Jimmy Butler called a players-only meeting with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday.

After reported talks between the Heat and Timberwolves on a deal to send Butler to Miami, the New York Times reported that the Florida club had offered fourth-year swingman Josh Richardson and a protected first-round draft pick as part of a package for Butler.

Earlier this year, the Sun-Times reported that Butler and Celtics star Kyrie Irving had discussed partnering up in free agency next year.

Trump says USA close to finding out fate of Saudi journalist
But the disappearance of the journalist, however prominent, may not affect President Trump's bet on the Saudi heir to the throne. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia on October 9 invited Turkish experts and relevant officials to visit its Istanbul consulate.

This saga started in mid-September, when it became known that Butler told Thibodeau that he wanted a trade. I'm going to be honest: If your No. 1 priority isn't winning, people can tell. He then sat down for an interview with ESPN, in which he said his relationship with the Timberwolves is "not fixed".

"KAT came at me", Butler said.

Butler wasn't made available to local media after Wednesday's practice, his first since he asked to be traded.

Butler's antics were the talk of NBA Twitter on Wednesday. How clear was Butler? But Jimmy Drama said it wasn't about the money. With Taylor upfront about his desire to make a quick deal for Butler, one meeting attendee said, "The owner's trading him".

Still, the team could look to Phoenix, who just fired their General Manager, as a possible spot to unload players.

"I'm not saying that Wahlberg was the adviser for the dramatic short featuring Butler that was played out on Wednesday at Mayo Clinic Square, but it was done well enough to be a Marky Mark Production", Reusse writes. The All-Star forward's return to the team included "verbally challenging teammates, coaches and front office executives" and a scrimmage in which Butler led third-stringers against the team's starters, according to ESPN. Either way, man, I love Jimmy. I'm telling you nobody in that locker room is gonna say that he is a bad teammate. Like it or not, it wasn't just then, so we can put that to rest.
