NYK gets Butler
MIN get THJ, Ntilkina, 2019 1st

Knicks do it if they are convinced that they will sign Irving after that. They will be at 25 mil with Lee, Knox, Robinson, Noah (stretched), which leaves 83 mil for Kyrie, Butler, Porzingis to share.

Minnesota remain competitive for the playoffs and they add two interesting assets in Ntilkina and that pick.

Lance Thomas and Dotson are still also on the books for next year, make it $73M.

I don’t see Frank and a 1st moving the scale with THJ’s deal. There are other teams that would have interest in bringing Butler in to get to work early on convincing him to resign that have better assets. The Lakers could give up an expiring deal with Ingram or Kuzma/ Hart and a pick for example. The Knicks would have to be really bad, and Frank would have to improve quite a bit for the Wolves to jump on this.

I think you’ve been gaslighted by Shizzee to many times.

I think Thomas and Dotson are not guaranteed @triangle. Also this weird situation with Butler feels that it will be hard for Minny to find a fair offer, so they will have to compromise or loose him for nothing.
As for the Lakers it seems to me that they are not willing to give up any of their assets. They are set to sign Kawhi and fill their roster again with vets.

Milspo, both Dotson and Thomas are guaranteed for next year, take a look at Basketball Reference if you would like confirmation.

I’m a Knicks fan, so I’m not trying to spew Lakers agenda, I’m just pointing out that there are better deals for Butler that are conceivably out there.
