Jimmy Butler Ripped Apart Coaches, Front Office, and Teammates During Practice

Report: Heat interested in restarting Butler trade talks

The Miami Heat are pressing the Minnesota Timberwolves to keep talking and eventually finalize a trade centered on Jimmy Butler, according to a report from ESPN. The bad news is he reportedly was acting out.

The frenemies played Wednesday for the first time this offseason - Butler has been missing from training camp - in a session that reportedly included him teaming with the third-stringers to beat the starters and a verbal assault on Layden, the former Knicks GM.

Wojnarowski reported that during practice Butler verbally challenged teammates, coaches and the Wolves' front office, specifically targeting Tom Thibodeau, Scott Layden, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

A quote from Anthony Tolliver about Butler's presence at practice says all you need to know about the matter. "Butler left teammates and coaches largely speechless".

Nikki Haley resigns as United Nations ambassador
Before she was named by Mr Trump to her United Nations post , she was governor of SC , the first woman to hold the post . Haley discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House, Axios news site reported.

In what may be a good sign for the Wolves, though, Wojnarowski reported via Twitter that Butler practiced with the team today. He dominated the gym in every way.

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

Neither Towns nor Wiggins confronted Butler at any point, league sources said.

It would be in the Timberwolves' best interest to trade Butler if they can't convince him to return. "Butler has told Minnesota that he'll leave in free agency in July - and wants a trade now". The Heat and president Pat Riley were "as aggressive as any team in pursuit of a Jimmy Butler trade", per Wojnarowski. According to ESPN's Stefano Fusaro, the Timberwolves reportedly asked for Tucker and shooting guard Eric Gordon in a trade involving the 29-year old guard. While the Miami Heat are first on his list of landing spots, the Houston, Texas native has been part of numerous trade conversations, but no agreement has been reached.
