  • Jimmy Butler shares 'most interesting detail' of infamous Timberwolves practice

    Jimmy Butler is telling his side of the story after starring in the months-long NBA reality show of when and if the Minnesota Timberwolves would trade him. Butler, now a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, went on teammate JJ Redick’s podcast to tell all about requesting a trade, sitting out the preseason and a secret from the infamous practice that no one yet told. Butler told Redick he was told by management to practice, which “lit the match,” and their insistence on him practicing with a team that was likely to trade him made the fire roar.

  • Embiid frustrated by new role with Sixers

    Joel Embiid got Friday night off for "rest," but the Philadelphia 76ers star said that's not what he needs to fix his lagging production. "My body feels great, and it's just I haven't been playing well," Embiid said. Instead, he point to a changed role since the arrival of Jimmy Butler in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

  • Simmons warns NBA: Sixers are just getting better!

    The Sixers are up to third in the East, although still three games back from the rampant Toronto Raptors, having enjoyed an extended run of form since the arrival of Jimmy Butler from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Butler's departure from the T-Wolves had long been mooted, but Philly made their move - sending Dario Saric and Robert Covington the other way - and they are reaping the rewards.

  • Timberwolves look to reach .500 against Spurs

    Four weeks ago, Derrick Rose scored an electrifying 50 points against the Utah Jazz and the Minnesota Timberwolves were a .500 team. Then came a winless West Coast trip and Jimmy Butler's exit to the Philadelphia 76ers. Since Butler was traded, the Timberwolves are slowly climbing toward .500 and their first opportunity at reaching the break-even point is Wednesday at home against the San Antonio Spurs.

  • Upstart Timberwolves, without Butler, visit Cavaliers

    Two weeks ago, the Jimmy Butler saga officially ended for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Freed of the distraction of an all-star player seeking an exit, the Timberwolves began salvaging their season and inching back to .500. With five wins in seven games since dealing Butler to Philadelphia, the Timberwolves attempt to keep the good times rolling Monday night in a visit to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are on their first winning streak of the season.
