    The Hornets at that time had no problems sending CP3 to the Lakers before Stern vetoed the trade and the Mavericks had no problem helping GS get KD by taking on Bogus contract but the Wolves won't trade Jimmy Butler to the Rockets because they are in the same conference even tho we are offering 4 freaking first round picks for a guy that will walk in less than 6 months. SMH we always getting screwed

    Chris Paul was dealt to the Rockets before the Lakers... Stern vetoed both deals.

    I go with the gossip rumor. The timelines matchup.

    *Butler/gf of KAT sleep together in Italy.
    *KAT & now ex-girlfriend delete all images of each other around that time.
    *KAT refuses to sign extension if Butler is still with team.
    *Butler demands trade.
    *KAT signs extension soon after.

    Butler needs out of that situation and KAT was promised Butler would be gone soon.

    Some rumors are more interesting than the other rumors.

    You and I share the same opinion on most things, but this isn't one. He isn't a third star, no, but James Johnson is another elite role player that I personally believe is better than both Tucker and Ariza. We need more of those "super role players" if we can't get another star just yet.

    I’ve moved on. He’d be an upgrade on the court; off, not so sure. Let’s snag Kevin Love. IMIT!

    Exactly, especially when Rocket switches on defence. He's considered a big man but quick and agile enough to guard perimeter players.

    If you are switching against GSW imagine him switching to Curry or Klay as opposed to other 6'3-6'5 guards, I would think his presence along and his quickness would distract their shots more than those guards.

    He's a hound dog that gets at it like PJ but with scary neck tattoos. We need him.

    @Nook was spot on.



    At least now we know for sure the Wolves have no interest in him as a player (not shocking of course). If anything, he's an expiring contract now...

    I'm at a bit of a loss. Some great Ears are telling me info that cannot be confirmed in multiple "spots," but I firmly stand by my past posts related to Jimmy. Our record sucks, and I don't know if Jimmy fixes that, but I do know that we miss Trevor Freaking Ariza as a player, locker room voice and the dependable durability. Come home soon?
    ___

    I'll add these very minuscule whispers though:

    Don't believe ALL of the petty rumors. Many have been made up by fans, and systematically, by players' management teams. Jimmy will be gone once Thibs gives up his dimming role.
    - KAT is not innocent in this...the boy who cried wolf...timberwolf? terrible joke lol
    - Wiggs just wants to be the man, but everyone knows he can't be the man. If not packaged, he will become the "face."
    -There have always been legs to Jimmy to Houston (like my past posts suggested) but it's complicated enough that some parts are greater than the whole. Jimmy and James are tight...Jimmy wants to win, and despite all the money talk, I stand by the winning >money belief. Jimmy will be paid regardless, but he's been losing for some time, and he's one of the most competitive guys in the league. Ron Artest competitive. Ron Artest crazy when things are rotten.
    -Our record leads some to panic...I've been told that's not the mindset in Houston, but "tweaks" are necessary. Is Jimmy a tweak? No, Jimmy is a monster move.
    -EGO is not a mandatory Minnesota piece in a trade for Jimmy. Also, One good Ear says Morey sees EGO's value to our championship hopes as essential.
    -The 4 pick offering is both true and false. True of picks offered, but the #4 has been suggested as inaccurate. (Makes sense in Moreyland)
    -Jimmy's money and interest in Minny parts places weight on the 3-team scenario I've mentioned. Even more so now...Miami never left, LAC is still teasing and New York has made a play. *These intrigue me, as I don't think Jimmy solves our issues altogether, but he adds some awesome potential to our team. I like some Freebirds in Minny, Miami, LAC and NY (also Brooklyn)
    ******Thibs has lost his locker room, despite his interviews discussing support. Jimmy has created cliques (sound familiar); Kat has a clique (sound familiar) and the guys who are neutral are uncomfortable. Thibs won't address it. Good Ear, though very early: Thibs is fired/bought out after Jimmy saga ends.

    ******I will likely exit this conversation (though read/lurk) because, as I've mentioned, my reach into this is not very strong. I am not retracting anything, but being respectful and honest to recognize someone else may have a longer reach with quicker intel.****

    If Jimmy goes to LAC then I would love to snag Harrel and Bev back. Idk how Bev would feel about it but he can probably deal with it for a year.
