Thibodeau has said any deal must be in the best interest of the Timberwolves.
Of course, Butler demanded a trade from the Timberwolves about three weeks ago and has stayed away from the team during training camp as the team attempted to find a trade for him. Even in a preseason game, playing defense like the Wolves did on Friday night isn't acceptable from an National Basketball Association team. The Bucks had 84 points at halftime, led by as much as 41 in the second half and eventually won by a score of 143-121. With the poor defensive outing, Minnesota concluded its preseason by finishing last in defensive efficiency, surrendering 112.8 points per 100 possessions, 3.5 points worse than the New Orleans Pelicans. We're not going to get into daily behavior and stuff like that.
Towns said the nature of the loss bothered him most. When you wanted out, you wanted out. You can get beat. "That's my love of the game, that's the raw me, me at my finest". But you can't get embarrassed.

Notes: Wiggins was not with the team Friday, remaining home while awaiting the birth of his first child. Asked whether he felt Butler was displaying leadership in what he did, Thibodeau gave a nuanced answer.
"Jimmy doesn't have anything to do with how hard we play out there".
Still, George, who said he's talked to Butler "a little bit" about what's going on, backs what Butler's mind is at.
That intensity lacked at times, as Antetokounmpo maneuvered his way into the lane and to the basket seemingly at will. "Our conversations have been nothing but cordial and I have never used that kind of language in negotiations, but I do admit to telling Danny Ainge to ...", Riley said in a statement through a team spokesman, acknowledging trade talks with Minnesota.
"I'm just hoping they can get through this rough patch and everybody can get on the same patch and figure it out", he said.
