Heat-Butler talks sizzled, fizzled, with Richardson reportedly in play

Jimmy Butler is still on the Minnesota Timberwolves despite the fact that he'd really like to spend the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season elsewhere.

Minnesota even shared Butler's medical information with Miami late in the week, per Wojnarowski, and seemed poised to finally move the disgruntled swingman, who is entering the final year of his contract and requested a trade a few weeks ago.

Any trade at this point looks like the best angle for Minnesota, considering Butler's stance on the preseason and the belief that owner Glen Taylor's stance hasn't changed: Butler must be traded.

That's because one report indicates that the Timberwolves are now not in discussions with any other National Basketball Association teams. Will the president and head coach that brought Butler to Minnesota - Tom Thibodeau - be able to get a deal done?

Miami has several compelling young players and the ability to make a compelling offer - relatively speaking, anyway.

Woj reports that the trade talks "advanced to the brink" of a blockbuster this weekend.

Wojnarowski also reported that the Timberwolves are kind of relying on the Heat to be a trade partner right now, because the rest of the market for Butler has dried up. The Heat, who had been willing to include guard Josh Richardson in a return package for Butler, apparently balked at the new proposal, causing talks to fall apart.

"Minnesota and Miami had been discussing deals that included a third team to take on salary, as well as doing a direct trade between only the Timberwolves and Heat, league sources said".
