Thunder Ends Game with Six Available Players

After (Perry) Jones limped off, the Thunder was left with seven.

He did not return.

Less than a minute later, Thunder guard Reggie Jackson hit the floor hard and came up clutching his right wrist, the same wrist that forced him to miss the final five preseason games. He favored his wrist for the remainder of the game, keeping it close to his midsection, holding it with his left hand and flexing it at various times.

Sebastian Telfair was called for a flagrant 2 foul when he hit Raptors forward Tyler Hansbrough in the face. The contact looked incidental, but the call carries an automatic ejection.

Center Kendrick Perkins became the lone reserve left.

Sources: Jimmy Butler Prefers Trade to Clippers, Interested in Knicks, Nets

After registering a trade request with the Minnesota Timberwolves, All-Star Jimmy Butler is most interested in pursuing a future with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told ESPN.

Butler’s ability to partner on the Clippers with a second star player in a deep summer free agency market holds a strong appeal to Butler, league sources said.

The Clippers have two max contract slots available in July, and are emerging as a front-runner for Toronto’s All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard when he becomes a free agent in July, league sources said.

Butler told Minnesota president of basketball operations and coach Tom Thibodeau that he would like to be traded before reporting for Timberwolves media day on Monday and prefers the possibility of the Clippers — as well as the New York Knicks, league sources said. Butler told the Timberwolves that he planned to leave the franchise in free agency next summer, sources said.

The Brooklyn Nets’ ability to sign two max free agents in the summer will keep them in consideration for Butler, but he has prioritized the Clippers and Knicks over them, league sources said.
