Pelicans-Clippers

Pelicans get Wesley Johnson

Clippers get Ajinca (waive)

Pelicans get wing help

Clips get cap relief and get to 15 man roster

10 Oct 2018 20:17:31
Magic trade Gordon to clippers
Clippers send Beverly and Alexnder

10 Oct 2018 23:01:45
Magic declined that deal.

11 Oct 2018 03:12:33
Magic need a pg. Issac, Gordon and bamba are all 4s. The minutes and match aren't good. I love the magic but paying Gordon isn't goint to help develop.

11 Oct 2018 11:21:25
I know the Clips want to unload a PG for front court help, but I don’t see Alexander moving in a deal, unless it was a package for a real star player.

05 Oct 2018 19:03:37
Ind-Lac

Indiana- Tobias Harris

Clips- Joseph,Leaf and 1st

Indiana gets another scoring option outside of Oladipo and puts them closer to the top of the east

Clippers get a 1st out of Harris who already turned down an extension and will most likely walk.

05 Oct 2018 19:44:47
Harris wants to try and play for a little better deal. He likes the clippers and wants to stay. I would take this deal if I was the clippers though. Keep or trade a PG to the suns for warren or something. Good trade for the clips.

05 Oct 2018 22:45:52
Clips are already busting at the seams with PG’s, Joseph would be of no interest.

03 Oct 2018 02:48:57
I think that Butler's value now is so low. It's hard to trade for a guy who is so demanding and didn't even get along with young stars. His real value now is a vet, a pick (mid to late 1st) & one young prospect i think.

With his preferred teams the most likely offer, not saying that those teams can't offer more are

LAC: Robinson, Gallinari, Thornwell & 1st

MIA: Winslow, Olynyk & 1st (protected)

NYK: Lee, Ntilikina & protected 1st

BKN: Crabbe, LeVert & 1st round pick

i don't know how will MIN do with him right now. This is just my opinion.

03 Oct 2018 16:49:35
Clippers trade a no and others are reasonable. I believe the wolves wouldn't sign no other players next year, so those players would help out then to lose for nothing.

03 Oct 2018 18:32:28
The only reason that the Clippers/ Gallinari idea would work is because the TWolves will not have cap flexibility for awhile anyways. Gallinari they would get for this year and next year. other teams offer that as well, but with the clippers trade they get a starting 4, 2 young shooting guards and a 1st. however, the first won't be until like 2023.

04 Oct 2018 02:52:50
Wolves are paying towns big money and Wiggins money they can't afford gal.

02 Oct 2018 10:43:33
PHX-MIN-LAC

PHX: S.Gilgeous-Alexander, G.Dieng

MIN: T.Chandler (exp), T.Warren, D.Gallinari, Jerome Robinson & 1st round pick LAC

LAC: J.Butler, D.Bender

29 Sep 2018 03:11:50
LAC/MIN

LAC get Jimmy Butler & Gorgui Dieng

MIN get Danilo Gallinari, Lou Williams & Jerome Robinson

Gallo and Dieng is a wash in terms of contract but the MIN could benefit if Gallo plays well. Williams value is high because of his god contract while they get a decent asset. If the Clippers could keep Butler this is a win

LAC

Pg Beverley/Teodosic
Sg Bradley/Shai/Thornwell
Sf Butler/Johnson/Wallace
Pf Harris/Harrell/Scott
Ce Gortat/Dieng/Marjanovic

MIN

Pg Teague/Rose/Jones
Sg Wiggins/Williams
Sf Gallinari/Robinson/Deng
Pf Gibson/Tolliver
Ce Towns/Patton

29 Sep 2018 16:21:58
On the surface the trade looks like a bad return for Minny. Gallo contributing is pretty unlikely based on his injury record so i don't think its a push unloading him for Dieng. Williams is on a good contract so maybe Clips add a 1st rounder with light protaction.

30 Sep 2018 02:20:27
I am on the opposite side of DAC813. This is too much from Clippers. Gallo is really good and appears healthy this year. He is way better than Dieng. Also, Clippers think they can get Leonard next summer. They would much rather have Gallo than Dieng on their roster to attract Leonard.

