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

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.

The four-time All-Star and elite National Basketball Association defensive player has been linked to the Miami Heat for the last few weeks, but reports suggest that a deal that was in place fell apart.

The Heat have been aggressive in pursuing Butler and Miami is one of Butler's preferred destinations in a trade, but despite progress on talks this week, the teams couldn't get to the finish line.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor and Heat owner Mickey Arinson reportedly had become involved in the discussions and all indications were a trade was going to be reported to the league office.

"Miami had softened on including guard Josh Richardson in versions of a possible deal for Butler, only to recoil once Minnesota pushed late for a sweeter return on the four-time All-Star forward, league sources said".

Talks could pick up again in the future. Thanks to Butler making his intentions to leave Minnesota known, the Wolves have lost some leverage - everybody knows they need to make a deal pretty soon.

Kavanaugh confirmation likely with support from Collins, Flake & Manchin
While Democrats' defeat was all but certain, the Senate remained in session overnight, though the chamber was mostly empty. Manchin, a red-state Democrat, earlier also voted yes to advance Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to a vote in the full Senate.


Butler has been linked with several teams. Miami would acquire Butler's Bird Rights in a trade and could exceed the salary cap to re-sign him. He also said that there are no other serious trade talks at this point for Butler.

Butler has yet to report to the Timberwolves since his trade demand, but has been working out at the team's facilities, with the team listing him as rehabilitating from July wrist surgery.
