Minnesota Timberwolves: Could Tom Thibodeau lose his job with Jimmy Butler practicing?

Minnesota Timberwolves: Could Tom Thibodeau lose his job with Jimmy Butler practicing?

The Wolves recently turned down a Miami Heat package including their prized player Josh Richardson and a first-round pick in return for Butler, but owner Glen Taylor didn't see it as enough and turned down the deal, still without an imminent agreement to ship Butler out, as they prepare to start the season with him. The bad news is he reportedly was acting out.

Butler has demanded a trade but Thibodeau has reportedly continued to beg him to stay and a near deal with Miami over the weekend fell apart when the Wolves asked for more. "Butler left teammates and coaches largely speechless".

Forward Anthony Tolliver and guard Jeff Teague took a few Butler-related questions after practice, but neither would even fully confirm that Butler practiced. He dominated the gym in every way.

Bush confirms daughter Barbara Bush has tied the knot
Barbara Pierce Bush was married Sunday in a private ceremony in coastal ME , her family announced in a statement. The bride met her new husband in November after being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend, People reported.

The Heat remain the lone legitimate suitor for Butler as of Wednesday afternoon as the Timberwolves have reportedly "had no serious, active talks with any other team".

Neither Towns nor Wiggins confronted Butler at any point, league sources said.

Either way, Butler had previously refused Thibodeau's request to re-join the team, according to multiple reports from The Athletic.

Intel reveals new 9th gen Core CPUs, led by Core i9-9900K
The new 9th Gen Intel Core desktop processors will be made available in the market starting from 19 October onwards globally. Coming with Intel's first consumer i9 processor also comes the first i7 desktop processor not to feature Hyper-threading.

Proposed changes from Minnesota created a breakdown in earlier trade negotiations just as the teams were close to finalizing a deal. However, it remains unclear if four-time All-Star Jimmy Butler will be in San Antonio for the opener. The Heat and president Pat Riley were "as aggressive as any team in pursuit of a Jimmy Butler trade", per Wojnarowski. A potential trade with Miami stalled late last week. He would become an unrestricted free agent after this season, and would likely get a five-year maximum contract from interested suitors.

While the Butler saga seems to be dragging on, it's only been three weeks, as one GM pointed out to AmicoHoops.
