News of Jimmy Butler getting heated with teammates, coaches and even GM Scott Layden at a Timberwolves practice went viral Wednesday, Butler later telling ESPN's Rachel Nichols things in Minnesota are still "not fixed."

If that is indeed the case, The Junkies wondered Thursday, should the Wizards make a push to bring him to D.C.? 

JP: Would you give up Otto and a first-round pick for Jimmy Butler?

EB: Oh yeah. I would probably give up any of our guys.

Bish: Well, you'd have to get him signed.

JP: Sure.

EB: I'd probably give up any of our guys. 

"I love the guy. I'd love to have that dude on our team," EB also said after seeing Butler's interview . "I just bought his passion for basketball. I bought what he was selling." 

Butler is a four-time All-Star who would immediately upgrade the Wizards' starting five. But the questions remain: how much would you have to give up to get him, and can you convince him to stay in Washington long-term?
