Minnesota Timberwolves: 2 huge Jimmy Butler trades to Houston Rockets

Jimmy Butler Mavs Timberwolves

The Rockets are reengaging the Timberwolves in trade talks involving Jimmy Butler and offered four first-round picks in their most recent attempt to land the four-time All-Star, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports.

"Jimmy Butler update: According to a league source, The Wolves contacted the Rockets again Tuesday morning, after their failed deal with Miami this past weekend".

League rules prohibit teams from trading more than four first-round draft picks in one deal, and they can not trade first-rounders in consecutive years.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

This year has started out rough as the team dropped to 1-3 after a Wednesday night defeat to the Utah Jazz. Per Wojnarowski, the picks would come with limited protection. The team has said that they are committed to trading Butler when they are presented with a satisfactory offer.

The Rockets, who have been tied to Butler ever since the star swingman requested a trade from the Timberwolves, reportedly were turned off by Minnesota's initial asking price in a potential blockbuster deal.

A Heat team spokesperson confirmed to Ira Winderman of the Miami Sun-Sentinel last week that Heat president Pat Riley told the club's players prior to the start of the season that he is "pulling the plug" on trade negotiations involving Butler.

We have a two ideas of how to make this work and then we'll go from there - but before we do, it's important to note that Morey will only sign this deal if he gets some kind of confirmation that Butler intends to re-sign with the Rockets.
