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

Associated Press

The insane thing about the Butler situation is that he may end up suiting up for the Wolves in their season opener, despite the fact that he hasn't been with the team at all for weeks. The bad news is he reportedly was acting out.

Butler has demanded a trade but Thibodeau has reportedly continued to beg him to stay and a near deal with Miami over the weekend fell apart when the Wolves asked for more.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Butler reported to practice on Wednesday and challenged everyone - the front office, the coaches, the players.

The Minnesota Timberwolves'Jimmy Butler and Miami Heat roller-coaster has not been a fun one, leaving most of our writers sick at this point (mostly me). "He dominated the gym in every way".

Butler requested a trade before the start of training camp but the Wolves have been unable to find a trade to their satisfaction.

Ronaldo "is accustomed to being the subject of press attention that goes along with being famous", Christiansen said. Unfortunately, he now finds himself embroiled in the type of litigation that is all too commonplace in America .

Butler is believed to have experienced some issues with Wiggins and especially Towns last season.

Either way, Butler had previously refused Thibodeau's request to re-join the team, according to multiple reports from The Athletic. The Heat and president Pat Riley were "as aggressive as any team in pursuit of a Jimmy Butler trade", per Wojnarowski.

"Outside of the Heat, the Timberwolves have had no serious, active talks with any other team", ESPN reported in a separate story. The Heat reportedly pushed the Timberwoles to "accept a revised offer" for Butler with a deal potentially centered around center Bam Adebayo, guard Josh Richardson and a first-round pick. Butler, meanwhile, will be an unrestricted free agent next summer and Houston would need assurance that he will re-sign long term. The Rockets also engaged in Butler trade talks, but have thus far been unwilling to trade forward P.J. Tucker.

Butler doesn't seem content burning bridges with the organization.

Apparently, a deal can't come soon enough for Butler.
