Jimmy Butler gives out cell phone number at Timberwolves introductory news conference

Jimmy Butler gives out cell phone number at Timberwolves introductory news conference

Previous year the Bulls signed Chicago native and three-time National Basketball Association champion Dwayne Wade away from Miami.

"The Wolves surrendered their presumed point guard of the future - Kris Dunn - in the trade with Chicago to acquire Butler, but sources say they remain in search of a veteran at the position even though Rubio, 26, averaged 16.0 points and 10.5 assists per game after the All-Star break", he continued.

The news hit me like a Kevin Love chest pass to the gut.

Both Thibodeau and Butler deflcted questions about any problems that either of them had while in Chicago. This is a great fit for us, and it's a great fit for Jimmy as well.

The 'Wolves have a number of free agents, but they'll probably let majority walk because they'd rather get one good player in free agency. "I" m going in with full confidence and, you know, I'm just extremely excited to get this ball rolling and see what we can do", said LaVine. So right now we're operating under the assumption that he'll be here.

"We should be great", Towns said. "He's a great person, he's a great leader and we're thrilled to have him".

Chuck Todd: White House running a 'war on the truth'
It's a trend that has many reporters ruffled, and on Monday, CNN's Jim Acosta and other reporters called him out on it. ET with Energy Secretary Rick Perry. "This is the White House's way of showing the press corps who is in charge".

Maybe all three of the assets the Bulls got back for Butler turn into stars.

Jimmy Butler met the Twin Cities media, and cheering onlookers, during a press conference at the Mall of America on Thursday morning. "We've defined our direction and will make decisions based on our direction from this day forward".

"The way that people rave about his work ethic, about his daily approach, about the time he spends in the gym, about how he has attacked this injury on a daily basis to get himself back on the court as soon as possible, it's unbelievable", the Bulls coach said.

"My rookie season, there were a lot of ups and downs, basically like a roller coaster ride", Dunn said.

Also rumored is Kyle Lowry in free agency. Thibodeau is confident that Butler's arrival along with the potential of the Timberwolves' young stars can make Minnesota an attractive destination for free agents, which has traditionally not been the case. "So when you look at the relationships he has in the league - the fact that he's played All-Star, the fact that he's been an Olympian - those guys get to know each other and there's friendships". When Derrick Rose got injured, we had no choice (but to play Butler more).
