right hook’

While everyone in Miami would obviously love to have the All-Star, there is one key Heat member who desperately wants to see Butler come to South Florida.

While Butler continues to hold out for a trade away from Minnesota, Rose is relishing the opportunity to fly under the radar while he prepares for the upcoming campaign.

With this asking price in mind, it's hard to imagine what the Rockets could possibly offer the Timberwolves for Butler without dismantling their team.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Minnesota could trade Butler to the Heat in exchange for Goran Dragic, while the Suns would land Jeff Teague from the Timberwolves as well.

The Houston Rockets are reportedly making a push to add Jimmy Butler.

They could look to make a three-team trade in order to make the deal happen.

"Our reality is that he has requested a trade, so we'll honor that", Thibodeau told CBS Sports.

Gibson went on to say that Butler's desire to jump ship may have been motivated by reasons other than his differences with his teammates, as it has been portrayed by the media.

If the Rockets were to land Butler, there would nearly certainly need to be a third team to absorb the salary of Gorgui Dieng.

If the Heat are able to get this deal done, not only will Butler be walking into South Beach satisfied, he will be walking into a championship organization run by Pat Riley. He also has played more than 67 games in a season just once since 2014 and is about to command a max contract.

The Philadelphia 76ers lost interest when the Timberwolves asked about 2017-18 NBA Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons, The Ringer reported Thursday.
