  • Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler Among NBA Stars to Sit Out on Saturday Night

    A trio of former All-Stars will be inactive on Saturday night, with all three sitting out for either rest or injury rehabilitation. Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard will rest against the Wizards per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, while his opponent from Friday night, Celtics forward Gordon Hayward, is out against the Knicks due to "left ankle recovery" per the team. Leonard scored 31 points last night in the Raptors' 113-101 victory at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.

  • Watch: Timberwolves Fans Boo Jimmy Butler in Minnesota Home Opener

    Timberwolves fans weren't exactly excited to see Jimmy Butler take the floor at the Target Center on Friday night, greeting him with a round of boos before Minnesota's home opener against Cleveland. Friday marked Butler's first appearance on the Timberwolves' home floor since April 23, a Game 3 loss to the Rockets in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. Since then, Butler has requested a trade, held out of training camp and challenged teammates in a profanity-laced practice.

  • Jimmy Butler on boos to M-V-P chants: ‘I love it’

    Jimmy Butler knew it was coming. Butler also said he thought he could win the Timberwolves faithful over again if he just played hard like always. Butler was booed loudly when he was announced — although not as loudly as coach/GM Tom Thibodeau — but by the end of the game they were cheering him and chanting MVP as he dropped 33 points on 12 shots in a Timberwolves win over the Cavaliers, 131-123.

  • Pat Riley informed Heat players he may or may not still trade them for Jimmy Butler

    Jimmy Butler is still waiting to be traded. In yet another strange twist to the Jimmy Butler trade demand saga, Miami Heat president of basketball operations Pat Riley again issued a statement about his team’s negotiations, this time informing the media that he was “pulling the plug” on talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Through a team spokesman prior to his team’s win over the Washington Wizards on Thursday, Riley confirmed that he apologized to the team at Wednesday’s shootaround for the public nature of the discussions, informing those whose names have been mentioned in trade rumors that he both had their backs and was backing out of negotiations.

  • Pat Riley Told Heat Players He's 'Pulling the Plug' on Jimmy Butler Deal

    Heat president of basketball operations Pat Riley addressed the team Thursday to inform players he was "pulling the plug" on a potential Jimmy Butler trade with the Timberwolves, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Riley talked with players on the practice floor and filled them in on the process and "due diligence" the team applied when trying to put a package together to acquire the four-time All-Star from Minnesota. Miami has been mentioned as a potential landing spot for Butler since it was first reported that he was looking to be traded away last month.

    Wiggins wears the No. 22 jersey for Minnesota.
