Karl-Anthony Towns Dodges Questions About Jimmy Butler

Karl-Anthony Towns Dodges Questions About Jimmy Butler

Thibodeau had this to say about Butler's comments on Towns and Wiggins: "To me, like they're young guys improving, this is a team sport". If you don't want to be here, get the f-- up out of here, man. Guys know this.

Thibodeau said he's in the Twin Cities working on his conditioning.

With his trade request not yet accommodated and Butler back at practice this week, things have been tense and awkward at the Timberwolves practice facility the past few days.

Paul George, no stranger to uncomfortable situations with National Basketball Association management, said on Friday that he has spoken with Jimmy Butler about what's happening in Minnesota and is firmly on his side.

And while the Timberwolves have plenty on their plate, from figuring out how to deal with Butler's trade request to fixing the gaping holes in their defense, they don't have much time to come together to get on the same page. "He was the biggest whiner going when he was playing and I know that because I coached against him".

The Sun-Sentinel also reported the Heat, according to a source familiar with the dealings, "are not trying to re-engage" in Jimmy Butler trade talks. "We always had practices like that in Chicago". Butler verbally went after Thibodeau, general manager Scott Layden and teammates Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, whose work ethic and desire to win he has previously questioned.

Thibodeau told reporters he did expect Butler to end his holdout and show up for the practice.

Butler's orchestrated in-practice meltdown was reported by ESPN on Wednesday afternoon.

Asked if he was pleased with the practice, Thibodeau said: "You're never pleased with practice". George told the Indiana Pacers he planned on leaving the team when his free agency rolled around in the summer of 2018, with Los Angeles apparently at the top of his potential destination list.