28 Sep 2018 07:38:19
Kuzma,kcp, and Stevenson plus 2019 pick for Butler. James mcgee Butler rondo and Ingram better then Irving smith James tt and love. Gives Lakers better chance to win even if Butler go to NY teams or the clippers it be worth it

28 Sep 2018 13:04:44
Nah Lebron was 3-4 years younger then and there ain’t know one close to Kyrie in that line up.

28 Sep 2018 15:41:18
It's closer than I'd like to think, but Rad is right saying LeBron was younger then. None of them are to Irving's level, but Butler is close. The big issue to me is who in the Lakers group is on par with Love? Ingram has potential, but Love is still really good, no matter how much they made him the scapegoat in Cleveland. McGee and Rondo might be better than Smith and Thompson, but I don't think they are. It's pretty even there. So all in all, the Cavs group is better than the Lakers. but not by a landslide.

28 Sep 2018 16:18:45
also, the wolves want more than just kuzma and a likely super late 1st.

28 Sep 2018 16:58:08
Lakers will have to give up Ingram if they want Butler. Not going to happen. They would rather try to poach him next summer.

28 Sep 2018 17:45:49
This offer better then most the ones I seen online, IT'S why Butler still there cause teams not giving up nothing good to get him. This better then the one posted above and below. You get a young player who was first rookie team on a great contract. a good player with experience who can shooot. Plus a mystery pick between 22-28 in a decent draft.

28 Sep 2018 17:55:05
Soxfan I think differently because love wasnt really a good fit or didn't play good enough defense. green used to lock love down he not doing that to James playing pf and Butler at sf with Ingram at the two. Love was there third option but at times Smith was really especially 2016.

28 Sep 2018 20:33:00
It's difficult to trade with the Lakers or Celtics. They make inferior offers and hope someone is dumb enough to bite. If they lose out on a trade they tamper with the player's contract and then try to steal him in free agency.

25 Sep 2018 14:02:23
Minny gets:
-Gallo
-J. Robinson
-Gortat
-Bender
-Thornwell
-2021 1st (1-15 protected) Suns
-2019 2nd

Clippers get:
-Butler
-Chandler

Suns get:
-Beverley
-Gibson.

24 Sep 2018 17:40:09
- Clippers get: Hamidou Diallo, '21 2nd (From OKC)
PG SGA/Williams/Teodosic
SG Bradley/Robinson/Diallo
SF Gallinari/Johnson/Thornwell
PF Harris/Mbah a Moute/Scott
C Gortat/Harrell/Marjanovic
- Clear up minutes for SGA and Robinson, get back a young prospect and a second rounder.

- Suns get: Dennis Schroder
PG Schroder/Okobo/Harrison
SG Booker/Daniels/Melton
SF Jackson/Bridges/Peters
PF Ariza/Anderson/Bender
C Ayton/Holmes/Chandler
- Get their starting point guard who fits their timeline. Also on a long term contract. Clear up minutes for Jackson and Bridges.

- Thunder get: T.J. Warren, Patrick Beverley
PG Westbrook/Beverley/Felton
SG Roberson/Abrines/Cabarrot
SF George/Warren/Ferguson/Nader
PF Grant/Patterson
C Adams/Noel/Davis
- Get a young, two-way Wing for their bench who is on a long term contract. Get a defense-first Guard off the bench.

24 Sep 2018 19:27:30
Warren is a better player and his current value and contract are far better than shroeder. Suns wouldn't do it.

24 Sep 2018 20:29:46
Warren can't shoot 3s. Shroeder can start at PG. Suns say yes.

24 Sep 2018 20:57:53
Okc get two guys better than the one guy they trade?

24 Sep 2018 22:27:19
Suns pass. I think Phoenix would be smart to just start Booker at PG than trade for a below average starting PG. Also, Schroeder can't shoot 3's either Warlock. And he's paid quite a bit more than Warren.

25 Sep 2018 04:46:44
I don´t think the Suns should do this because Schroder isn´t good enough. Next off-season, the Suns could sign some one just as good him, if not better. Someone like R. Rondo, E. Payton, R. Rubio, K. Walker, or T. Rozier would be a better option than Schroder. The Suns are in no rush to find their point guard of the future. Developing Ayton and Jackson should be their biggest priority.

However, with their recent moves of acquiring Ryan Anderson and Trevor Ariza, it does look like the Suns are interested in making a playoff push with these veterans. I would not be suprised if the Suns made a stupid move like this.

25 Sep 2018 18:30:02
The Clippers already have Avery Bradley, Lou Williams, Jerome Robinson, Sindarious Thornwell, and Tyrone Wallace all who can play the 2. Why would they trade their starting PG for another SG who won't play and worthless picks?

