practice for the first time since demanding a trade last month, forced his way into a few scrimmages, taunted teammates Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins over their alleged lack of desire and then reportedly took aim at Timberwolves General Manager Scott Layden, telling him "you [expletive] need me, Scott". A deal that would've shipped him to the Heat almost came to fruition over the weekend, but those talks fell apart despite the Heat's efforts to build a package around young players and draft picks.

This saga started in mid-September, when it became known that Butler told Thibodeau that he wanted a trade. He said he was "brutally honest", which he doesn't consider to be a bad thing.

In an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols after the practice, Butler told her about how he felt during practice.


"He's got 1 year left on his contract and I know Jimmy, that if they don't end up doing the right deal for him [to trade him away], he's gonna play hard and he's gonna stay this year". For what it's worth, Teague said the Wolves "played hard" at Wednesday's practice.

Minnesota had shared Butler's medical information with Miami late last week, sources said, a typical last step before finalizing a trade.

"It could be, it could be", Butler said.


We can not let Jimmy Butler talk fans and young basketball players into thinking that being "overly emotional" is a true quality of a leader, it's not being able to control your emotions that makes you immature and someone who can not lead others.

According to numerous sources, the All-Star guard was reportedly tearing into teammates, coaches and even management at practice Wednesday. "I went up in practice and he said, 'Anybody can get this work.' I said, 'Do it to me.' That's all that I said". Whether he's here or not, we'll just focus on who is here. I'm just focused on myself, focused on the guys who are here. "I'm going to do my job", Butler said.

"I love Jimmy, man", Teague said Wednesday.
