NEGOTIATIONS for a Jimmy Butler move to the Miami Heat from the Minnesota Timberwolves hit a snag after some amendments to the trade proposal.
A deal has been reportedly set earlier this week, although the Heat couldn’t agree on the Timberwolves’ proposed changes, according The New York Times’ Marc Stein.
The Heat made it to last season’s playoffs as sixth seeds in the Eastern Conference and has maintained its core, including Dwyane Wade who was traded back to Miami by Cleveland ahead of deadline day.
Acquiring Butler adds another veteran to the squad also featuring Udonis Haslem, but could mean giving up some top young players.
The Heat and Timberwolves are discussing a trade without a third team, according to Stein.
