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

Even in trying to get traded, Butler "wants the best for that organization", George told reporters on Friday, adding that he has spoken with Butler about the drama with the Timberwolves.

"As to what has been reported in the past 24 hours, I have too much respect for Tom Thibodeau and all that he's accomplished in the league".

Three weeks ago, Butler requested a trade from the Timberwolves in a meeting with president of basketball operations and coach Tom Thibodeau. You can get the f-- up out of here.

In the wake of Jimmy Butler's recent trade demand, practice outburst and ESPN interview, Garnett was asked by The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski for his take on the current situation with his former team.

"I never requested a trade because I viewed 'Sota as mine", Garnett said.

Ikea will open 15 new stores across Mexico, Estonia, Ukraine, Puerto Rico, Oman, Luxembourg, Macau and the Philippines in FY19. Ingka said it experienced sales growth in a majority of its 30 markets, with one of the biggest increases recorded in China.

"I don't know if he had the power to come out and force a trade like this". The Heat have always been seen as the favorites for Butler, while the Rockets have also been engaged in trade talks. "We're always going to put the team first".

Asked if he was pleased with the practice, Thibodeau said: "You're never pleased with practice".

Butler, a four-time All-Star, told ESPN's Rachel Nichols that he has made it clear to Timberwolves management for months that he does not see a long-term future with the franchise.

"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.

Center Karl-Anthony Towns just said that he's grateful to be playing. George told the Indiana Pacers he planned on leaving the team when his free agency rolled around in the summer of 2018, with Los Angeles apparently at the top of his potential destination list.
