  • 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.

  • 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.
