Jimmy Butler fed up with Karl-Anthony Towns, won’t sign extension
According to Joe Cowley, a talented scribe with the Chicago Sun-Times, Butler is “all but fed up with the nonchalant attitude of his younger teammates,” specifically center Karl-Anthony Towns.
According to the story, this all also somehow involved Kyrie Irving:
A league source close to the situation told the Sun-Times on Tuesday that Kyrie Irving and former Bulls All-Star Jimmy Butler are still trying to figure out a way to play together. Whether that means the Celtics try and acquire Butler this summer or the two simply wait a year, both opt out of their player options after the season, and join forces that way.
This could obviously mean the Boston Celtics are in the mix, but that is a bit of conjecture on my — without a source — end.
There will certainly be more reports to follow this initial bombshell, as well as probable denials coming from Jimmy Butler’s camp.
All of that being said, this story is still developing and fluid. We will keep you posted at ClutchPoints as more information comes to the surface.
