Where do things stand with Jimmy Butler's trade request?

Jimmy Butler’s epic T-wolves return ‘F–king need

Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor declined to accept a trade offer from the Miami Heat for small forward Jimmy Butler that was centered on guard Josh Richardson and a protected first-round pick, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.

Wojnarowski reports that Butler at one point screamed at Layden, telling him, "You [expletive] 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.

It was Butler's first appearance at training camp since the 29-year-old Houston native asked for a trade last month.

The insane thing about the Butler situation is that he may end up suiting up for the Wolves in their season opener, despite the fact that he hasn't been with the team at all for weeks.

The Prime Minister said: "I would hope that everybody across this whole House will put the national interest first". But Mr Barnier's comments suggest there is still a long way to go before the crucial issues are settled.

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.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the details of the wild scene at T-Wolves practice. Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor took a different stance and told owners owners at the National Basketball Association board of governors meetings that "Butler is available, and prospective suitors should contact Taylor himself", according to Wojnarowski.

Anthony Tolliver, who's been on nine teams in 10 seasons, said that he's never witnessed anything quite like the Butler situation during his time in the league, but he insisted that it's not a distraction for him. I think that we have guys here that if he's not here, we can play with.

The Timberwolves reportedly were close to making a trade with the Miami Heat during recent talks, but the deal fell apart. Minnesota and Miami advanced to the brink of a blockbuster trade for Butler over the weekend - only for the deal to fracture before completion, sources told ESPN.

Outside of the Heat, the Timberwolves have had no serious, active talks ongoing with any other team recently, league sources said.
