While everyone in Miami would obviously love to have the All-Star, there is one key Heat member who desperately wants to see Butler come to South Florida.
If the Boston Celtics aren't the team that lands Jimmy Butler, it won't be a surprise to anyone.
According to ESPN, the Timberwolves are seeking quality veterans, top prospects, future assets and cap relief. Meanwhile, there have been numerous reports that Thibodeau and his assistant, general manager Scott Layden, have been dragging their feet on trading Butler and ignoring an directive from owner Glen Taylor to get a trade done.

"Our reality is that he has requested a trade, so we'll honor that", said Timberwolves head coach and president of basketball operations Tom Thibodeau.
The New York Times' Mark Stein tweeted Wednesday morning that Butler and his agent "have informed Wolves ownership that Miami is Butler's preferred trade destination". It's even more obvious when his asking price is Ben Simmons.
Thibodeau reportedly tried to convince Butler to stay during a meeting on Monday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, but the 29-year-old star "remained resolute" on his desire for a trade. He was traded to the Timberwolves before last season. Others such as the Detroit Pistons, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets, Washington Wizards and Dallas Mavericks have at least expressed an interest in Butler. He isn't inclined to trade the forward who helped Minnesota make the playoffs for the first time since 2004, and it's hard to blame him.
