How The Jimmy Butler Problem In Minnesota Could Break Their Future


It's no secret that Jimmy Butler and the Timberwolves organization are not on the best of terms. In fact, their relationship is nearing the point of no return.

Because of this glaring issue, both sides are expected sit down, where they will attempt to mend the broken partnership.

Thing is, there's a lot more than Butler's services at the line here for Minnesota. If they continue to draw this out, it could lead to problems with their other star, Karl Anthony-Towns.

According to Shams Charania, KAT will not sign his rookie extension with the team until he sees how they handle things with Butler.

Meaning, if they mess this up, their biggest and brightest young star may be out the door pretty soon as well.

Here's to hoping the team figures out what they're doing before they miss out on what could be their next franchise centerpiece.
