Rockets offered 4 first-round picks for Butler

Just how staggering was the offer? Butler and owner Glen Taylor have stated he is committed to Minnesota while he is still there, but Taylor has told Butler he will be traded when there is a good enough offer, according to Wojnarowski.

Wow, four future first-round draft picks is insane, a lot like the trade that crumbled the Brooklyn Nets when they acquired Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. A package of 4 first round draft picks is the very most that can be offered with respect to the current CBA, and the Rockets would likely add Marquese Chriss and Brandon Knight to the existing package in order to balance the books. So if the Rockets' pick were to somehow end up in the lottery and their pick fell inside the protected area, there would be few possibilities for the Timberwolves to recoup value for that pick.

Maurizio Sarri urges Ruben Loftus-Cheek to improve despite hat-trick
Not since Clive Walker in 1982 has a Chelsea academy product scored three goals in a game for the club. Chelsea travel to Burnley on Sunday afternoon, with the Blues returning to Premier League action.

A Heat team spokesperson confirmed to Ira Winderman of the Miami Sun-Sentinel last week that Heat president Pat Riley told the club's players prior to the start of the season that he is "pulling the plug" on trade negotiations involving Butler. He has started publicly his desire to be traded several times.

Despite having a standing trade request, Butler has been putting up his usual strong numbers for the Wolves - 24.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and a league-leading 3.8 steals per game. But considering how close James Harden and Co. came to reaching the Finals last season, Houston seems to be of the belief that Butler could get it over the hump. They did bring in Carmelo Anthony, but Butler would obviously a massive improvement over any of those players.
