Butler Returns to Wolves Practice, Screams at General Manager

Butler Returns to Wolves Practice, Screams at General Manager

Owner Glen Taylor has pushing president of basketball operations and coach Tom Thibodeau and general manager Scott Layden to find a deal sooner rather than later for Butler, league sources said.

The frenemies played Wednesday for the first time this offseason - Butler has been missing from training camp - in a session that reportedly included him teaming with the third-stringers to beat the starters and a verbal assault on Layden, the former Knicks GM. The team attempted to change Butler's mind on a trade request and get him to report to practice. All along, Butler has been clear that while he wants to be traded, he does not plan to miss regular season games, which would mean forfeiting those game checks.

Butler requested a trade three weeks ago.

Minnesota had shared Butler's medical information with Miami late last week, sources said, a typical last step before finalizing a trade.

Hazard still dreaming of joining Real Madrid
Marca say owner Roman Abramovich and Marina Granovskaia want a fee for their talented Belgian worldwide . I don't want to say: 'Yes, I am signing a new contract, ' and then I don't end up signing.

The T-Wolves' first game of the season is on Wednesday when they visit the San Antonio Spurs.

Butler's preferred trade destination is the Miami Heat, but talks between the two sides have broken down. According to ESPN's Stefano Fusaro, the Timberwolves reportedly asked for Tucker and shooting guard Eric Gordon in a trade involving the 29-year old guard.

A proposed deal between the Heat and Wolves fell apart over the weekend, but there has been hope among the Minnesota front office, coaching staff and some teammates that Butler would rejoin the team.

Apparently, a deal can't come soon enough for Butler.
