Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is open to trading superstar Jimmy Butler according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Another reason the Cavaliers should pursue Butler is the fact that, according to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, there's a mutual interest with Kyrie Irving to team up.

Butler was acquired last off-season by the Timberwolves, who ended a streak of 13 consecutive seasons without making the playoffs, which was the longest active playoff drought.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is accused of sexual assault. "She was like, 'I can't deal with this, '" Russell Ford said. While Ford claims that Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted her at a high school party, Kavanaugh maintains his innocence.

Butler, 29, has been excused from media day Monday and the early part of training camp as the Timberwolves look to strike a deal, The Athletic reported.

Taylor, who has overseen trades of All-Stars Kevin Love and Kevin Garnett out of Minnesota, would consider any trade in which the return is high and the Wolves' partner in the deal is willing to take on significant salary.

Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists last season for Minnesota, which made the playoffs for the first time since 2004. All three teams have the cap space to sign Butler to a maximum contract next summer should he reach free agency.

"On June 25, 2015, I was drafted to and committed to the Minnesota Timberwolves", Towns wrote in a statement released through his agent, via ESPN.

Butler, 29, is playing on the previous year of a contract that will pay him almost $20 million next season and has made it clear he does not intend to re-sign with Minnesota.

Butler has reportedly had a falling out with Timberwolves teammate Karl-Anthony Towns, and the meeting with Thibodeau was created to address those concerns. Players need to either win NBA MVP, DPOY or be named to one of the All-NBA teams in two of the previous three seasons to qualify for the super-max contract.
