The Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves have been trying to strike a deal centered around Jimmy Butler for weeks, following the All-Star guards demand to be traded. "We always had practices like that in Chicago".

"If we would have thought it was serious, we would have, but we didn't think it was that serious", Gibson said.

On Friday, Riley issued a statement regarding the rumored interaction with Thibodeau, denying that any kind of profanity was used during trade discussions. IN instead sought out the best possible deal and traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder, where he played one year and is set to play for the foreseeable future. "It's not uncommon when players scrimmage that there will be some talk". Butler reportedly had told Thibodeau in a meeting the day before that he would practice but made it clear what his approach would be. "I never asked for a trade because I never wanted to be traded".

Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters after a morning shootaround that Butler remained in Minneapolis to "work on his conditioning".

The famed franchise player spoke with The Athletic about the verbal taunts that Butler made upon his return to Timberwolves' practice Wednesday. Whether we like Eric Gordon or not, unless the team decides to keep a frustrated $20 million dollar man on board a sinking ship. Everything is really public now, as Garnett states, so the only possible scenario we can envision happening here is that Jimmy Butler gets traded before the season starts in four days. The Timberwolves reached the playoffs last season and lost to Houston in the first round. "The biggest job of a leader, in my eyes, is to unite and inspire".

Wiggins was not with the team Friday because his girlfriend is expecting a baby.
