While the USA has yet to move forward with the additional $267 billion in tariffs does not mean it won't, stay tuned. In response, both the U.S. and China threatened to further increase tariffs on each other's key exports.

But the list of organizations interested in talking further with Minnesota is significant, league sources said: Brooklyn, Detroit, Houston, the LA Clippers, Miami, Philadelphia, Portland and Sacramento are among the teams interested in probing for deals. Minnesota owner Glen Taylor "prefers to find a deal by early this week", Wojnarowski added.

The Heat would be a good fit for Butler, who's entering the final year of his contract.

But it's likely Minnesota would want a hefty package in return for Butler, so Miami may have to part with Justise Winslow and/or multiple draft picks to get a deal done. He has made the All-NBA Third Team twice and the All-Defensive Second Team four times.
