TheA Minnesota TimberwolvesA reportedly asked theA Houston RocketsA for shooting guardA Eric GordonA and forward PJ Tucker in a trade involving All-Star Jimmy Butler.

According to ESPN'sA Stefano Fusaro, Minnesota called Houston with the offer Tuesday, but the Rockets won't part with Tucker.

ESPN'sA Adrian WojnarowskiA reported Monday that the Timberwolves and Miami Heat were on the brink of a blockbuster deal involving Butler over the weekend. It fell apart, however.

Butler asked for a trade a few weeks ago and reportedly favored a deal to Miami because of the Heat's ability and willingness to sign him to a hefty extension.

Wojnarowski added that the Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks are among the other teams Butler has interest in joining.

Houston's ability to sign Butler to an extension is somewhat questionable given the bigA contractsA guards James Harden and Chris Paul are already playing under.

Butler could be a rental in the Rockets' case as they attempt to push past the Golden State Warriors after losing to them in last season's Western Conference Finals in seven games.
