However, later in the day, ESPN also reported owner Glen Taylor had a different message, saying Butler is available and teams should contact him directly.
Despite the reluctance of head coach and president Tom Thibodeau, the Minnesota Timberwolves are determined to find a trade for Jimmy Butler before the start of the season. "Even if he has to agree to dissolve the contract, they'd do that before they go and trade Butler for draft picks".
Logan noted that things could change, but the Nets have adopted the same doctrine as the Clippers and Knicks, unwilling to sacrifice assets for a player they could pitch in free agency next summer.

Towns, who hasn't missed a game in his three seasons, averaged 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game in 2017-18.

He is entering the fourth season of a five-year, $92.3 million contract he signed with Chicago in 2015, but he can enter the free agent market next summer by opting out of the final year.
Butler has reportedly had a falling out with Timberwolves teammate Karl-Anthony Towns, and the meeting with Thibodeau was created to address those concerns.
