A look at some of the texts sent to Jimmy Butler

Minnesota Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio of Spain plays during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Sacramento Kings Saturday

Another important factor that should not go unmentioned is that all this will be happening under the watchful eye of the experienced and award-winning head coach Tom Thibodeau, who has been reunited with Butler after coaching Chicago a couple of years ago. "With that being said, that's my goal, and that's going to be our goal when we step into that practice gym". He spoke of the importance of earning the trust of his teammates with hard work and referenced his past trials and tribulations, which included he and his brother fending for themselves for a time when Dunn was nine years old and their mother was in and out of jail at times.

No wonder he was defending the idea that Euro bigs aren't as soft as people like to think they are. "When a player has that type of athleticism and skill set, it's exciting to think about the opportunities as far as running in transition and attacking on the break".

"You can't do the things hes done without a lot of talent", Thibodeau added.

Butler averaged almost 24 points per game last season, and is one of the better defensive players in the league.

"We have a great young core obviously with Karl and with Andrew, and we're excited to have Jimmy".

"Thursday night we made a decision to move a great player". I'm just here to push them to the best of their abilities, and I know that they're gonna do that. Afterward, Towns boldly declared that the Timberwolves' stars belonged in discussions about the NBA's elite trios with the addition of Butler. "He has mine. We're going to be in this together".

"You can use him at any perimeter spot", Hoiberg said. "We're not looking backwards".

Maybe all three of the assets the Bulls got back for Butler turn into stars.

"I mean, I just feel like everybody has something to say", he said.

"I had found out through sources, that by getting Jimmy Butler, the Timberwovles are now saying, You know what, we can do better than Ricky Rubio at point guard because Jimmy Butler is going to help us land attractive free agents". "Let's get into these playoffs and make some noise".

"A really good friend of mine", Butler said.

With free agency starting in less than a week, Nikola Mirotic's future with the team will be up in the air.

The Minnesota Timberwolves began the draft and off-season about as well as any team could. But with that being said, I've got my phone in my back pocket. "And we'll get better".
