All-Star Jimmy Butler made a dramatic return to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, boldly challenging teammates, coaches and front office executives in the session, league sources told ESPN.

After reported talks between the Heat and Timberwolves on a deal to send Butler to Miami, the New York Times reported that the Florida club had offered fourth-year swingman Josh Richardson and a protected first-round draft pick as part of a package for Butler. Minnesota would be wise to trade Butler before the opener to avoid this distraction from becoming a potential season-derailing issue. Was I brutally honest? Yes.

As told by Reusse, Butler and Wahlberg became friendly in 2013, when Butler was still playing for the Bulls and Wahlberg was filming "Transformers: Age of Extinction" in Chicago.

"He's got 1 year left on his contract and I know Jimmy, that if they don't end up doing the right deal for him [to trade him away], he's gonna play hard and he's gonna stay this year".

According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Butler stopped Towns in the post and talked some smack as well.

Butler created a media circus yesterday when he caused a scene at Minnesota's practice and then immediately sat down for an interview with ESPN which he had set up. But Jimmy Drama said it wasn't about the money. Butler has been in contact with a few teammates over the past few weeks, including point guard Jeff Teague.

Senate confirms Kavanaugh to high court
Lisa Murkowski , R-Alaska, voted against moving forward and said she will not support Kavanaugh in the final vote. Vice President Mike Pence planned to be available Saturday in case his tie-breaking vote was needed.

Butler, asked about that by Nichols, said: "A lot of it is true, but I haven't played basketball in so long and I'm so passionate and I love the game and I don't do it for any reason but to compete and go against the best". "That's really all I've got to say about that".

And look at that: The same night Jimmy Drama pitched his fit, the Bulls held the Pacers under 60 points in the first half of Wednesday night's preseason game. Woo. Like it or not, it wasn't just then, so we can put that to rest. "Yeah, that's who am I", he said.
