Jimmy Butler Requests a Trade from the Timberwolves

Jimmy Butler Requests a Trade from the Timberwolves

...And the shoe finally drops Jimmy Butler has requested a trade. That is the news emanating from the Los Angeles meeting between Butler, his agent, and Tom Thibodeau. Butler has one year remaining on his contract, and will be a unrestricted free agent next summer, giving him significant leverage. Apparently, the discontent was simply too much to overcome, both in personal terms (his relationship with Karl-Anthony Towns) and on the court, where Butler has been frustrated with the play of younger teammates. This is obviously bad news, as Butler was the Wolves best player last season, and a...

Doug Pederson explains why Eagles signed Jordan Matthews

PLUS: Phildaelphia’s head coach also touched on Carson Wentz, Frank Reich, and more. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has been in a much better mood this week, and whether it’s because he doesn’t have to field a dozen question about Carson Wentz’s return, or because he has his QB back in the first place, let’s just say the coach is smiling wider these days. The team is back at practice on Wednesday and there’s a lot of work to be done to not only get Wentz ready for his first game of the season, but to figure out what they are going to do with a banged up group of receivers and...
