NBA rumors: Lakers less appealing to Jimmy Butler because of LeBron James

Jimmy Butler is currently a member of the Timberwolves.

But that may not be the case for much longer.

League sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania and Jon Krawczynski that Butler requested a trade from Minnesota.

Sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that Butler would prefer to be shipped to the Knicks, Nets or Clippers.

What about the Lakers?

Well, as Wojnarowski wrote on Wednesday afternoon:

Butler had once imagined playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, but LeBron James' arrival as the franchise's cornerstone made it less appealing for Butler in the prime of his career, league sources said.

Kyrie Irving demanded a trade from Cleveland, Paul George stayed in OKC, there have been rumblings that Kawhi Leonard may prefer the Clippers over the Lakers and now this.

What does this say, if anything, about LeBron James? It's all certainly....... interesting.

Steve Kerr concerned by lack of turnover on Warriors coaching staff

Steve Kerr concerned by lack of turnover on Warriors coaching staff

Let's take a look at the Warriors' assistant coaches since Steve Kerr arrived prior to the 2014-15 season:

2014-15 -- Alvin Gentry, Luke Walton, Ron Adams
2015-16 -- Luke Walton, Jarron Collins, Ron Adams
2016-17 -- Mike Brown, Jarron Rollins, Ron Adams
2017-18 -- Mike Brown, Jarron Collins, Ron Adams
2018-19 -- Mike Brown, Jarron Collins, Ron Adams

As you can see, there hasn't been a single change in three seasons.

Additionally, player development coaches Bruce Fraser, Chris DeMarco and Willie Green have been on staff for several years.

Why does this matter?

California Sunday Magazine recently published a conversation between Kerr and legendary head coach Phil Jackson, and check out this one notable exchange between the two:

Jackson: "Have you made any additions to your coaching staff, Steve?"

Kerr: "No. We haven’t had much turnover at all the last couple of years, so that’s a concern as well. I think we could actually use a little bit of a change in that regard, but you can’t always dictate that."

While NBA teams want consistency, sometimes a fresh voice can help. Change in the coaching ranks also means talented people are being promoted, even if that means going elsewhere.
