Fan pranks Jimmy Butler with fake trade announcement to Kings

Fan pranks Jimmy Butler with fake trade announcement to Kings

The Sixers need to surround Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons with shooters, Brett Brown's offense relies on pace and space, and it doesn't seem ideal to bring Butler into a situation where he'd be playing second or third fiddle.

As speculation around Jimmy Butler continues to heat up, Butler's camp reportedly is pushing for a deal with Heat.

Despite not being one of Jimmy Butler's original preferred trade team partners, the Miami Heat are now reportedly the All-Star's top choice on where to be dealt. Although Miami has stepped forward as the front runner for Butler, there was a time last week that the Clippers were seen as the favorite to land the All-Star. He requested a trade and we're going to honor his request. To go along with that, Legion Hoops reported the Brooklyn Nets pulled back after the Timberwolves asked for D'Angelo Russell, Caris LeVert and additional assets. "That's what our job is".

Recent reports have stated that the Timberwolves' asking price in any trade for the point guard is too steep for some teams to cooperate with.

Earlier this week, the Cleveland Cavaliers made it clear they still intend on competing for a playoff spot this season, despite LeBron James having taken his talents to Los Angeles.

After trading three potential All-Stars in Zach Lavine, Kris Dunn and the 7th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft (Lauri Markkanen), the Wolves are looking to recoup as much as possible from their one-year rental of Butler.

A trade to Miami would reunite Butler with Dwyane Wade, with whom he was teammates and close friends with for one year in Chicago.
