Which team is the best fit for Jimmy Butler: Nets or Knicks?

Jimmy Butler has reportedly requested a trade out of Minnesota and two teams on his preferred list are just a borough away from each other. The Brooklyn Nets offer a team that has been rebuilding the last couple of years but have good, young pieces to complement Butler. The New York Knicks have the mystique of Madison Garden and the possibility of getting Kyrie Irving next year to pair up with Butler. Which team is a better fit? 🏀

The Nets, Knicks, and Clippers are on Jimmy Butler's preferred list of trade destinations. He is also reportedly saying those are the specific teams he will sign an extension with at the end of the season. Where would be the better fit?

The Nets have been suffering for a while, but it isn't without purpose. Brooklyn picked up some great assets in the draft and the front office is building a young, exciting team that is one star away from contending for a playoff spot. With Butler has the main star, the Nets would get out from the basement and contend in a LeBron James-less Eastern Conference. 

Brooklyn is the best place to go.

The Nets can offer Butler a nice package, but does that pitch include one of the most iconic stadiums in the world? Whenever someone thinks of New York, they're not thinking of the Barclays Center—it's always Madison Square Garden. Jimmy Butler can add to the legendary memories that have happened in the Garden. 

Plus, the Knicks still have the reputation to get big name free agents to complement him, like Kyrie Irving. There is no reason to go to Brooklyn when New York is available.
