"He can definitely rub you the wrong way if you're not willing to put the work in, so a lot of what is going on [in Minnesota] is not surprising to me".

Garnett returned to Minnesota for the final season and a half of his career and acted as a mentor to Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns, the young, well-paid Wolves who are seen as being part of Butler's issues with the team.

Just this past week he made a surprise appearance at Wolves practice, where he repeatedly challenged everyone on the team, shouting, "You (bleeping) need me".

It's clear that Thibodeau is attempting to do quite a bit of damage control for both himself and Butler. Thibodeau has said any deal must be in the best interest of the Timberwolves.

"Some things that have been reported are correct, some are not", he said. "It's not uncommon when players scrimmage that there will be some talk". They will take up a big chunk of the Wolves' salary cap going forward, and if their progress stalls, the Wolves' fortunes could as well. Asked whether he felt Butler was displaying leadership in what he did, Thibodeau gave a nuanced answer.
