Symbolically, it hands Towns the keys to the franchise as the Timberwolves prepare to deal Butler.
Butler, a four-time All-Star, two-time All-NBA selection and four-time All-Defensive selection would immediately make the Miami Heat better on both sides of the floor, but especially on offence after they finished 20th in the league last season in that category.
As for the other players who are reportedly available, dealing them would certainly be a big hit to the Heat's current rotation, but most would consider it well worth it in exchange for bringing a player of Butler's caliber to Miami.

"So when I look at what was the impact [of having Butler], it was huge", Thibodeau said, adding that he always knew there was risk involved in trading for Butler given his contract situation.
But Towns merely chalked that up to "very awkward", coincidental timing, saying that Butler's decision - or the choice to trade him - had nothing to do with Towns signing his extension. However, with no assurances Butler would return next summer, the Cavs would likely also ask for a first-round draft pick as well.
