Jimmy Butler Returns To Practice, Verbally Challenges Coaches, Teammates

Report: Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor rejected Heat’s Jimmy Butler trade offer that included Josh Richardson, protected 1st-round pick NBA rumors: Wolves demand Eric Gordon, PJ Tucker from Rockets for Jimmy Butler

Butler was reported by many sources that he attended practice this morning, but not to play with the team, more so to meet up with his current teammates. The bad news is he reportedly was acting out.

I have heard from people around the league that Tucker is not available in the deal, Houston knows it lost a lot of defense this off-season (Trevor Ariza, Luc Mbah a Moute) and doesn't feel it can give more away, even in a Butler trade (Butler absolutely would help their wing defense).

All-Star Jimmy Butler made a dramatic return to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, boldly challenging teammates, coaches and front office executives in the session, league sources told ESPN. "He dominated the gym in every way". Yes, Butler will return, but there will be plenty of drama.

Either way, Butler had previously refused Thibodeau's request to re-join the team, according to multiple reports from The Athletic.

In addition to getting to spend some kid-free time together, William and Kate got to further push their mental health initiative. Another policy up for discussion is a declaration committing to putting mental health on an equal footing with physical health.

The Heat and Timberwolves were close on a trade that would have sent Josh Richardson, another player and other assets to Minnesota, but the deal feel apart at the last minute. That can all change with one phone call, but the Timberwolves are moving forward as if there will be no deal before the start of the season.

Tom Thibodeau and Glen Taylor may be toying with the Miami Heat and Pat Riley so they Heat can raise the ante on what they can potentially give up for Jimmy Butler. Butler, meanwhile, will be an unrestricted free agent next summer and Houston would need assurance that he will re-sign long term.

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

Butler's friend and current Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017 and it took the Cavs six weeks to pull off a deal.
