Word is, the Timberwolves are looking to move quickly in their Jimmy Butler deal.
Obviously, a number of teams are making their offers, in hopes of landing the prize.
Interestingly enough, a new team has joined the Butler sweepstakes, and might have the best chances of them all.
Buzz this afternoon is that the #Twolves have told at least one interested team that they can get a good player back. In other words, up your offer. More buzz: Toronto is interested.

After the Kahwi Leonard deal, the Raptors weren’t expected to make any more deals.
Though, with Butler becoming suddenly available, it might be a good idea for them to get serious about trading for him. As a solid two-way star, he’d be the perfect fit alongside Kawhi, and would probably increase his chances of staying.
It would likely mean giving up Serge Ibaka and a guy like Fred VanVleet, but that should be a price everyone in that front office is willing to pay.
