Report: Cleveland Cavaliers Actively Pursuing Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler Wolves

Minnesota Timberwolves disgruntled star Jimmy Butler requested a trade last week, and it seems the Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to make a deal.

According to one NBA insider, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert was seen privately speaking with Wolves owner Glen Taylor on Friday.

While any details of a potential deal have yet to be revealed, another expert revealed that a trade between the two clubs would not be hard to come by.

If the Cavs were to be able to bring Butler to Cleveland without dealing their current star Kevin Love in the process, they would quickly regain their spot as one of the most talented rosters in the Eastern Conference.

Last season, Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds. 4.9 assists per game. He is also a force on the defensive end of the court and is known for his competitive nature. While he would not fill the massive void that LeBron James created when he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers back in July, he would certainly help.

Whatever happens, it seems the Cavs may have one more big move in them this offseason before the 2018-19 season officially begins.
