Report: Jimmy Butler leaves Minnesota Timberwolves teammates, coaches 'speechless' in return to practice

#Jimmy Butler

After trade talks fell apart between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Miami Heat over the weekend, Jimmy Butler participated in practice on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Butler, however, was "vociferous and emotional at times," targeting head coach Tom Thibodeau, general manager Scott Layden, starting small forward Andrew Wiggins and starting centre Karl-Anthony Towns, to the point where his teammates and coaches were left "speechless."

Butler returned to Minnesota earlier this week to reiterate his desire to be traded, but The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski and Shams Charania report that the Timberwolves are still expecting to start the season with the four-time All-Star on the roster.

The Timberwolves haven't had serious conversations with any other team in the league besides the Heat, per Wojnarowski.

Butler will reportedly break his silence in a sit-down interview with ESPN that is set to air on Wednesday night.
