Jimmy Butler has heated practice with Timberwolves

Jimmy Butler has heated practice with Timberwolves

Butler, an upcoming free agent in 2019, returned to the Timberwolves for practice Wednesday even though he's continued pushing the franchise to trade him elsewhere.

NBA Commish Adam Silver has obviously been following the drama between Jimmy Butler and the Minnesota Timberwolves. and tells TMZ Sports, "They gotta work it out". "But I think that's the problem, everybody is so scared to be honest with one another". I was completely honest about everything.

Butler, asked about that by Nichols, said: "A lot of it is true, but I haven't played basketball in so long and I'm so passionate and I love the game and I don't do it for any reason but to compete and go against the best".

The New York Times reported Minnesota rejected a Heat offer for Butler that was headlined by Josh Richardson and a No. 1 draft pick, along with another player.

At some point, the Jimmy Butler saga has to come to an end.

"I'm not saying that Wahlberg was the adviser for the dramatic short featuring Butler that was played out on Wednesday at Mayo Clinic Square, but it was done well enough to be a Marky Mark Production", Reusse writes. He was with his teammates in the locker room at the team's practice facility Wednesday morning, league sources said. That's raw me - me at my finest, me at my purest - that's what you're gonna get inside the lines. "All my emotion came out at one time".

Sources told Wojnarowski that Butler was emotional and targeted head coach Tom Thibodeau and general manager Scott Layden, as well as teammates Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. Butler had been away from the team while the Wolves were in California for a preseason bonding trip. A potential trade with Miami stalled late last week. Minnesota moved to amend the framework of the trade and talks collapsed on Saturday, league sources said.

Tucker and Gordon may not have the star power of four-time all-star Butler, but they both figure to be fundamental pieces in Houston's rotation this year.

With Miami seemingly in the lead to land Butler (They nearly had a deal done over the weekend before it fell apart), the Clippers will have to look elsewhere to dump players.
