Jimmy Butler Erupted With Mean-Spirited Trash Talk At Timberwolves Practice

Jimmy Butler Erupted With Mean-Spirited Trash Talk At Timberwolves Practice

There has been hope among the Minnesota front office, coaching staff and some teammates that Butler would rejoin the team, but it remained to be seen what, if anything, Butler would do on the court with the Wolves on Wednesday.

In what may be a good sign for the Wolves, though, Wojnarowski reported via Twitter that Butler practiced with the team today.

The Timberwolves reportedly were close to making a trade with the Miami Heat during recent talks, but the deal fell apart.

According to ESPN's Amin Elhassan, Butler even led the third-stringers to a victory against the starters during a scrimmage. Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor took a different stance and told owners owners at the National Basketball Association board of governors meetings that "Butler is available, and prospective suitors should contact Taylor himself", according to Wojnarowski. Thibodeau has started reaching out to players on the team to prepare them for the prospects of a deal taking place during the season, not before, sources said. He's in the first season of a four-year, $42 million contract.

Tropical storm Michael strengthens into a hurricane, menaces Florida
The storm was centred about 30 miles (48km) off the western tip of Cuba , and about 520 miles (837km) south of Apalachicola. This will place a low, but present threat for flash flooding , strong to damaging wind gusts, and isolated tornadoes.

Butler was vociferous and emotional at times, targeting president/coach Tom Thibodeau, general manager Scott Layden and teammates Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, league sources said. Minnesota moved to amend the framework of the trade and talks collapsed on Saturday, league sources said. "You can't win without me". ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Butler was "determined to find a way to the Los Angeles Clippers" and was looking to pair with a second All-Star in the 2019 free agency class.

You could speculate that the Houston news came out because it was MEANT to come out.

If another Miami deal does surface on Thibs table, could the offer be more than Josh Richardson and a draft pick?

Time will tell in Minnesota.
