Jimmy Butler hinting he wants to be traded to Spurs?
Jimmy Butler is reportedly unhappy with his current situation with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Kawhi Leonard is most certainly unhappy with his situation with the San Antonio Spurs. Does that mean the two teams should look into swapping star players?
If social media activity is any indication, Butler may be hoping that happens.
On Tuesday, Butler “liked” a comment on Instagram indicating that he should be traded to San Antonio.

Of course, Butler could claim he simply hit the “like” button by accident. But considering it happened at least twice, that would be tough to believe.

Butler can opt out of his contract after next season, and the reports we have heard about his level of frustration in Minnesota over the past few months seem to indicate he wants another change of scenery. With Leonard on his way out in San Antonio, the Spurs can offer arguably the best coach in basketball with a stable franchise that is in desperate need of a new star. You can understand how that situation would appeal to Butler.
