Glen Taylor confirms Timberwolves are still trying to trade Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler'Has Eyes for 76ers And Is Their Missing Piece

Jimmy Butler plans to play in games and coach and president Tom Thibodeau's job is safe, according to the person who decides their fate with the Timberwolves, Glen Taylor.

Taylor told the newspaper he met with Butler this week and that going forward, the four-time All-Star will practice daily with the Wolves and give 100 percent in games because that is "the only way he knows how to do it".

Taylor said Thibodeau has his full support and his job is not on the line this season.

"Well, I'm OK with it", Taylor said.

After the Minnesota Timberwolves' 112-108 loss to the Antonio Spurs to start the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season, Jimmy Butler tells that media that "nobody likes to lose".


There's no telling what will come of Butler's future in Minnesota, but one thing is for sure: the Heat won't get into another conversation with the Timberwolves unless they prove that they are truly ready to deal.

"Yes, yes, he is a good coach and I have faith in him", Taylor told the Star Tribune. Taylor, in fact, responded in the affirmative when asked if the team was committed to trading Butler, and added they aren't planning on him remaining with the team beyond the season. But eventually I think that in listening to Jimmy, Thibs and I are lined up on this.

Meanwhile, Wolves legend Kevin Garnett also weighed in on the Minnesota-Butler saga on Tuesday, taking a swipe at Taylor on TNT's pregame show for the opening night of the season.

DeMar DeRozan says "it feels good" to close the chapter on an extremely long chapter. "I totally get it".
