He fits the bill of a max-contract player, but teams might be reluctant to invest this much money in Butler.

"At 6'8", Butler is one of the best two-way wings in the National Basketball Association.

"Any team acquiring Butler would be able to move forward with a maximum extension next summer, with his Bird Rights accompanying him in a trade".

The rift between Butler and Timberwolves' All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns, as well as Andrew Wiggins, seems to be a major reason why Butler is likely to be traded before the start of the season.

The Timberwolves were scheduled to meet with Butler this week to "have honest conversations" about his future with the team. While there is risk involved in placing a big bet on someone who has played as many minutes as Butler has, this is a genuine superstar who could help the team turn the page from culture-building to real competitiveness. From Chicago to Minnesota, Butler brought with him an edge, a relenting push, and he's had an ally in Tom Thibodeau, an equally hard-charging coach.

When the Minnesota Timberwolves acquired Jimmy Butler previous year before the season began many people speculated about how good the team could be. A potential package that does work under those guidelines would be Hardaway, Thomas and a first-round pick.
