Report: Jimmy Butler verbally challenged team at practice

The good news for Minnesota is that Jimmy Butler attended a team practice on Wednesday. The bad news is he reportedly was acting out.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday that Butler practiced with the Timberwolves — the first time that has happened since training camp opened. However, Woj reports that Butler was verbally challenging teammates, coaches and the front office.

A quote from Anthony Tolliver about Butler’s presence at practice says all you need to know about the matter.

Another staffer shared how bad it was:

Butler has demanded a trade from Minnesota, but head coach/team president Tom Thibodeau reportedly is trying to make the situation work. Butler may rejoin the team, but it does not sound like he is interested in making things work. The good news for his sake is that the Miami Heat reportedly are still trying to trade for him.

This is the exact type of story and headline owner Glen Taylor was trying to avoid when telling his front office to trade Butler.
