Jimmy Butler Returns To Practice, Verbally Challenges Coaches, Teammates

Jimmy Butler Returns To Practice, Verbally Challenges Coaches, Teammates

The Timberwolves open the regular season October 17 at San Antonio.

Minnesota's star swingman, who has been at odds with the organization for almost a month, requested a trade from the Timberwolves on September 19.

Are we to expect that the Wolves will just trade him anyways? Here's a comprehensive timeline of the Butler trade rumors since his initial request. He had not practiced with the team so far this season after requesting a trade three weeks ago.

The Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets also haven't given up on the idea of landing Butler in a trade, according to multiple sources and reports.

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. 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.

Butler naturally wasn't in the best of shape, but he held his own, league sources said. "It's just a matter or when".

Minnesota and Miami advanced to the brink of a blockbuster trade for Butler over the weekend - only for the deal to fracture before completion, sources said.

With that in mind, the Heat appear to still be in pursuit. The Rockets and Suns were ready to dip their toe into the Butler market. Butler was vociferous and emotional at times, targeting Thibodeau/Layden/Towns/Wiggins.

Miami had softened on including guard Josh Richardson in versions of a possible deal for Butler, only to recoil once Minnesota pushed late for a sweeter return on the four-time All-Star, league sources said.

The Heat have been the main protagonists in trade talks with the Timberwolves, especially in the past week. According to Krawczyinski, Minnesota is "making preparations to start the season with Butler on the roster".

Outside of the Heat, the Timberwolves have had no serious, active talks with any other team, league sources said.

"I think that I was honest", Butler said.