24 Sep 2018 15:36:54
Nuggets get - Beverley and Carroll
- Gets much needed perimeter D

Clippers get - Kurucs
- Gets a young forward prospect

Wolves get - Harris and RHJ (maybe a pick too)
- 2 young players that adds good defense and Harris adds shooting

Nets get - Jimmy Butler
- Gets their star to build around and hope to sign Kyrie Irving

Thomas/Beverley
Murray/Barton
Carroll/MPJ(Start when 100%)
Milsap/Lyles
Jokic/Plumlee

Bradley/Williams
Gallo/Robinson
Harris/Scott(Kurucs)

Harris/Okojie
Wiggins/Bates-Diop/Deng
RHJ/Gibson
Towns/Dieng

Irving(if not Resign Dinwiddie)
Russell/Harris
Butler/Levert
Arthur/Faried
Allen/Davis

24 Sep 2018 15:49:06
What are the nuggets trading?

24 Sep 2018 15:57:12
So Minnesota gets two soon to be free agents for Butler. How about no.

24 Sep 2018 17:06:55
What are the Nets giving up of value?

24 Sep 2018 19:29:15
Gary Harris? Thought it was tobias.

24 Sep 2018 20:30:49
Who is Kurucs?

24 Sep 2018 20:59:10
Dont clippers have lots of young forwards already?

24 Sep 2018 22:42:46
Care to add a name? There are three Harris. Tobias, Gary and Joe. Who?

24 Sep 2018 15:23:19
Clippers: Harris, Beverly, Gallinari

Wolves: Butler, Dieng

24 Sep 2018 17:34:53
If Thibs gets his way and minny focuses on established talent over youth, this is a nice move. Harris isn’t a huge step down from Butler. Beverly is one of the better backup PGs in the NBA. And Gallo isn’t much different than Dieng in terms of negative value, but when he’s on the court he’s much better than Dieng.

I could see minny holding out for Williams instead of Beverly if they have to take on Gallo, but the framework is plausible.

24 Sep 2018 18:28:05
I think its a pretty good trade, i just don't think Clips can unload Gallo for that return. Maybe add a pick?

24 Sep 2018 19:39:08
Clips throw in the protected half of the 2019 pick. 1-14 goes to wolves, 15-30 goes to celtics? Not much of an offer with butler coming into the fold but it's not a bad gamble for the wolves with Harris, Beverly, Gallinari leaving, the clips are still a likely fringe playoff team in the west. Thanx bmiller66, that was my goal to post a trade consistent with the media rumors of butlers reported requests, and thibs wanting to stay competitive. Miami, if they deal the 2019 1st, which they would, and a selection of players with Dieng involved is also a good offer. LA and Miami are leading the sweepstakes so far I think according to rumors.

24 Sep 2018 20:33:20
Galinari is way better than Dieng. If he is healthy, Galinari is nearly worth his salary. Dieng couldn't carry his salary to the bank with an armored car.

24 Sep 2018 20:59:54
Bece et Ky is a better player than minny pg.

24 Sep 2018 21:59:36
That's true Warlock. If Gallo was ever healthy he'd be considerably more valuable than Dieng. But he's played in over 60 games once in the last 5 years.

Would you rather have a guy that scores 15 ppg 45 games a year and doesn't play the remaining? Or an average backup center that plays every game? To me, it's probably a push considering Dieng makes a bit less.

24 Sep 2018 22:53:33
Dieng has also started at PF for a couple of years next to Towns. He has versatility.

25 Sep 2018 00:36:48
I don't think any GM anticipates that a guy is only going to play 45 games a year. Galainari's injuries have been numerous, but he can recover. I saw him play this summer in the Africa game. He looked great. Best player in the game (including Embid, Whiteside, Gay, ect. ) . I have to believe that Galinari is going to play a full season. He might avg. close to 20 pts. Dieng will be lucky to play 10 minutes a game and avg. 6 pts. a game. No comparison.

25 Sep 2018 17:02:57
If you're not factoring in injury history, then you are a complete fool. Assuming a guy that has never stayed healthy will stay healthy is the road to getting fired as a GM.

And yeah, that goes for Embiid too. I would hate to inherit him as a new coach or GM. He's a walking timebomb.

