Timberwolves players growing exhausted of Jimmy Butler rumors during training camp

Timberwolves players growing exhausted of Jimmy Butler rumors during training camp

As the Miami Heat continue to push for a trade that would bring Jimmy Butler to Miami, Butler returned to Timberwolves practice on Wednesday. The bad news is he reportedly was acting out.

"At one point during the scrimmage, Butler turned to GM Scott Layden and screamed, 'You (bleeping) need me". Coaches and players were largely speechless at Butler's tour de force throughout the workout, league sources said.

Butler showed up for his first practice of the preseason on Wednesday, and he didn't exactly opt to blend in with his Timberwolves' teammates.

Butler participated in multiple intrasquad scrimmages, where he joined the bench units against the starters and went out of his way to challenge the team's two young stars, Towns and Wiggins, league sources said. He dominated the gym in every way. Some in league circles have strongly suggested the drama between Butler and Towns was real and centered on a woman.

It would be in the Timberwolves' best interest to trade Butler if they can't convince him to return.

What Atiku Said About Obasanjo After Winning PDP Presidential Primary

With that in mind, the Heat appear to still be in pursuit.

A report emerged on Tuesday that the day before, he met with Tom Thibodeau for a third time to make it clear his desire to be traded. 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. 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.

Three days after the initial trade negotiations fell apart, Miami has not given up in its pursuit of Butler, according to Wojnarowski.

Butler has been in contact with a few teammates over the past few weeks, including point guard Jeff Teague.
