Pat Riley Hung Up On Tom Thibodeau When Asked For More Assets

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Miami Heat had basically agreed to a trade of Jimmy Butler for Josh Richardson, Dion Waiters and a protected first round pick.

The deal progressed to point of the two teams exchanging medical information, but Tom Thibodeau called the Heat back and asked for additional assets.

"Thibs called back and wanted more picks," said Jorge Sedano. "And Pat Riley, literally, I was told, called him a mother-bleeper and hung up the phone."

Thibs was trying to kill the trade and it worked.

That is a downright awful trade for the Wolves though and it should have never gotten to the nearing completion point, especially without them unloading Dieng's contract in the trade.  I mean the Heat have been trying to dump Waiters all off-season with no luck, assuming the protections are typical, that pick isn't worth much, which just leaves Josh Richardson, who is a nice player, but certainly nothing to write home about.  If that is all Butler is going to get the Wolves, without unloading Dieng, then the Wolves are better off just playing out the season with Butler and seeing what happens (i.e. waiting until the point in the season when new free agent signings can be traded and gauging value and the team situation at that time).

Sounds like Riley was trying to bully Thibs and it didn't work.  I'd like to know who leaked this.  Maybe Riley hates Thibs because he used to be a C!  Yes, stupid trade for Minn.

Or they had a framework and Thibs tried to change it at the last minute. A lot of people would get ticked off at that.

No way of knowing who leaked it but let's just say stuff always seems to leak when Miami's involved, even when it's with a notoriously low-leak organization like us.

Sounds like the opposite. If you play fantasy football, agree on a trade with someone through text, and when you send the trade over, they counter for slightly more, doesn't that tick you off?

Heat confirm that Pat Riley addressed players about Jimmy Butler trade rumors. Basically said team is "pulling the plug" for now but that's not to say something won't happen later.

If they won a ring with it I think their fans would be fine.

Starting lineup of CP3-Harden-Butler-Tucker-Capela with Melo off the bench could be fun

That is an excellent two-way squad.
