Butler aggressively re-joins Wolves; Heat ready to talk trade

"You can't win without me", Butler reportedly screamed at Layden.

Butler's preferred trade destination is the Miami Heat, but talks between the two sides have broken down.

There has been hope among the Minnesota front office, coaching staff and some teammates that Butler would rejoin the team, but it remained to be seen what, if anything, Butler would do on the court with the Wolves on Wednesday.

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.

It could be a negotiating ploy by Minnesota to say they plan to enter the season with Butler, but with teams feeling they can't get a deal done with Minnesota until the price comes down, Butler back in a Timberwolves uniform may be the reality starting next week.

Google Pixel 2 featured a non-removable 2700mAh battery , which was satisfactory and gets through a day quite easily. Though the upcoming Pixel 3 devices have leaked before their official launch.

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

It was Butler's first practice with the team since requesting a trade three weeks ago.

So where do we stand in the Jimmy Butler trade saga seven days from opening night? Coaches and players were largely speechless at Butler's tour de force throughout the workout, league sources said. "Butler has told Minnesota that he'll leave in free agency in July - and wants a trade now". That deal fell apart, but the trade talks may be restarting soon, according to ESPN.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the details of the wild scene at T-Wolves practice.

Butler was vociferous and intense throughout scrimmage sessions, targeting president of basketball operations and coach Tom Thibodeau, general manager Scott Layden and teammates, including Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, league sources said.
