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

Associated Press

There have been a flood of rumors on Butler's National Basketball Association future since his initial trade request including contradictory reports coming from within the Minnesota front office.

Remember, Karl-Anthony Towns wouldn't sign his max contract extension until the Butler situation was resolved, and when the Butler trade request first leaked Andrew Wiggins' brother sent out a celebratory Tweet.

"At one point during the scrimmage, Butler turned to GM Scott Layden and screamed, 'You (bleeping) need me".

Minnesota was reportedly willing to trade Butler to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday, but the Rockets were unwilling to part with PJ Tucker. But with the regular season less than a week away, and Butler still on the team, he reported Wednesday to begin practicing.

Leaving it on the charger could also cause problems for the watch's long-term battery health, experts said. Every time the device boots, it tries to load the complications again, fails and restarts.

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

Except for this trade, the Timberwolves responded with an amendment to the framework of the deal, according to Wojnarowski, which caused the trade talks to "fracture".

"[Taylor] could have escaped his Butler nightmare by accepting a package from Miami that would have been headlined by the promising Heat swingman Josh Richardson and a protected first-round pick", Stein wrote in his latest mailbag column.

The Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets also haven't given up on the idea of landing Butler in a trade, according to multiple sources and reports. That said, sources say other teams feel Thibodeau doesn't have his heart in making a trade and that is the real coare problem - Thibs wants to get the band back together and win games, and owner Glen Taylor isn't coming in strong enough to force a deal to get done.
