Jimmy Butler verbally challenged team at practice

Report: Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor rejected Heat’s Jimmy Butler trade offer that included Josh Richardson, protected 1st-round pick

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).

The practice comes after sources said that the Heat were still pressing for a trade to acquire Butler. However, Woj reports that Butler was verbally challenging teammates, coaches and the front office.

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

According to one source, Butler and a "team of third-stringers" beat the Wolves' starters in a scrimmage.

In what may be a good sign for the Wolves, though, Wojnarowski reported via Twitter that Butler practiced with the team today.

The report was published ahead of a first global ministerial mental health summit in London this week. It's where we spend a majority of our time, build friendships and where we make our livelihoods.

Outside of the Heat, the Timberwolves have had no serious, active talks ongoing with any other team recently, league sources said. Coaches and players were largely speechless at Butler's tour de force throughout the workout, league sources said. Could we see a blockbuster trade?

Three days after the initial trade negotiations fell apart, Miami has not given up in its pursuit of Butler, according to Wojnarowski. 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 was reportedly vociferous and emotional at times in targeting Tom Thibodeau, Scott Layden, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

The T-Wolves' first game of the season is on Wednesday when they visit the San Antonio Spurs. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Butler was "determined to find a way to the Los Angeles Clippers" and was looking to pair with a second All-Star in the 2019 free agency class.
