The Timberwolves have had talks with several teams since Butler made the request - including Miami - and almost got a deal done with the Heat over the weekend. He would become an unrestricted free agent after this season, and would likely get a five-year maximum contract from interested suitors. I was completely honest about everything. He reportedly met with Butler and attempted to convince him to stay with the Timberwolves, but Butler wouldn't budge and reiterated his desire to be dealt by the season opener. Coaches and players were largely speechless at Butler's tour de force throughout the workout, league sources said.

Butler created a media circus yesterday when he caused a scene at Minnesota's practice and then immediately sat down for an interview with ESPN which he had set up.
Butler said all of Nichols' information was accurate but added, "it's not about money". It's not clear to what extent he participated, but he was at the team facility with teammates. "I don't think it's distracting me, but maybe it is distracting some other guys".
Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reported Wednesday via Twitter that Wolves forward Anthony Tolliver said the following about Butler: "He was. around". Either way, man, I love Jimmy. Like it or not, it wasn't just then, so we can put that to rest. I'm OK. I know the truth, I know what I did, I know who I am to my core. "Whenever opening night happens, we'll go out there and play with who we've got". I didn't go at those two.
