Voted no. figure out another way to trade for butler if he's wanted that badly. too steep for a player with a 2019-2020 player option

More likely it would be Smart, Morris + a pick. Thibs would love Marcus, and he might have a positive effect on Towns and Wiggins. And those guys look like they could use a kick in the pants.

Unlikely that it would take just one pick and two role players though, neither on a bargain contract

I may have posted this before, but if we didnít trade Brown for Kawhi, we are not trading him for Butler. Kawhi is a tier better than Butler, and heís younger..
He is also an expiring contract, missed almost an entire year with an injury, is rumored to be heading to LA next summer, and Brown wasn't the only major piece being sought by the Spurs.  Butler is only the expiring contract and none of those other things but has been linked to Irving by a lot of people.

Well, Butler is an expiring contract, has clashed with and undermined teammates, has been rumored to be headed to NY next summer, and due to salary matching purposes we'd need to include at least one other major piece.

The Butler smearing has really reached a crescendo. 

My observation is that he's basically Marcus Smart with talent. If you're willing to put a positive spin on Smart's MANY miscues (fighting fans, humiliating and badgering young Jaylen in practice, smoking weed on IG, breaking his hand midseason punching pictures) than Jimmy Butler talking trash while winning every scrimmage in practice shouldn't be that hard to get over.
