"At 6'8", Butler is one of the best two-way wings in the National Basketball Association. Butler has also prioritized the New York Knicks over the Brooklyn Nets.


Then again, it worked out pretty well for the Oklahoma City Thunder with Paul George, and it didn't stop the Toronto Raptors from trading for Kawhi Leonard. The four-time all-star has averaged 20-plus point per game in each of the past four seasons, which an average true shooting percentage of 58.0.

The Sixers may want Butler more than he wants them, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't try.

Just when it seemed things had stabilized with the Minnesota Timberwolves, turbulence appears to be rearing its head again.


Beyond that, teams like the Sixers, Celtics and Lakers have odds on the board, even despite the fact that the well-publicized list does not include any of those franchises.

So, one of the teams Butler would apparently be OK with being traded to is the Knicks. I bet Butler would respect Leonard.

Taking on one of their less desirable contracts, like center Gorgui Dieng (he'll earn $48.5 million over the next three seasons), could be enticing enough for the Wolves to bite.


Love had been an impressive leader early in the post-LeBron years but he's not a good enough defensive fit with KAT to make them a desirable pair. A potential package that does work under those guidelines would be Hardaway, Thomas and a first-round pick.
