Tom Thibodeau pitches Jimmy Butler on rejoining Timberwolves

26 September 2018

The Heat has been very reluctant this offseason to part with Josh Richardson and Bam Adebayo, and it's unclear if Miami would be willing to include Richardson in a deal for Butler.

Butler has been excused from the Timberwolves' Monday media day, also to bypass the start of Minnesota's training camp. Glen, Scott, myself, I think we've made that clear to everyone.

The deal will pay Towns, 22, more than he could make with any other team under a rule in the collective bargaining agreement that allows teams to pay a home-grown player coming off his rookie contract 35 percent of the National Basketball Association salary cap. Butler's interest the Knicks may be overstated, according to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today, as he wants to win now as opposed to later.

The World Cup victor can flit in and out of games and today was no different - but his contribution for Fred's goal was special. He laid off a wonderful one-touch flick to give Fred an extra yard of space which he was able to take advantage of to score.

Open and roar through the Pan Pacific draw unscathed as the buzz over her grand slam win reverberated across the country. In the 5th game of the 1st set on Sunday, Osaka made a series of errors with her backhand, losing the set 4-6.

In that deal, the Timberwolves acquired Thaddeus Young from the 76ers, who got Luc Mbah a Moute and Alexy Shved from Minnesota and a 2015 first-round pick from the Cavaliers.

Butler, 29, averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists for Minnesota a year ago, who made the playoffs for the first time since the 2004 season. More money is available to Butler if he plays out his contract and enters the open market in 2019.
