The Jimmy Butler saga continues. The latest reports suggest that the Houston Rockets made a trade offer for Butler, but it does not include the player that the Minnesota Timberwolves want.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Rockets’ offer includes two injured players, namely Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss.

Meanwhile, the Wolves demand Eric Gordon, last season’s sixth man award winner, to be included in the trade. But, Houston are not willing to let Gordon go.

Should the deal fail to fall through, the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers could be next to be talking with the Timberwolves regarding potential Jimmy Butler deal.
