Towns Signs "Super-Maximum" Contract Extension to Remain with Timberwolves

NBA Playoffs Minnesota Timberwolves at Houston Rockets

"And there remains a real possibility that he will not report to training camp next week if a trade has not been consummated, sources said". Veteran players are slowly starting to filter in.

Marks has shown poise and moxie throughout his time as the Nets general manager. Then news broke on Wednesday.

The Timberwolves' trade leverage is practically non-existent, as Butler want to be gone and frankly they should want to remove a budding (or not already bloomed) locker room cancer.

Nonetheless, the four-time All Star wants out of Minnesota.

National Basketball Association writers have been having a field day at the Wolves' expense over the last couple of weeks. Many outlets had dubbed them the Timber-Bulls.

The super-max deal includes the ability for Towns to earn 30 percent of the Timberwolves' salary cap with the fulfillment of reaching one of the three All-NBA teams, or being voted league MVP or Defensive Player of the Year this season. The move reunited Deng with three other former Bulls in Butler, Derrick Rose, and Taj Gibson.

Maurizio Sarri explains why Liverpool are 'step ahead' of Blues
West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has managed to stop the rot with four points from the past two matches. West Ham has struggled out of the gate, winning just one of five matches.

The Timberwolves acquired Butler in June 2017.

Currently, Butler is under contract for the next two years, where he is due to make $20.44 million in 2018-2019 and $19.84 million in 2019-2020. He will now be faced with one of the most hard decisions of his front office career as he begins the next phase of the Brooklyn rebuild.

There have been rumors that Butler and Kyrie Irving would like to play together in the Eastern Conference, so trading for Butler may put Brooklyn in the lead of the Irving sweepstakes next summer.

The Towns news will undoubtedly be thankfully received by a Minnesota fan base desperate for some kind of positive news after several days of stories surrounding Butler's desire to leave the team.

Taylor has far less of a stomach for a dysfunctional season of feuding among Butler, Towns and forward Andrew Wiggins and the damage that'll do to the franchise's image, league sources said. ESPN reported that Towns' agent, Leon Rose of CAA Sports, informed the Wolves of his client's intention to sign the extension on Saturday evening.
