Jimmy Butler traded to Timberwolves in first blockbuster deal of draft night

Jimmy Butler has been traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to sources.

The news broke early on during the 2017 NBA Draft.

The Timberwolves reportedly send Zach Lavine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall pick in this year’s draft for Jimmy Butler and the No. 16 pick.

This is BIG. NEWS. Jimmy Butler will almost certainly help the Timberwolves overcome their drought of successful seasons as he joins a youthful team with tons of potential.

The dinner was served in a spacious Ballroom at a…
