Jimmy Butler will meet with Timberwolves president and coach Tom Thibodeau and GM Scott Layden on Monday to “have honest conversations” about the All-Star’s future with the team as he seriously contemplates his situation, league sources told The Athletic.

With the opening of training camp 10 days away, it appears the Wolves and Butler have reached a fork in the road, with months of tension and uncertainty involving Butler, Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins and Thibodeau possibly coming to a head, sources told Shams Charania and me. Butler can become an unrestricted free agent next summer and has long said that playing for a team that can contend for championships is his highest priority at this stage of his career.
