My guess on the 3 teams is Knicks, Lakers, Celtics

Probably Knicks, Lakers, Clippers in my opinion. With Miami as a long-shot.

While in the past I would’ve loved Jimmy in green, I don’t think that he’s a good fit with our current ball club.
Nope dude seems like a whining crybaby that is never happy wherever hes at

Yeah.  Been thinking for awhile he might be an issue in the locker room.

This is where the Lakers not having the Deng contract becomes a problem, it would have been one of the few contracts in that range that is eligible for trade. Deng and Ball for Butler may have gotten it done. Too late now

Butler is not going to sign an extension now because it will cost him a ton of money

This means teams are not going to give up much value to get him.

It's tough for me because while he definitely seems like a malcontent, I can't really blame him for getting frustrated with Wiggins' and Towns' lackadaisacal attitude, especially toward defense, and Chicago had clearly become a dead-end team in need of a blowup by the end. Maybe it's a mix. In any event he ain't coming here so we'll see how he does on team #3.

Minny was a 3-4 seed with him, then he missed 20 games and they couldn't keep it together. Maybe he's not a superstar in the traditional since, but he's right there in the next tier.

I think he ends up in Miami.

Agree about the return Minnesota would get. They certainly aren't going to get the return that they gave to Chicago to get him.

Unless he says he will sign an extension with a few teams, which apparently he is saying. Those 3 teams would then have to bid against each other.

The timing of this wreaks of Lebron/Magic tampering.

I think so too. Even if Miami is not one of the 3 teams on Butler's list, Riley is the kinda guy who would take the chance on it and totally win him over.

If that was the case, they likely would've kept Deng has a salary filler. They can't make a trade now until December.

Lebron saw the roster he has around him firsthand now that guys are showing up for training camp soon and realized its gonna be a long season if he doesnt get some better guys around him

I think Butler is about a top 12 or 13 player in the league. That's dang good. If traded here he would become the team's best player, IMHO. But, I don't want him here and neither would the Celtics.
