These Jimmy Butler rumors aren't going away anytime soon.
The star, rumored to be disgruntled with his situation in Minnesota, has reportedly turned down a 4-year, $110 million contract extension with the Timberwolves, according to Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News. Butler can become a free agent next season and the Knicks are expected to pursue his signature.
Butler was an All-Star last year, his first season with the Timberwolves. He averaged 22.2 points, 4.9 assists and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 47.4 percent from the field and 35 percent from three.
Butler fueled the fire earlier this week by liking an Instagram comment calling for him and Kyrie Irving, who can also become a free agent next season, to join the Knicks. But he also liked an Instagram post earlier this week of him in a Spurs jersey.
