Heat, Timberwolves re-open Butler trade talks

As for the Rockets, pulling off this trade for Butler effectively would be going for broke in hopes of winning an National Basketball Association title this season.

This news came one day after an ESPN report that said the Houston Rockets have included four first-round picks in their most recent Butler offer.

According to multiple reports, Butler and Wolves owner Glen Taylor reached an an agreement that boils down to the Wolves continuing to seek a trade for Butler and Butler agreeing to play up to par. "Minnesota was still adamant on receiving Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker, but Houston will not put Tucker on the table".

The Rockets are 1-3 and welcome the Clippers to Houston on Friday.

The belief is that Thibodeau would rather see an impact player included in the deal, and perhaps less draft picks since first rounders can not be packaged together in consecutive years.

Houston's push represents a desire to sacrifice some long-term roster flexibility and go all-in with a legitimate third star to partner with All-NBA guards James Harden and Chris Paul in pursuit of a championship.

Wojnarowski reported earlier in the month that the T-Wolves and Miami Heat were close to a deal involving Butler, but talks fractured after Minnesota pushed for more near the completion of the deal. Butler can opt out of his contract and become a free agent at the end of the season.

Draft picks, especially first-rounders, are a hot commodity in today's National Basketball Association, so they would at least have to consider Houston's offer rather than risk watching Butler walk away from the team for nothing after this season.

Our first trade will include a lot of draft picks, per the story above - and all have gone through the ESPN trade machine legally.
