"I did expect (Butler) there and some things that have been reported are correct and some are not", he said.

The report Riley is referencing is from former Heat broadcaster Jorge Sedano, who on ESPN Radio in Los Angeles claimed Riley used profanity to address Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau during trade negotiations.

Jimmy Butler has the support of at least one player in the National Basketball Association as speculation continues to build around the future of the Timberwolves star following his trade request.

You can look at this one of two ways; Riley is eager to re-engage the Timberwolves and, by.

Thibodeau said he's in the Twin Cities working on his conditioning. "What goes on in practice should always stay in practice", Garnett told The Athletic.

"I can't remember exactly", he replied when asked about what was said.

The awkwardness continued during the show when the professional dancers entered the balcony and nervously awaited their results. They were given 28 points from the judges, one of the highest scores of the episode, putting them in fourth place overall.

He also had a confrontation with Karl-Anthony Towns, whom Butler has criticized, along with teammate Andrew Wiggins, for not working hard enough to fulfill his potential.

Regarding Butler's comments about Towns and Wiggins, Thibodeau said: "To me, like they're young guys improving, this is a team sport".

There was no reason to drag this saga out for weeks, knowing that eventually Butler would return to the team and cause even more drama.

The Timberwolves are believed to be asking for several of the Heat's most valuable assets: Bam Adebayo, Goran Dragic, Kelly Olynyk, Josh Richardson, Justise Winslow and a first-round pick. "You're always striving for it to be as good as possible". He acknowledged his team would have to deal with the constant media attention over the situation and whether Butler will be traded. Yet as of Saturday morning, Butler remains on the team, less than a week before their season begins. Our job is to get ready to play.

Just as trade talks between the Timberwolves and Heat broke down, Pat Riley had some parting words for Tom Thibodeau. The Timberwolves reached the playoffs last season and lost to Houston in the first round. "It's OK to confront, that's not an issue". You can get the up out of here. The finalized version of the trade involving Richardson, Waiters, and a protected first-round pick was reportedly agreed to before Thibodeau made a decision to get greedy.
