Wait, What? Jimmy Butler is Playing for the Wolves in the Season Opener.
IDK whats going on.
Well, this will be interesting.
Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you — Jimmy Butler, after all his off season tribulations, will be lacing up his Air Jordans for the T-Wolves come opening night.
Confused? Who isn’t.
Reports are suggesting that Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor and Butler are attempting to compromise to find a “common ground.”
With the regular season almost here, @Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor and Jimmy Butler met on Sunday to reach a good-faith agreement until this saga ends.@JonKrawczynski reports on the latest turn as Butler appears set to play Wednesday in San Antonio:https://t.co/cIiQas1Uee

Jimmy’s recent headlines prompted Taylor to hit the road early on Sunday morning for a 90-minute drive to Timberwolves practice.
In the meeting, Taylor and Butler came to an agreement: The T-Wolves owner will continue to work to find a trade as soon as possible. Until that happens, Butler will be a good teammate and compete.

“They want me to go out here and hoop to the best of my abilities,” Butler said of the meeting with Taylor. “Go up against the best, ‘cause that’s what I love to do. And do it for the guys that’s in the same jerseys as me.”
With each trade rumor consistently dismissed, likely over his injury history, perhaps Jimmy Buckets balling out will be the only way the Wolves can get something of value in return for the superstar.
Because as of right now, the market is stagnant.
