  • The Minnesota Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler has requested a trade, and betting odds are available for Butler's next NBA team.
  • The Miami Heat are the current favorites, followed by the Timberwolves, Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets.

On Friday, Timberwolves guard/forward Jimmy Butler requested a trade out of Minnesota. With Butler likely on the move, one book has opened lines regarding which team he’ll play for next.

Trades don’t usually happen overnight, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the T’wolves are still listed at +175, especially since head coach Tom Thibodeau says that he won’t complete any trade he feels is bad for Minnesota.

What may come as a slight surprise, however, is that they aren’t the favorites. That label belongs to the Heat, who’ve been listed at +115.

Here’s the complete list of Butler’s potential landing spots:

As Marc Stein of the New York Times reported today, the Heat have become Butler’s ideal destination.

That news conflicts with the original report that Butler was seeking a trade to the Clippers, Knicks or Nets — the three teams rounding out the top five on this list.
