  • Jimmy Butler would fit best as rental for team trying to win this year

For that reason, he's glad he's not in teammate Jimmy Butler's position.

Butler shocked the National Basketball Association last week when he requested that the Timberwolves - who just a year earlier landed the superstar in a draft-night deal with the Chicago Bulls - trade him once again.

So far, there has been no team close to willing to meet Thibodeau's massive return for a Butler deal.

The Rockets are making a "strong push" to acquire the the Minnesota Timberwolves swingman in a trade, Mark Berman of Houston television station KRIV reported Friday via Twitter, citing sources.

It's unclear what, exactly, the Rockets would offer for Butler.

Minnesota would surely receive a first-round pick, too, but it would be late in the round and not all that attractive.

The Wolves are seeking a combination of veterans, top prospects, future assets and cap relief. When he initially asked for a trade, Butler listed the Nets, Clippers and New York Knicks as his preferred destinations, according to Wojnarowski.

Several other teams are rumoured to be interested in Butler as well, but now another team is reportedly interested that could become the new frontrunner.

STORM ALERT | Severe weather risk now lower for St. Louis Tuesday
Cool air fills in behind this storm system with highs in the mid 50s to lower 60s for the extended period. It will be breezy, too, with winds of 10 to 15 miles per hour and gusts as high as 30 miles per hour .

One wild card that some folks in the media seem to suggest we should keep an eye on is the Washington Wizards. The Wolves are unlikely to get back anything close to Butler's value, especially if they are forced to deal with one of the teams that the forward has said he'll sign an extension with. Reluctant to trade Butler, but even more reluctant to coach a rebuilding team after he's gone, team president/coach Tom Thibodeau told CBS Sports' Reid Forgrave in an on-camera interview that he wasn't going to do anything to hurt the Wolves.
