Earlier this year, the Sun-Times reported that Butler and Celtics star Kyrie Irving had discussed partnering up in free agency next year. His impasse with the Timberwolves is now in its fourth week, starting when he told coach Tom Thibodeau before training camp that he wants to be traded.
In an interview taped with ESPN after practice, Butler acknowledged that "a lot" of the network's report was true and that the scene in practice was him just showing passion and being "brutally honest".
Butler told ESPN that he plans to be back at practice Thursday, but cautioned that the relationship with the Timberwolves is still fractured.
"KAT came at me", Butler said.

"It could be, it could be", Butler said. "His message was similar to one he displayed Wednesday: I run this", The Athletic reported.
One of Jimmy Butler's teammates appears to have had enough of his antics. "I'm sorry if I go about it the wrong way". Strangely, the Timberwolves cancelled practice Thursday and did not make any players, coaches or members of management available to the media.
Still, the team could look to Phoenix, who just fired their General Manager, as a possible spot to unload players. "I think we trade it for a great player". But when you go in that locker room and you ask those guys who do you want to play with?
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.
