It's nothing as serious as the Bulls had past year with Rajon Rondo, Dwyane Wade and Butler, but it's the same type.

"He's chased excellence since his first day in the league", said Thibodeau.

Butler politely encouraged the haters to call him with complaints.

Still, Butler averaged 23.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game. "I got calls from Arkansas, Florida, New York City, and all over the country". Now that fans can connect directly to Butler, they're leaping at the opportunity. "It's a great fit for us, but it's a great fit for Jimmy as well". I'm just here to push them to the best of their abilities, and I know that they're gonna do that.

"Everybody is entitled to their opinion", he said. "He's a great person, he's a great leader and we're thrilled to have him". Afterward, Towns boldly declared that the Timberwolves' stars belonged in discussions about the NBA's elite trios with the addition of Butler.

More importantly, maybe for the first time since they hired coach Fred Hoiberg, it's the type of team that Hoiberg wants.

"You can use him at any perimeter spot", Hoiberg said. "When you're talking about one of the top players in the National Basketball Association being added to your squad, the whole focus changes". Big three, big whatever, let's get some big wins.

Here's hoping Jimmy Butler has an unlimited data plan.

76ers take Fultz, Lakers grab Ball to start NBA draft
Kennard and Mitchell being considered late lottery picks speak to the significant drop off after the top 10 or so guys. The Celtics simply don't have room on the roster for another high-level defensive player who can't shoot 3-pointers.


With Wiggins and Towns having quality seasons a year ago for the club, a proven two-way star is exactly what they need to get on the path to the playoffs, and with the addition of Patton they now have a promising backup for Towns.

"Throughout my whole life, I had a lot of ups and downs", said Dunn, whose tenacity on defense at least gave Minnesota something.

"A really good friend of mine", Butler said.

Also rumored is Kyle Lowry in free agency.

The Minnesota Timberwolves began the draft and off-season about as well as any team could.

With the Wolves in the rumor mill around the league, we are going to take a look at the biggest position of need for Minnesota.

"It's always hard when anyone gets traded, but it's a part of the business", Jones said.

Consider the line up of Towns, (a seven foot centre with a solid jump shot), Wiggins, (an offensive threat and good perimeter scorer) Butler, who we already know can score from anywhere on the court, Griffin and Rubio.
