Minnesota Timberwolves: Jimmy Butler determined to play for the Clippers? – Adrian Wojnarowski
More developing in the Butler trade sweepstakes. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Butler feels more determined to land with the Los Angeles Clippers over any other team.
The Los Angeles Clippers have the salary to bring in two-players on max contracts and reports are saying that Kawhi Leonard could be brought in next season and that second top player next to Butler. The Clippers have lost two top franchise players last season in Blake Griffin and Chris Paul so bringing back a core 1-2 in Leonard and Butler could get this team back into playoff-mode for the future.
