Butler misses Timberwolves' final preseason game as Garnett fumes

'Motherf--ker': The reason why Jimmy Butler trade talks imploded

Garnett said he can relate to the histrionics Butler is said to have exhibited in his brief return to Wolves practice. "I think Jimmy thinks his worth is a little more than what it is. You can't win without me", to GM Scott Layden.

"I'm not going to get into all that stuff. Our conversations have been nothing but cordial and I have never used that kind of language in negotiations, but I do admit to telling Danny Ainge to ...", Riley said in a statement through a team spokesman, acknowledging trade talks with Minnesota.

With the regular season getting underway next week, Butler returned to practice on Wednesday but caused a huge scene with a number of his team-mates.

Crude oil slightly higher as Hurricane Michael approaches Florida
OPEC has been under the hit list from the USA for declining the increased outcome to answer rising oil prices. The global oil demand outlook of OPEC for 2019 was lowered by 50,000 barrels a day to 1.36 mln barrels daily.


The results on the floor, without Butler and amid all the drama surrounding his status, seems to have weighed on the Timberwolves in preseason.

Where Garnett drew the line was requesting a trade, something he never did despite winning just two playoff series in 12 years with the team.

Thibodeau told reporters he did expect Butler to end his holdout and show up for the practice. They will take up a big chunk of the Wolves' salary cap going forward, and if their progress stalls, the Wolves' fortunes could as well.

Top climber Kim Chang-ho among nine killed by Himalayan blizzard
Kim Chang-ho, who climbed the 14 highest mountains in the world in the fastest time in 2013, was one of the climbers who died. The police officer said a search-and-rescue team on a helicopter was likely to collect and retrieve the bodies on Sunday.


Butler told ESPN's Rachel Nichols on Wednesday evening that the situation is "not fixed", adding, "It could be. I don't know if Jimmy has enough juice to be that".

Perhaps it is now safe to say that the guys in Minnesota are not a fan of Butler's hard-hitting ways. 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.

"Jimmy's a guy, his whole career, has made it to the league off work".
