Jimmy Butler Wants To Be Traded To Miami Heat, Reporter Says

Despite not being one of Jimmy Butler's original preferred trade teams, the Miami Heat are now reportedly the All-Star's top choice.

Marc Stein of the New York Times reported Tuesday that Butler and his agent have told the Minnesota Timberwolves that he wants to be traded to Miami.

When Butler first made his trade demand last week, only the Clippers, Nets and Knicks were on his list. 

The main obstacle now remains what would be included in any possible deal.

After days of hoping to change Butler's mind, Minnesota seems ready to trade him away after just one season.

"Our reality is that he has requested a trade, so we'll honor that," said Timberwolves head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau. "But we're not just going to make any deal."
