Admit it, Jimmy Butler: You Tried, But You Failed

Butler has demanded a trade but returned to practice with the team Wednesday, a session that included him verbally challenging teammates and coaches. "But if you find out, let me know".

While coach Tom Thibodeau has downplayed the absence of Butler, who stayed behind for conditioning work in Minneapolis for the trip, the team (1-4 in preseason) has floundered in his absence this month. You can get the f-- up out of here.

The Miami Heat really want to make a trade for Minnesota Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler, and from the sounds of things, Butler really would like to play for the Heat.

When asked on Friday if Butler will be with the team on opening night of the regular season, Thibodeau called the situation "fluid," reports Fox Sports' Dave Benz.

"I never requested a trade because I viewed 'Sota as mine", Garnett said.

In practice Wednesday, Butler reportedly directed his frustration at Wolves General Manager Scott Layden, delivering an expletive-laced message about how the team can't win without him.

"We always had practices like that in Chicago", Gibson added. "It's not good at all", said Wolves center Karl-Anthony Towns, who finished 2-of-9 shooting for eight points. "We're always going to put the team first".

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Butler challenged teammates and management when he rejoined the team for a workout Wednesday. However, point guard Jeff Teague went on Twitter to call that report "fake news", saying there was no such meeting.

What's getting overlooked, George said, is that in pushing to get moved now, Butler is trying to allow the Timberwolves to get something back for him rather than seeing him leave as a free agent after the season and not have anything to show for it.

Asked if he was pleased with the practice, Thibodeau said: "You're never pleased with practice".
