Jimmy Butler and Glen Taylor reach an understanding as Wolves opener nears

Go up against the best, 'cause that's what I love to do.

There was a full team practice on the Mayo Clinic Square courts, and afterward select players talked to reporters while their teammates cooled down by working on their jump shots. It ain't going to change the way I play. That's going to make me smile more.

Jimmy Butler is still suiting up for the Minnesota Timberwolves, with the opener three days away.

Man takes woman hostage in train station
A woman has been taken hostage at the main train station in the German city of Cologne, police said on Monday. The area in and around the station - a major transport hub - has been cordoned off.

That style was never more evident than in a practice session last week in which Butler reportedly berated Thibodeau and General Manager Scott Layden while belittling the Timberwolves' two high-priced young stars, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

Although Butler has had nearly no practice time in training camp and had offseason surgery on his right wrist, he said he's prepared to play this week. Until that happens, Butler will be a good teammate and play as hard as he always does. Fresh off a media circus following the latest installment of the Jimmy Butler saga, the Wolves looked uninspiring to say the least.

"I feel like no matter where he is - he's here right now - he is going to give it his all because that's all he knows". "When I'm gassed and I'm exhausted, I'll look down at Thibs and say, 'Thibs, I need a break.' If he doesn't take me out of the game, I'll call upon Rook (Josh Okogie) to come to the scorer's table".

Djokovic beats Coric to win Shanghai Masters crown
The 37-year-old top seed was more like his old self on Friday, defeating eighth seed Kei Nishikori in two high-quality sets. His first two matches both went three sets. "I found it and I'm just trying to hold on to it as long as I can".

The Timberwolves star swingman will devote himself fully to the team's pursuit of success while he waits for Minnesota to honor his trade request, The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski reported Sunday, citing National Basketball Association sources.

Thibodeau left things fluid on whether Butler would be ready to play against the Spurs. "So please, come on with it". "And do it for the guys that's in the same jerseys as me". The reported pact he struck with Taylor represents a compromise between a disgruntled player and team trying to make the best of a bad situation. I want to compete, they know that. I want you all to win games, my names still attached to this thing, I'm still here, so we better win. "At the end of the day, people can say what they want to say, but he's a victor".
