Woj: Jimmy Butler trade talks 'collapsed’ between Timberwolves and Heat

Jimmy Butler was nearly traded to the Heat over the weekend. More

Minnesota, meanwhile, still hasn't moved him, and on Sunday morning, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that their desire to get as much back as possible kept a trade from happening in recent days.

Teams typically share medical information only when on the verge of an agreement.

The saga of Jimmy Butler's pending separation with the Minnesota Timberwolves took another turn over the weekend.

ESPN's report said Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor and Heat owner Micky Arison were involved in a negotiations, with Taylor known to be pushing for a trade in the wake of Butler's trade demand two weeks ago.

The talks quickly fell apart, meaning Minnesota still has Butler on the roster.

George W. Bush made several calls reassuring Collins about Kavanaugh
Vice-President Mike Pence planned to be available Saturday in case his tie-breaking vote was needed, which now seems unlikely. Some 164 people were arrested, most for demonstrating on the Capitol steps, 14 for disrupting the Senate's roll call vote.

Butler is a four-time All-Star who has told Minnesota that he'll leave in free agency in July and wants a trade now. Sometime between now and then, Minnesota raised their asking price, and Miami Heat was seemingly put off because they'd already consented to add the versatile two-way guard Josh Richardson as a sweetener in the deal.

Miami's believed willingness to pay Butler something in the neighborhood of a five-year, $190 million maximum contract next summer has played a part in Butler's enthusiasm in pursuing a deal there.

Despite this, Miami seems the most likely destination for Butler with the report stating other teams have been put off by the strong link.

Houston has also been aggressive in trading for Butler, sources said.

Previous reports indicated the Timberwolves' preference that several of the Heat's blue-chip assets be included in a Butler trade - namely, Bam Adebayo, Josh Richardson, and a 2019 first-round pick.
