The Timberwolves will open up the regular season on October 17 against the San Antonio Spurs. Which was probably part of Butler's goal (that and he is frustrated the deal isn't done, even though the timing of his declaration, September 18 right before camps opened, screwed Minnesota over).

Minnesota had shared Butler's medical information with Miami late last week, sources said, a typical last step before finalizing a trade.

As the Miami Heat continue to push for a trade that would bring Jimmy Butler to Miami, Butler returned to Timberwolves practice on Wednesday.

So where do we stand in the Jimmy Butler trade saga seven days from opening night?

Earlier this year, the Sun-Times reported that Butler and Celtics star Kyrie Irving had discussed partnering up in free agency next year.

When reporters were allowed in at the conclusion of practice, Butler wasn't on the court. "It's just a matter or when".

According to ESPN, the Wolves were close to a Butler trade with the Heat this weekend, but it fell apart.

Despite his owner's intent to deal Butler, Thibodeau wasn't done trying to keep his star shooting guard. Welcome to a new season of Timberwolves basketball.

The first reports of serious negotiations arose in the first week of October.

The Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets also haven't given up on the idea of landing Butler in a trade, according to multiple sources and reports. The Athletic made the outlook of a trade sound grim, however. Butler is said to prefer the Heat over all other potential destinations.

Butler showed up for his first practice of the preseason on Wednesday, and he didn't exactly opt to blend in with his Timberwolves' teammates.

Butler requested a trade three weeks ago, wanting out of coach Tom Thibodeau's system and out of the cloud of discord hanging above him, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. "You can't win without me".
