It is unclear if Butler made his full-time return to the Timberwolves season or just proved a point of some kind in the practice. The bad news is he reportedly was acting out. ESPN reporter Stefano Fusaro illustrated earlier today that the Houston Rockets were called again by Minnesota again asking about another potential Jimmy Butler trades, which we have some ideas about here.

He reportedly "verbally challenged" his teammates, as well as the Timberwolves' coaching staff and front office.

According to one source, Butler and a "team of third-stringers" beat the Wolves' starters in a scrimmage.

The T-Wolves' first game of the season is on Wednesday when they visit the San Antonio Spurs.

As stated before, not only would fans be mad, but there are certain players on the Wolves that would potentially riot over Butler coming back to the forefront of the Wolves' starting lineup.

Anthony Tolliver, who's been on nine teams in 10 seasons, said that he's never witnessed anything quite like the Butler situation during his time in the league, but he insisted that it's not a distraction for him. If he's not, then he won't.

The practice comes after sources said that the Heat were still pressing for a trade to acquire Butler. The Heat reportedly pushed the Timberwoles to "accept a revised offer" for Butler with a deal potentially centered around center Bam Adebayo, guard Josh Richardson and a first-round pick. The teams reportedly advanced to the point of exchanging player medical information, which is typically the last step of National Basketball Association trade negotiations.

Outside of the Heat, the Timberwolves have had no serious, active talks ongoing with any other team recently, league sources said.

Information from ESPN's Chris Herring was used in this report.
