On Basketball: Butler made his move _ now it's Wolves' turn

MIAMI (AP) — Jimmy Butler knows that NBA players can force their way into trades.

Forcing their way into a trade that suits the player, that’s an entirely different story.

Butler has told the Minnesota Timberwolves that he has no intentions of re-signing with the club next summer, his way of saying “trade me now” or “lose me for nothing later.” The Athletic first reported Butler’s decision.

It’s a power move that players can make.

Thing is, it comes with risk — because what happens next is not up to Butler.

This was the lesson learned from the Kawhi Leonard situation, from the Kyrie Irving situation, from the Paul George situation. Leonard supposedly was hoping for a trade from San Antonio to the Los Angeles Clippers. Irving wanted to be sent by Cleveland to either San Antonio and Miami. George was widely assumed to leave Indiana for the Los Angeles

From G League to GM, 76ers turn franchise over to Brand

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Only two years out of the NBA, Elton Brand is set to return to the league as a 39-year-old general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers.

For a franchise that underwent the painful “Process” for a few seasons and had its last GM caught up in a Twitter scandal, a youth movement in the front office could be what the Sixers need to take the next step into Eastern Conference contention.

Brand is ready to help lead the way.

“I’m going to rely on my team,” Brand said. “Not just on the court, but the off-the-court team. I can’t keep saying it enough. In my opinion, we are one of the top groups in the NBA.”

Brand was introduced Thursday at the Sixers complex as the new GM, and it was made clear the two-time All-Star will not yield the power to make the final decisions, but

Stephen Curry, Chris Paul and John Wall join forces, provide Hurricane Florence relief

Three of the NBA’s point guards are teaming up for a massive and much-needed off-court assist.

Stephen Curry, Chris Paul and John Wall are jointly aiding those affected by Hurricane Florence in North Carolina and the surrounding area. All three were born in North Carolina and have watched their home state ravaged by the latest hurricane to rip through the United States.

The effort, titled “Assist for Hurricane Florence,” has already raised more than $10,000, with a public goal of $500,000. Donations are being made through the Edward Charles Foundation.

Please join myself, @CP3 and @JohnWall supporting our home state of North Carolina and the surrounding area in #HurricaneFlorence recovery efforts! A lot of work to do and any amount helps those in the area get back on their feet quickly. https://t.co/RRdmxWFiJu

Reports: Jimmy Butler requests trade from Minnesota Timberwolves

All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler is reportedly seeking a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

Per The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Jon Krawczynski, Butler has given the Timberwolves a list of one to three teams with which he is open to signing a contract extension. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Brooklyn Nets, LA Clippers, New York Knicks are on Butler’s list of preferred trade destinations, with the Clippers looming as his favorite landing spot. Minnesota currently has no interest in trading him, Wojnarowski reports.

In addition, Butler may have given the Wolves a preferred date by which he’d like to be traded, reports Wojnarowski:

Butler told Tom Thibodeau, Minnesota’s president of basketball operations and coach, that he would like to be traded before reporting for Timberwolves media day on Monday and prefers the possibility of the Clippers — as well as the New York Knicks, league sources said. Butler told the Timberwolves that he

Donovan Mitchell, Ricky Rubio reveal Utah Jazz throwback jerseys

The Utah Jazz made the playoffs every year from 1984 through 2003. The first 12 years of that run were highlighted by the franchise’s ‘J’-note logo and uniforms, a look that will return in throwback form this upcoming season.

Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio revealed the old/new look via Twitter, providing a glimpse as to how Utah’s current generation will pay homage to an era that included Hall-of-Famers John Stockton and Karl Malone.

Mitchell in particular is a fan of the NBA old-school. The runner-up for 2017-18 Kia Rookie of the Year paid homage to Vince Carter jersey during the 2018 Slam Dunk Contest by wearing his Toronto Raptors jersey. The event also saw Mitchell don the jersey of former Jazz guard and 1980-81 Rookie of the Year Darrell

Blogtable: Player who has most to prove to start 2018-19 season?

* * *

Gaze into your crystal ball and tell me: which player has the most to prove to start the 2018-19 season?

* * *

Steve Aschburner:  Kawhi Leonard. The season-long drama over his fitness demands answers, both on the court and from his lips. Enough with the coy. Time  for a grown man to deal with other grown men and women properly, and that includes the Spurs fans, through the media. Leonard doesn’t have to cut open a vein and give us Manu. We’ll settle for him being an adult and giving us a proper, mature Tim, with a dry but full state-of-Kawhi address. Then he needs to go out and dominate at both ends like his old self, and not waste another year.

Shaun Powell:  Markelle Fultz, just barely ahead of Paul George (who must hold it down until Russell Westbrook heals) and Carmelo Anthony (can he help Houston?).

Blogtable: Two teams in Eastern Conference you'll be watching as camps open?

* * *

As camps open in the coming days, which two teams in the East will you be keeping an eye on and why?

* * *

Steve Aschburner:  The Raptors and Bucks. I’m keeping an eye on the Raptors because they’ve made dramatic changes at the risk of being too clever by half. Dwane Casey fired, Nick Nurse promoted, Kawhi Leonard acquired, DeMar DeRozan traded … when maybe all they needed was to have LeBron — the human wall physically and mentally between them and an Eastern Conference title — move his business westward. The Bucks, meanwhile, wasted a year of development and potential progress in 2017-18, in my opinion. With a new coaching staff and system, and with a shiny new arena as a diversion from real urgency, Milwaukee needs to take a major step this season and embrace its obligation to maximize Giannis Antetokounmpo’s career. Otherwise the
