Jimmy Butler has heated practice with Timberwolves

No, we are not joking.

Butler has told Minnesota that he'll leave in free agency in July - and wants a trade now.

Richardson amassed 12.9 points, 2.9 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game previous year, and his contract is extremely team-friendly. Butler turned down a four-year, $110 million contract from the Timberwolves in the offseason. A potential trade with Miami stalled late last week.

It is unclear if Butler made his full-time return to the Timberwolves season or just proved a point of some kind in the practice.

Jimmy Butler just returned. However, let's play with the idea that Thibs won this battle between Butler and Minnesota.

Thibodeau and the Wolves players have downplayed any potential distraction caused in training camp by the team's ongoing ordeal with Butler.

So that sounds positive ... but how could this go wrong? He reportedly met with Butler and attempted to convince him to stay with the Timberwolves, but Butler wouldn't budge and reiterated his desire to be dealt by the season opener.

Wojnarowski reported that during practice Butler verbally challenged teammates, coaches and the Wolves' front office, specifically targeting Tom Thibodeau, Scott Layden, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

Wednesday's episode only added to an already embarrassing ordeal that has dragged on because of Thibodeau's unwillingness to move Butler, which has made an uneasy situation more hard. "Story soon on ESPN".

Wojnarowski reports that Butler at one point screamed at Layden, telling him, "You [expletive] need me".

According to an ESPN report, Butler practiced with the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
