Where do things stand with Jimmy Butler's trade request?

Where do things stand with Jimmy Butler's trade request?

During a practice session on Wednesday, the All-Star guard, who requested a trade three weeks ago, blew up at his teammates, coaches and front-office staff, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Barring a change in the dwindling trade market between now and the season opener in San Antonio on October 17, the Timberwolves are making preparations to start the season with Butler on the roster, league sources said...

The Miami Heat had made progress in trade talks with Minnesota last week and were pushing the Wolves to accept a revised trade offer for Butler, but proposed changes from Minnesota created a "breakdown" in negotiations, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.

Nobody wants this, and Woj doesn't go on to speculate on whether this could even be a possibility, so no thank you.

Butler reportedly took part in drills and also scrimmaged with the Wolves. Coaches and players were largely speechless at Butler's tour de force throughout the workout, league sources said. Minnesota moved to amend the framework of the trade and talks collapsed on Saturday, league sources said.

From the display, it can be said that Huawei's upcoming flagship keeps minimal bezels on the sides, as well as around the notch. While the standard Mate 20 is depicted with a rear fingerprint sensor, the Mate 20 Pro will feature an in-display reader.

Sources told Wojnarowski that Butler was emotional and targeted head coach Tom Thibodeau and general manager Scott Layden, as well as teammates Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns. These probably aren't the actions teams that have interest in him, either via trade or when he's a free agent next summer, want to see.

While this reads as a lot of information you may already know about, it comes at an interesting time from Woj.

The Miami Heat are pressing the Minnesota Timberwolves to keep talking and eventually finalize a trade centered on Jimmy Butler, according to a report from ESPN.

That's at least, what an intelligent and well-thought out franchise would do.