Also, Dieng averaged 10 and 8 for two years before last year. If you expect Gallo to do something he hasn't done for a few years, I would expect Dieng to bounce back from a down year too.

24 Sep 2018 00:35:15
Wolves - Clippers

Wolves get: Tobias Harris, Patrick Beverly, Jerome Robinson, future 1st.

Clippers get: Jimmy Butler, Tyus Jones.

24 Sep 2018 17:37:10
That's the kind of trade that would get the Wolves' attention. Beverly is still a lockdown defender, Harris is a solid all around guy, and Robinson looks to me to be a great sixth man at the worst down the road. It doesn't bowl you over, but it's a move they would have to consider.

24 Sep 2018 18:03:36
What if Beverly and Harris leave this not no good Trade. Wolves need rookie contracts or 3 years plus signed players.

24 Sep 2018 20:47:37
Harris is looking for a long term deal around 25mm per, maybe a little less. He is going to sign with someone, why not Minnesota. I believe they would have bird rights and can offer a 5 year deal vs. 4 yrs. and no bird rights. I have heard that Harris is thinking about signing with the Kings so they would be biggest competition. Minnesota offers the better situation.

Beverly is good, but if he walks no big deal. Robinson has potential and is on a rookie deal. Plus they get a 1st pick.

May be the best deal they get for Butler.

22 Sep 2018 13:54:19
Clippers get Jimmy Butler

Magic get Shai Gielgeous-Alexander, Jerome Robinson and Danilo Gallinari

Wolves get Evan Fournier and Jonathan Simmons

22 Sep 2018 14:28:21
How about Minnesota and LA just cut the Magic out of this trade.

22 Sep 2018 23:42:20
Clips don't get Butler AND shed Gallinari for that return IMO.

21 Sep 2018 14:02:33
Clippers Trade Tobias Harris Jerome Robinson

Wolves Trade Jimmy Butler Tyus Jones 2019 second round pick

Jimmy Butler wanted out & Tyus Jones wanted out of Minnesota

What y'all think??

21 Sep 2018 15:10:20
I don't think the clippers would be interested in anything other than maybe gallinari straight up because they can sign butler in the off season. Clippers have quite a few expiring contracts and a trade with them doesn't seem likely to me other than gallimari.

21 Sep 2018 17:50:38
Gallo for Butler straight up? Really? A horrible contract for an expiring all star? That's pure insanity.

I realize the Clippers have cap space, but what is the last meaningful free agent signing they had? Not a resigning, but someone that left their team to join the Clippers in free agency. That's not a franchise that should rely on these type of guys just coming there.

21 Sep 2018 17:52:37
So many people on this site say the words "why trade for them when they can just sign [player] in the offseason? ". Hasn't that mindset proven to be false in almost every instance? Especially if you're the Clippers and Knicks! The Knicks and Clippers have done it more than once and struck out every time. The Lakers relied on it and were terrible for half a decade (and continue to rely on it to potentially waste Lebron's final few years) . They have waited on Lebron's signing for 8 years.

Paul George was going to the Lakers. Lebron was going to the Knicks, then the Lakers (not this time, but last time) . Durant was headed to the Lakers/ Knicks/ Clippers. Cousins is headed to the Lakers. Westbrook won't resign in OKC, he'll sign with the Lakers. Aldrdige was headed to Dallas. So was Deandre Jordan.

21 Sep 2018 21:43:06
Gallo for Butler straight up would not have happened at ANY point in Gallo's career.

21 Sep 2018 21:47:15
I have no clue about anything you mentioned. Aldridge to dallas? Lbj to the knicks? It may have been in the media but I didn't take it seriously. Just like I am not buying into the idea a team will trade their future for a guy that said he would play for your team in 9 months. Your just feeding fantasy and hype, not reality. Wolves are saying they won't trade butler yet anyway and at the deadline he is not worth much. Certainly not drafted or future draft players. So yeah, go through the clippers lineup and find a player not young and just drafted or signed and come up with a realistic package. Gallinari is it. Great, you don't like him. I didn't post it because I care about your personal facebook page. I posted it because the clippers don't have much to trade except expiring contracts and future. You don't sign and deal griffin to trade away all that was acquired for another old guy 9 months later. It doesn't make sense in any world. Just like butler going to the Sixers. Every move the Sixers have done and not done indicates they are nowhere near giving a sh*t about a trade for butler. They want their assets. Particularly the younger ones.

