Now, as Minnesota readies for its season opener on Wednesday, it appears the Timberwolves are prepared to open the season with him on the team as trade talks have cooled.

"So I'm not convinced that every team that will trade or the team that ultimately trades for Jimmy Butler will feel necessary to give him five years".

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. "What I said to him in the meantime is our GM, Scott Layden, will be talking to other teams to see if there is a trade that works".

And Minnesota ownership is committed to making a wise decision.

Butler has requested a trade this summer but looks set to line up for the Timberwolves at the start of the new National Basketball Association season.

Garnett went on to say, "He knows how to make money, but he don't know anything about basketball". "But that is not what we have agreed to".

"Yes I think that he's made it very clear that he would not re-sign with us at the end of the year and therefore it is in our interest to get a trade so that we can get a player or two to replace him that helps our team", Taylor told Hartman.

And when asked if Butler will play with maximum effort, he said: "Butler said that is the only way he knows how to do it".

Taylor also said he doesn't regret hiring Thibodeau in 2016.

"Yes, yes, he is a good coach and I have faith in him", he said. He'll be in the lineup Wednesday night, Taylor told Sid.
