"I really don't damn know", he said when asked why the club has failed to put together solid 48-minute stretches this preseason. "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".

Of course, Butler demanded a trade from the Timberwolves about three weeks ago and has stayed away from the team during training camp as the team attempted to find a trade for him.

You can look at this one of two ways; Riley is eager to re-engage the Timberwolves and, by.

Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters after a morning shootaround that Butler remained in Minneapolis to "work on his conditioning".

The regular season is upon us.

"We always had practices like that in Chicago", Gibson added.


Butler told ESPN following Wednesday's practice that his issues with the Timberwolves have not been fixed.

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. Do I think so? No". "And then he sees the potential that he has around him and he just wants guys to match that, because if guys are skilled and have that "it" like KAT (Karl-Anthony Towns) has, like Andrew Wiggins has, they have that "it" that a lot of guys don't have, now they just have to match it with what Jimmy's bringing to the table".

The saga with the four-time All-Star started in mid-September, when it became known that Butler told Thibodeau that he wanted a trade after a season in which he was Minnesota's leading scorer and helped the Wolves snap a 14-year playoff drought.

A lot of the times, with star players in the National Basketball Association, they are friends off the court and talk constantly.

"Some things that have been reported are correct, some are not", he said. He acknowledged his team would have to deal with the constant media attention over the situation and whether Butler will be traded. However, point guard Jeff Teague went on Twitter to call that report "fake news", saying there was no such meeting.

Just as trade talks between the Timberwolves and Heat broke down, Pat Riley had some parting words for Tom Thibodeau. So, I understand that you got a job to do, we have a job to do, and that's what we have to do. The finalized version of the trade involving Richardson, Waiters, and a protected first-round pick was reportedly agreed to before Thibodeau chose to get greedy.
