Jimmy Butler expected to play in Timberwolves opener

Reports claimed that Butler left teammates and coaches speechless after dropping a huge statement in the scrimmage. "But do I think so? No". "You can't win without me". "It was always a good competition, and at the end of the practice everybody shook up and we still understood we were teammates". That's you guys. I'm not answering to all the rumors and stuff that gets put out. "I would say s-- at [Kevin] McHale".

The Heat is not pushing to resume discussions with the Timberwolves on a Butler trade, as the Miami Herald reported Thursday.

According to a report from ESPN, the Miami Heat were very close to landing the disgruntled four-time All-Star in a blockbuster trade over the weekend - but an additional request from the Timberwolves caused the deal to fall through.

Coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters Butler was not in condition to travel to face the Milwaukee Bucks in preseason, although he added on the looming start of the regular season: "The situation remains fluid".

The Butler drama has even caught the eye of Kevin Garnett, who was quoted saying, "It's a s- storm up there". "Every team is going to through something at some point of the season". Butler then spoke at length with ESPN's Rachel Nichols, discussing his contentious relationship with the team and coaches. Riley is likely not thrilled about giving up Richardson, his second-round gem who is on a cost-controlled contract, but a player of Jimmy Butler's caliber would propel the Heat back into the mix to compete for a conference championship. I'm on Jimmy's side. "It's not coming from a place where he's going against an organization".

"Jimmy's a guy, his whole career, he made it into the league off work, off him having to grind and scratch and claw to get to where he's at", George said.

"Those other two guys - Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins - they are ridiculously talented".

While George didn't ask for a trade out of Indianapolis, he did make the Pacers' front office well aware that he wouldn't be returning as a free agent, so the team was motivated to make a deal.
