Rockets reject Tucker and Gordon for Butler trade from Timberwolves

Associated Press

While Butler has a strong inclination to leave Minnesota, the Timberwolves seem unwilling to budge on whatever pieces they have to get in exchange for the Houston, Texas native.

Days ago, multiple news outlets reported that a trade between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Miami Heat for Jimmy Butler had fallen apart.

Timberwolves players confirmed Wednesday that Butler, still technically part of the team since requesting a trade nearly a month ago, practiced with the team for the first time since then - although they shied away from commenting on an ESPN report that Butler tore into both teammates and executives, as well as coach Tom Thibodeau. At one point, Butler found himself guarding Towns in the post and when the big man received the entry pass, Butler yelled, "He can't do [expletive] against me!" and Towns ended up kicking the ball out, league sources said.

He also expressed his hope of facilitating communication and cooperation with China on major worldwide and regional issues. After spending about five hours in Beijing , Pompeo headed for the airport to return to Washington.

"That's raw me", he told Nichols.

The Heat will have some tough decisions to make if they want Butler, as Minnesota won't be giving him up easily. Who is the most talented player on our team? I play hard. I put my body (on the line) every day in practice, every day in games. "KAT", Butler, 29, said Wednesday (via ESPN), referring to Towns. He acknowledged that it might not have been "the right way to do it", but he added, "I can't control that when I'm out there competing". Who is the most God-gifted player on our team - Wiggs. For what it's worth, Teague said the Wolves "played hard" at Wednesday's practice. That's my passion. Everybody leads in different ways.

Butler's preferred trade destination is the Miami Heat, but talks between the two sides have broken down. He said he was "brutally honest", which he doesn't consider to be a bad thing.
