The Wolves are seeking a combination of veterans, top prospects, future assets and cap relief.

On Tuesday, Thibodeau said Minnesota plans to "honor his request" and is now "seeing what is out there". The Timberwolves would fulfill Butler's wish and relieve the negative tension that has been plaguing them throughout the process.
