The Minnesota Timberwolves declined to accept a trade offer from the Miami Heat for Jimmy Butler that was centered on Josh Richardson and a protected first round pick.

With Butler requesting a trade, the trade package offered by Miami is considered very competitive.

Numerous teams have complained in recent days that Tom Thibodeau and Scott Layden are acting like they really don’t want to make a deal.

But Glen Taylor reportedly has balked at moving forward with the trade with the Heat.
