According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, trade talks between the Timberwolves and the Heat involving superstar Jimmy Butler have fallen apart.
Talks between the Miami Heat and the Minnesota Timberwolves were reportedly “heating up” to the point where Butler’s medical information was shared with Miami’s front office. The two teams were reportedly preparing to finalize a trade deal, but after thinking it over, Minnesota’s management pushed to receive more in the trade and Miami backed out of the deal.
According to reports released throughout the past several weeks, teams around the league believe that the asking price Minnesota has told them may be to high. While speculation continues to fly around the league, Minnesota’s owner reportedly has informed his front office that despite this trade falling through, their goal should remain the same: find a trade for Jimmy Butler.
