All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler and his representatives have grown increasingly frustrated with the Minnesota Timberwolves’ handling of trade talks and seriously question whether the organization as a whole – “from longtime owner Glen Taylor on down” — are truly trying to find a deal, according to Sam Amick of The Athletic.

Butler has received interest from plenty of suitors, as more than half the league has reached out to Minnesota with varying levels of interest, but the feedback coming to Butler remains the same. The Timberwolves are flat out asking for too much in return, often with counter-offers that are utterly delusional and unlikely to generate a response from potential partnering teams.

This unwillingness to move down on their asking price has created a stalemate of sorts when it comes to engagement, making teams already pull out of their efforts to make a deal happen due to the increasing frustration of dealing with head coach/president Tom Thibodeau and general manager Scott Layden.

It is believed that Taylor is the most willing of the three, even telling teams to skip the chain of command and call him personally if they must — but some teams have taken him up on that offer, yet no trade has evolved from those conversations.

Butler was given a week-long excuse to remain out of training camp to nurse recovery in his recently-repaired hand, but that will expire on Tuesday, with no imminent deal in sight.

The four-time All-Star could be fined if he does not show up for training camp on Tuesday, something which may just turn this storm into a tsunami of organizational chaos as the Timberwolves head into the regular season.
