Beat writer Jon Krawczynski reports in The Athletic that veteran guard and clubhouse presence Jimmy Butler has requested that he be traded less than a week before training camp is set to open.

Butler, who has a player option on his contract next season, has come up with a list of teams that he would like to sign a long-term deal with, according to Krawczynski. The 29-year old All-Star, who is now slated to become a free agent next summer, can sign a max deal worth four years, $140.6 million.

The Thibodeau-Butler meeting was expected to be a serious conversation on the franchise's fragile state, sources said. On Wednesday, Wiggins' older brother, Nick, added credence to those reports with his celebratory tweet.

With under a week to go before players report to their respective franchise, a Butler trade could send the start of the National Basketball Association season into a wild place.

Jimmy Butler's days with the Minnesota Timberwolves appear to be numbered. After coaching Butler for four seasons with the Chicago Bulls, Thibodeau traded Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and Lauri Markkanen for him as the Timberwolves made the playoffs for the first time in 13 seasons.

Minnesota's training camp is scheduled to begin September 25, but Butler is reportedly optimistic a deal could be done before camp begins.

In 59 games for the Timberwolves last season, Butler averaged 22.2 points per game on 47.4 per cent shooting.
