    Now I understand why the LAC Blake Griffin for Min Karl Anthony Towns trade rumors were happening around the Trade Deadline. Karl wanted to leave, Jimmy and Andrade were together, Karl was disgruntled, shocked, distrust grew, locker room divided, Karl never was fully focused against the Rockets in the First Round. Capela outhustled, outplayed Karl.
    Tom Thibodeu is at fault for bringing in Jimmy Butler. Karl hates Tom for that. Karl does not want to sign a Supermax Extension. All the Millions cannot fix the situation. Jimmy apparently wanted Pretty Andrade, Minnesota does not have a night life in order to meet or hookup. Jimmy wants the club, night life with hooking up as many women as possible with wanting a trade to Clippers, Knicks, Nets.

    Yea, makes perfect sense. Clint completely destroyed KAT in the Playoff. Now we know why

    I don't really see the great trade partner in the Clippers if the Wolves want to stay competitive.

    Harris is their best asset and he's an expiring player that just refused 20M per year from the Clippers cause he wants more, and on top of that he's a terrible fit to play with/between Towns and Wiggins.

    Other players i don't know, Gortat makes no sense and he's super old at this point anyway, Pat is probably something Thibs still likes but, expiring, super injury prone. Lou is the only valuable asset i can see there, too bad he's another no defense kind of player and a meh fit for the Wolves

    Towns
    Harris
    Wiggins
    Lou
    Teague

    ...yuk, worst defensive team ever full of low iq chuckers, i'm sure Thibs would love this starting 5...lol.

    Harris & Bev sound exactly like the kinds of players Thibs would happily take though. Throw Luc in there too.

    Harris is not a good/solid defender, and he's a 4 in today's game, you put him between Towns and Wiggins and yeah...that's not going to end well for your defense.

    Pat would be good, but how many games has he played in the last 3 years? A total of 60?

    Exactly. He wants to go to a crappy team in major market. That just tells you what his priority is.

    That doesn't appear to be true, anymore, though right? Hard to track all these Butler threads, but the 3-team list has been debunked by Woj, Shams and Codman now.

    Sounds like the agent originally gave Woj a list, for some unknown reason, maybe some theory he has that it would make the unlisted teams Jump onto the phone.

    I don't know if he gave Thibs a list. However I can tell you that when he was in Chicago he made comments about Los Angeles and NY being places he would consider playing. His constant comments about playing somewhere else were a big reason that the Bulls moved him to Minnesota. They didn't think they would be able to resign him.

    Man, Thibs gonna be stubborn. Media day is going to be interesting.

    In the meantime....what will owner Glen Taylor do? Does he force something?

    Reports have been out for some time that Taylor regrets letting Thibs name Layden GM and wanted Thibs to coach but not make roster decisions.

    Also, don't expect KAT to lobby for Thibs. He may in public say the right things, but he didn't like how he was coached or played.
