On Wednesday, Butler took an apparent step towards a return to the Timberwolves, as Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported he went through a practice with the team.

As the GM watched on the sidelines during a scrimmage, sources said that Butler yelled to Layden: "You f--ing need me, Scott".

Days ago, multiple news outlets reported that a trade between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Miami Heat for Jimmy Butler had fallen apart.

Butler requested a trade before the start of training camp but the Wolves have been unable to find a trade to their satisfaction. However, it remains unclear if four-time All-Star Jimmy Butler will be in San Antonio for the opener. Owner Glen Taylor reportedly has told the team to trade him, but Thibodeau, who's also the president of basketball operations, has resisted and wants to persuade Butler to stay for the final year of his deal.

Butler showed up for his first practice of the preseason on Wednesday, and he didn't exactly opt to blend in with his Timberwolves' teammates. Some in league circles have strongly suggested the drama between Butler and Towns was real and centered on a woman.

Here an update on the trade situation: Talks between the Timberwolves and Heat broke down over the weekend - because Miami felt Minnesota altered the deal, of course, that may just be part of a lot of different, competing agendas in the front office.

Minnesota's front office stood firm in their desire to keep Butler and reportedly shut down inquires from opposing teams, per Wojnarowski. Tucker and were shot down fast (Houston does not want to put Tucker in a trade). 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".

Butler doesn't seem content burning bridges with the organization.
