Report: Timberwolves Wanted Ben Simmons In Trade For Jimmy Butler

Publish date:

With the Butler sweepstakes in full swing, the Timberwolves are expected to move the needle on a trade any minute now.

Among those teams in talks with the Wolves, have been the Heat, Nets, and Clippers.

Though, the Sixers even had interest... at least until Minnesota revealed their asking price for him.

(via Sixers Wire):

“One of the things that I’ve heard from a handful of sources is that like, with the Sixers for example, with the initial offer that they made, the counteroffer was like ‘we need Ben Simmons in a deal.'” O’Connor stated.

“It’s counter offers like that that make you wonder, is this actually for real?”

That's right, the Timberwolves asked for BEN SIMMONS in exchange for Butler, a trade that seems almost too ridiculous to be true.
