Jimmy Butler of Minnesota Timberwolves meets with players after heated practice appearance

Jeff Teague

The Timberwolves begin their regular-season schedule next Wednesday against the Spurs in San Antonio.

Jimmy Butler #23 of the Minnesota Timberwolves talks to the media following Game Three of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs against the Houston Rockets on April 21, 2018 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. "Whenever opening night happens, we'll go out there and play with who we've got". Here's a comprehensive timeline of the Butler trade rumors since his initial request. The Marquette product also reportedly would consider signing a contract extension if dealt to the Nets or Knicks.

It's not clear what Butler's outburst means for Minnesota. Since the Timberwolves seemingly lose leverage by the day, the Lakers may be able to acquire Butler while still holding onto one of Lonzo Ball or Brandon Ingram, but would he allow them to grow into the players they could be given patience? "It's just a matter or when".

It's time to move on from Jimmy Butler and it's time for him to move on as well.

Q: Jimmy Butler doesn't make the Heat a contender in the East, let alone in the entire league. The Rockets and Suns were ready to dip their toe into the Butler market.

During an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols, Butler told his side of the story, saying Towns wanted no part of him.

Kim, Pompeo agree to 2nd US-North Korea summit ´at earliest date´
South Korean foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha has given a hint of what a grand bargain between the two countries could look like. Pompeo and Kim held a two-hour meeting followed by a 90-minute luncheon hosted by Kim.

The first reports of serious negotiations arose in the first week of October.

"He was around", Timberwolves veteran Anthony Tolliver cautiously told reporters. But if Thibodeau made a decision to ignore Butler's request, that means he was negligent and, thus, cost the Wolves the ability to make a trade that might have been palatable. The Miami Heat and Timberwolves talked about a potential trade but recent talks fell apart. Imagine if they even neared Butler's fire.

Once again, Jimmy Butler is selfish and an actor, it's that simple. However, questions remain over whether a deal will come to fruition before the season begins.

According to Woj, Butler took the Wolves' bench guys and not only challenged, but beat the starting unit.

The New York Times reported Minnesota rejected a Heat offer for Butler that was headlined by Josh Richardson and a No. 1 draft pick, along with another player. As the GM watched on the sidelines during a scrimmage, sources said that Butler yelled to Layden: "You [expletive] need me, Scott".

"Have you ever known me to hide anything?" he asked Nichols.
