The news is different than what was reported of the Wolves' front office earlier on Friday, who reportedly told teams they meant to keep Butler. In his first three seasons in the NBA, Towns has displayed great durability and has not missed a single game in his career.
Thibodeau - who oversees Layden, the point person on trade talks with outside GMs - wants to hold on to Butler and navigate the season with him.
Grassley grants Christine Blasey Ford another extension to make up her mind
On Friday, Trump tweeted that if the incident was "as bad" as Ford says, then she or her parents should've contacted the police. Grassley announced the extension on Twitter in a post with an apologetic tone that was addressed to Kavanaugh.
Nevertheless, Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor plans to be heavily involved in the decision-making process with president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau and GM Scott Layden, league sources said. Wojnarowski adds that the Miami Heat also have interest in Butler, but lack the salary cap space to pursue him next summer.
As previously noted though, Minnesota will have the final say on Butler trade request and where he lands, which could ultimately end up being the difference of $50 million and another year on a future contract.
Manchester United vs Wolves: Mourinho drops Martial, Alexis to start EPL clash
United have recovered from back-to-back defeats to Brighton and Tottenham in August to move back towards the top of the table. Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes they're now benefiting from Paul Pogba 's World Cup triumph.
Fast forward to now, and all is not well between Butler and his new team.
Maybe the reason Butler didn't list the Lakers on his preferred destinations because he, too, knew how unrealistic it was, or maybe he actually doesn't want to play second fiddle to James, as reports have suggested. The trio of Russell, Wiggins and Towns would give the Timberwolves a very talented core of players all under the age of 24. He was an All-Star last season and was the league's Rookie of the Year in 2016.
Towns' willingness to finally sign his max deal means that he nearly certainly has been assured he's never going to have to see Butler in the Wolves' locker room ever again. However, they got eliminated by the Houston Rockets in the first round.

Now it is very hard because in the first part of the season it is very important to play with a very solid team. Guardiola has been reportedly keen to improve Sane's attitude, but the same can't be said for Bernardo Silva.
