Jimmy Butler turns down long-term offer from Timberwolves

Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler’s actions continue to increase speculation that he doesn’t see his long-term future in Minnesota.

According to Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor, Butler turned down Minnesota’s offer of a four-year extension worth around $110 million.

Taylor may be exerting some public pressure on Butler by saying this, but it’s interesting to see where the two sides go from here. The guard is entering the final guaranteed year of his contract, and has a player option for the 2019-20 season. He can get much more money from either the Timberwolves or another team next summer, though, so it’s not surprising to see that he turned this down.

Still, with rumors of his unhappiness in Minnesota now having some evidence behind them, this is a situation that bears watching.
