According to Marc Stein of The New York Times, 29-year-old small forward Jimmy Butler wants to play for the Miami Heat. When Butler demanded a trade out of the Minnesota Timberwolves the Heat were among those who were seeking to get a four-time NBA All-Star.

Stein reports that both Jimmy Butler and the Heat are ready to collaborate, but the Heat “found it hard to get Minnesota to clearly communicate”.

As reported before, despite the fact that the Minnesota Timberwolves’ president of basketball operations and coach Tom Thibodeau is trying to keep Butler at the same time the Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor wants to solve this problem as soon as possible by trading the player.

Jimmy Butler also showed interest to play for the Brooklyn Nets, the Los Angeles Clippers and the New York Knicks.