21 Sep 2018 21:55:02
@BMiller all of those players that you listed were all rumors, most i've never even heard of like lebron to the knicks or kd to the clippers, but the 3 teams that Butler listed were listed as preferred teams that he would resign with.

In regards to why would people sign with the clippers and the whole who was the last big free agent to sign with them narrative, that's pointless. They're in LA, with a new owner, new executives like Jerry West (who was a hugeeee recruiter for the warriors among other teams) . Butler lives in LA all offseason and they have the room to bring another star with him. It all makes sense.

The knicks have the same ownership in Dolan. If the clippers were still owned by sterling, that would make sense, but they're not. they're owned by a guy who is spending his money to bring in top notch executives and building new stadiums and practice facilities.

21 Sep 2018 22:28:39
And is going to get the clippers out of staples center with his and others money. Not taxpayers. It's a big deal for the clippers and anyone going to the largest market in the NBA.

21 Sep 2018 23:09:33
Show me the paper Butler wrote that included those 3 teams. If you can't, it's a rumor just like any other player. Also, George was the EXACT same situation. He "said" he wanted to play in LA. Then it didn't happen. Butler has now "said" he wants to play for those 3 teams. I'll believe it when I see it.

If you never heard Lebron to NY or KD to the Clippers, go look it up. It was a real thing. Heck, there's an article about "All the times the Clippers fooled themselves into thinking they would land a meaningful free agent". Durant, Lebron, Kobe, George all on that list. Butler could easily be next.

Also, best case scenario, you have a 33% chance at getting him if that list is true. If you trade for him, you prove you are committed to him and increase those odds. It's not like the list was one team.

21 Sep 2018 23:13:13
Btec: Explain why Minny would ever consider that trade. I think they'd be better off just waiving Butler right now than taking Gallo's terrible contract. Or trade Butler for Evan Turner, at least he can get on the court.

And again, how is this Butler stuff not just the media? When did Butler call a press conference and personally state these things? Did I miss it?

22 Sep 2018 01:48:58
If they going to take injurynari, lakers can over kcp beasly and Hart jus for a potential rental to give James better chance to win this year.

22 Sep 2018 01:54:16
Butlers agent, thibodeau, the wolves owner have all confirmed butler asked out and gave a list of preferences. (obviously because of his expiring contract) This is more than a rumor I think. I have no idea what Thibodeau wants really but with the moves the clippers have been making and jerry west as captain I really find it hard to believe the clippers would offer much in a trade beyond expiring deals or gallinari. It would shock me if Robinson or Alexander or a future pick (a 1st anyway) were traded for butler. (clippers already traded 2019 protected to the celtics) . We are truly worlds apart if you would rather have turner than gallinari on your team.

22 Sep 2018 14:39:51
Gallo has played 481 games in 9 years. That’s 50 games a season. He can’t stay on the court. I’d take an interior player making less money over paying Gallo 44 million to rehab over the next two years.

And like I said, even if all this is true, the Clippers aren’t the only team on this rumored list, they’re not holding all the cards. If they want him, they have to give up assets. If they don’t want him, then it’s a pointless conversation.

22 Sep 2018 17:12:47
We agree on something, I also think the NY teams desire butler more and have the right pieces to get something done in this particular situation. Jerry west is a shark, he'll get a deal done if it's right.

20 Sep 2018 20:23:08
LAC/ PHX/ MIN

Clippers get Butler

Suns get Beverley, Dieng

TWolves get Gallinari, TJ Warren, Clippers 2020 1st

Clippers get Butler. He takes Gallo's spot in the books which helps keep room for almost signing 2 max free agents.

Suns get Beverley and a backup big who can play behind ayton and learn from chandler.

Twolves get a long term starting SF in warren who is signed to a good deal and can move wiggins to the 2. Gallinari can start at the 4 and let towns operate down low and they get a 1st rounder.

20 Sep 2018 23:52:27
Good try, but the Suns get the short end of the stick here. They get Beverly, but Deing is a bad contract so he is a negative, and they give up Warren.

Suns say NO.

