Nets should do whatever they can to get him.  Would instantly make them relevant and add credibility to them as a real and viable New York team and option.  The problem is making a trade that makes sense for both teams as I'm not sure Minnesota would want Russell and he clearly is the most valuable asset on the Nets.  Though Russell and Crabbe for Butler is somewhat interesting for the Wolves (if I'm the Nets I'd rather keep Crabbe and trade Carroll though even if it meant draft capital).

I agree with you, Morey. Russell and Crabbe is a pretty similar value to the Oladipo-Sabonis haul that the Pacers got.

Crabbe can stretch the floor pretty well. He's not an elite defender, but he is pretty good. Russell is a gamble. It makes sense for both teams.

Darkhorse - could the Rockets get in on this? Morey could swing for the fences. Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker for Butler would be a win-now haul for the Wolves.
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

Raptors, a team seemingly going all in for 1 year and then blowing it up, should be considered a player for Butler.

Do they have anything they can trade that would interest the Twolves and also match salary?

A package of, say, VanFleet, Miles, Wright and a lottery protected 1st rounder may be enticing to Thibs. A few solid veterans and low/mid range prospects might be all you can expect from an expiring trade request.

Knicks still have that contract to trade. Which is huge at a moment like this.

Thibs traded Lavine, Dunn, and Markkanen for Butler. He has single-handedly ruined that franchise's trajectory.

Could you imagine a lineup of:

Dunn (defensive menace and decent facilitator)
Lavine (pure scorer)
Wiggins (who had improved as a scorer every year until last year)
Markkanen (perfect stretch four next to Towns)
Towns (a natural center on defense who has had to play PF next to Dieng)

That's a lot of young, scary, complementary bucket-getters.

Looks like the first domino to fall. If it's the Nets or Knicks, Kyrie's flight risk quotient goes up by quite a bit.

The Knicks would have to give up quite a bit to get Minnesota to take on Noah for 2 years
The contract could be valuable as an expiring, but with 2 years remaining it's a pretty big price to pay
I'm bitter.

That would be an incredible move for Toronto. They'd lose a bit of depth, but that starting lineup would have a very solid argument for being the best in the East

That lineup might be fun to watch, but they'd be the worst defensive team in the league.
Towns couldn't guard you.

Would be super interested in if Boston is one of those teams...

That's why we got Hayward instead of Jimmy Butler (or Paul George) in the summer of 2017.

Don't you mean 'Premium Brand Ricky Davis?' Hey, at least he's not 'Kroger Brand Ricky Davis.'

As for the actual trade request, interesting teams to say the least, but at least he is doing everything he can to make sure he gets his 5-yr max with 8% raises. Hope this doesn't affect Kyrie, but who knows anymore?

Always felt like Butler overvalued himself. He just isn't a super star player IMO

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.
He was just listed at 10 in nba player rankings.  The real issue is that most fans underrate Butler.

A trade to the Knicks would certainly ramp up the Kyrie to NY rumors again.
Pretty much.

As a side note, Butler strikes me as a red-a*s.  Not necessarily a bad thing but something to consider.
