The Minnesota Timberwolves have announced that guard Jimmy Butler is expected to play in the team’s season opener against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday. This after a preseason full of drama that saw the star guard sit out the majority of the preseason and demand a trade from the team.
Chris Broussard and Rob Parker discuss Butler’s return to the court and what they expect to see from him. Rob says that this move by the team sends a bad message to other players and that if Butler doesn’t want to be there they need to do everything they can to get him out of Minnesota. Chris thinks that if Butler comes in and makes a point of playing poorly it would be in the best interest of the team to suspend Butler and move on.