20 Sep 2018 01:43:25
let's start flooding Jimmy trades. I think it will be hard for other teams to trade for him since he was seeking the super max when he was already 30 and MIN would have no leverage so this is the best deal that could work for me

LAC-MIN

LAC: Jimmy Butler, Gorgui Dieng

MIN: Avery Bradley (exp), Jerome Robinson, Danilo Gallinari, 1st round pick (lottery protected)

with the way the stars are being traded, i think this is what the Clips could offer

LAC

Beverley-Shai-Teodosic
Butler-Williams
Harris-Johnson-Thornwell
Mbah-Harrell
Gortat-Dieng-Marjanovic

MIN

Pg Teague-Rose-Jones
Sg Wiggins-Bradley
Sf Gallinari-Robinson-Okogie
Pf Gibson-Tolliver
Ce Towns-Patton

20 Sep 2018 13:08:26
No one wants Dieng in a butler deal. Trading for butler is committing to 30 mil at least next season. unlikely a team want will to make room for 3 years, 48 mil worth of Dieng.

20 Sep 2018 14:24:19
If the Clips go after Butler, it will be to pair with another star this offseason. They won’t want additional long term salary commitments in a deal. Butler for Bradley, Robinson, top 10 protected first and a 2nd is more likely. Bradley would fit Thibs system well.

20 Sep 2018 17:04:11
I agree with Triangle O. Butler for Bradley, Robinson, Clippers 1st, Clippers 2nd, is the most realistic trade rumor I have seen so far. It still might not be enough for Minnesota. I think Wolves will think about it and hope for better offers for now. I think Wolves will make a deal in the next two weeks.

21 Sep 2018 02:53:16
It's a deadline deal because bradley can't be traded until dec.15. I think wolves deal him before then. More value.

20 Sep 2018 05:03:46
Just because Butler wants clippers Knicks and nets doesn't mean he gets it. And I doubt they give up much when they can get him in FA and other teams won't give much for a rental.

Thunder T-Wolves Suns

T-Wolves get Roberson, Warren, thunder 2nd round pick or 1st if necessary.
Thunder get Butler
Suns get Schroder 2nd round pick

Thunder make a killer starting five that will compete with warriors.
T-Wolves get an all defensive player which thibs would like, a good young player in Warren, and a pick.
Suns address their PG need. Warren is a lil better but not much than Schroder they average the same amount of points and are the same age. Schroder being a PG is a better playmaker and gets more assist and is starting caliber which is what they need. They get a 2nd to make it a lil better for them.

20 Sep 2018 17:52:29
This is not a bad idea. Biggest problem is Thunder paying all of their players. They would be by far the largest payroll and luxury tax payments in history in 2019.

20 Sep 2018 04:42:02
Just because Butler wants clippers Knicks and nets doesn't mean he gets it. And I doubt they give up much when they can get him in FA and other teams won't give much for a rental.

Thunder T-Wolves

T-Wolves get Roberson, Schroder, 1st and 2nd pick
Thunder get Butler

Thunder make a killer starting five that will compete with warriors.
T-Wolves get an all defensive player which thibs would like, a starting caliber PG, and a couple of picks.

20 Sep 2018 03:27:46
*T wolves get: Tobias Harris, Jerome Robinson, Patrick Beverley, 2021 2nd
*Clippers get: Jimmy Butler, Tyus Jones

- T wolves do this to send JB to his desired destination. Their return is probably the best they could get knowing his situation is similar to Kawhi's (one year rental). Harris and Beverley are one year rentals so they can clear cap to get a replacement for JB. Robinson is what they can get and he's a young lottery pick who has potential to be a great player.
-Clips do this to get JB right now. Waiting till free agency is a huge risk with other teams like the Knicks and Nets, his other desired destinations, will pursue him. They could spend this year to convince him to stay and also it's his #1 place to go so he'll likely resign. They get a young guard who has proven a good bench piece before Rose took his minutes. The reason for trading Robinson is he was not going to get minutes behind Bradley, williams, SGA, Teodosic, and now Jones. Getting Butler for this return is reasonable since they're swapping exp contracts for exp contract so it doesn't hurt them financially this offseason either. Clips need to seize this opportunity since Butler wants to go there; they'd be dumb enough to pass on a star. Also they're not certain on getting Kawhi, so getting butler is a must.

T-Wolves are not interested in expiring contracts. They are not an attractive location for free agents, so they will want a star on a longer term deal to headline the trade. Clippers best bet is to include Avery Bradley, Robinson, and picks.

I believe Bradley is expiring.

Bradley signed a 2 year $25mm deal this year. $12mm in 2018, $13mm in 2019 with only $2mm guaranteed.
