During trade talks with the 76ers concerning Jimmy Butler, the Timberwolves made a counter offer to Philadelphia that included 2018 Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons, Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer reported on the most recent episode of The Bill Simmons Podcast.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Timberwolves are asking for proven veterans, future assets, cap space and prospects.

Despite Butler's desire to be traded, reports have surfaced that coach and president Tom Thibodeau is asking for a "steep package" that is putting a wrench in potential deals because he has no real desire to trade his star player.

The Miami Heat are reportedly aggressively pursuing Butler amid reports they are the disgruntled forward's preferred destination. In the eyes Spoelstra, the ability to acquire a star with the talent level of Butler immediately raises the team's chances to win. With the group the Celtics have clicking and looking like championship-contenders, there's no reason to trade for Butler right now. Miami, however, has found it hard to get Minnesota to "clearly communicate". Butler remains adamant that he will not return to the team even after a meeting Monday with Thibodeau, who tried to persuade Butler to rejoin the team, according to ESPN.

Butler has two years remaining on the five-year, $92 million deal he signed with the Bulls in 2015.

Butler only appeared in 59 games with the Wolves, averaging 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2 steals per game, while helping the team to their first playoff berth since 2003-04.
