Latest Trade Rumor: Caron Butler To The Timberwolves

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Monday, June 22, 2009

Don't get too scared after reading the title...more of speculation than a rumor...
Alerted on Twitter by @Truth_About_It, Minnesota Timberwolves Press is guessing the following trade could happen:

Caron Butler, Javaris Crittenton, & The #5 Pick (why don't the Wiz throw in Gilbert too) for Mike Miller, Randy Foye, and the 18th pick, or just Butler for Miller & 18th Pick.
T'Wolves press is assuming that the Wiz are worried about contracts and salaries, but as Abe Polin says he will do what it takes, including going over the luxury tax, to win a championship. Ernie Grunfeld also seems pretty committed to the big 3, especially Butler.
Miller and Butler can't really be compared, Butler coming off leading the Wiz and Miller coming off a bad year...How about the Wizards get Al Jefferson and the T'Wolves get Andray Blatche? Let's go with that trade instead!
