    Does he have a no-trade clause in his contract? Cause I think if you ask for a trade the team you are getting traded from is going to be like "yeah thats great Jimmy...tell you what though...you dont want to be here, so we dont give a flying $#%# where you want to go, were going to get max return for you", pretty sure the convo is going to go a little something like that.

    Nets would have to trade half the scrubs on their team.

    Jimmy going to Nets/Knicks may indicate that Kyrie is wanting to go there (or LAC) as well. If the previous rumors that Jimmy/Kyrie want to join up after this season are true this may be the first step to that.

    This doesn’t mesh with the “butler just wants to win” theory

    Why?

    This has been Butler’s MO for years. He wants the limelight first.

    curved by Bron...didn’t even get a look from PG...not even on Butler’s mind

    Who’s next?

    Rockets better win this title soon because Harden, CP3, and a bunch of role players has a short shelf life...CP3 will be turning 34 next season

    Butler wants to be the guy. Maybe a few years from now when he's fading, he'll want to come home to Houston

    Obviously. That’s the NBA’s murderer’s row with all the killers on those teams

    They always say stuff like that, but most of the time they want the money and the attention first.
