Butler has two years remaining on his contract but has the option to opt-out after this coming season and that's exactly what he would do.
The never-ending drama that is the National Basketball Association offseason continued on Wednesday when The Athletic reported that All-Star guard Jimmy Butler requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves.
In free agency next summer, Butler can secure a five-year deal worth around $190 million with his prior team or a four-year deal worth around $141 million with a new team. They were one of the several teams to make an offer for Leonard before he was eventually traded to the Toronto Raptors.

Butler made three All-Star trips with the Bulls and another with the Wolves last season. However, the Clippers can't convey a first-round pick until 2021 at the earliest.
