Jimmy Butler has returned to Minnesota, and in a meeting with Tom Thibodeau on Monday, he reiterated his desire to be traded.
At least three different times in the last week, the Wolves appeared to be making significant progress on a deal but discussions were abdruptly cut off. If a trade is not completed soon, Butler may have to begrudgingly return to the Wolves and start practicing in anticipation of playing in regular-season games. As hard of a stance as he’s taken in this process, no one expects him to forfeit game checks once the season gets going and fantasy owners should feel good about drafting him regardless of the outcome of the ongoing drama.
