What's the latest with the scoop? Ah, what's going on, Jordana? I'm doing pretty good. Hope you're having often do that. Thank you. Yes, It's a beautiful day. But this is some interesting new news. And of course, I have a 1,000,000 questions, and I'm sure there are very few answers because has this news been confirmed yet? I mean, it hasn't I don't think that anybody with the Cymbals organization as confirmed anything quite yet, But the reality is is that this authority has broke now, right and And by the way, the first broke the news is going to be. He's going to be on my show a little bit later this evening, but I mean, this is not realistically at least in my pain in the side of surprise. Like this is not like Maybe the timing of it up hearing about it today is is something that maybe I've caught a lot of people off guard, but just the overall story in itself. Is not shocking to me at all. Like we like what we've known for the last years that Glen was talking about selling the temples like when people when people had heard about Kevin Garnett interest. Why was Why was interest from Kevin Garnett in regard to being one of the minority owners or potentially abide because he knew that Taylor Um, I was looking to sell the franchise there were there was speculation. I remember the gentleman's name about the top of my head and what business beyond But there was AH potential. The guy that was interested in the organization like four or five years ago. So I say All of that is the simple fact is that to me this didn't catch me off guard. It's been talked about in disgust that he was looking to sell the franchise the last few years. So it is Kevin Garnett buying it? Is he the new owner? Ah, right to the chase. I don't think that anybody knows who the potential next owner is. And I wouldn't think that Kevin Garnett will be the new Walter. I don't think they're coming. Garnett has the The financial resource is Teo to be the owner outright. Apparently let's see. He originally paid about 88 million for the team. He opted to forgo a public sale and he asked rain rain is private equity firm. Two, I guess find a buyer. Privately, Taylor's interested interest in selling is not related. He claims to financial losses or covert 19. But you say you're not surprised. So he just What is? I mean, Do you get bored of owning an MBA franchise? Um, I mean, I don't know, I I don't know. I mean, if you get into it, we'll put it like this when he got into it with the whole idea of not only investing and buying a franchise that also Really doing Minnesota a favor, Right? You see, Morgan is that he kept the NBA here in Minnesota. So I don't think that that leading up to all the bad enough Speculation and the thought that it was going to move to New Orleans that anybody think that Glen Table is going to own only mental intent rules or was actively looking to pursue buying the organization. I feel like he fell into this. And then you know, he fell in love with being an owner, and it's probably one, of course

Can you ask coach well virtually coach got away? But it's what is the difference between a swing pass. And a screen pass said what is the difference between a swing pass and a screen pass?

This is an interesting one guys I hadn't thought about this. And I think it bears reading here. So starting with Glenn Taylor interview. He said so refreshing to hear an owner talk about setting a course for championship MA, she'll seems unrealistic for Minnesota. But hearing it is the reason I may attend a wolves game twins never talk about pursuit of championships. I like that from coming from Glenn Taylor. I hadn't thought about that. He is what he said. And we don't hear that a lot Minnesota. Maybe maybe we don't. Who we are. But one thing last United started center specially Friday people just really want this team to do.

"There doesn't really bother me to be honest. But I can understand why would bother a lot of people. It's like I mean to me he was a Dead Man Walking as soon as that second trade finally happened. He had lost the power struggle with Jimmy. He wasn't able to keep them in the fold. Yes. So he was gone. Eventually probably should've just it should have done any immediately. I think is your point which I would have been fine with that. But I would rather do it today. Then wait, another two months for no reason. Yeah. I would rather do it today. If they if we knew that Ryan Saunders was definitely the interim coach, and then they were going to conduct a thorough search for the the coach to kind of guide cat through his prime. But this seems like more of a half asked wolves strategy where Glenn Taylor came out yesterday. And said, you know, we're gonna give Ryan Saunders every opportunity to show he can be our head coach. And it's like, I don't know what you're really gonna learn in forty two games and particularly the playoffs or the goal like it's just going to be really tough for them to gauge. And they're going to be in. Limbo, all over again at the end of the year. They should have just fired Tibbs in September is I guess, my my predominant point here. I'm with you. Hey, the reason why I asked you about the whole like polite in mediocre versus good in jerk is I'm trying to spin this Ford on behalf thibodeau if I was his agent, you know, kind of trying to pitch him to future perspective employers. This would be my take and tell me what you think of this. Okay. Yes. Might might take would be Jimmy Butler was right. The whole organization was soft. The only two dogs and the whole organization were Tibbs in Jimmy everybody else. Didn't care enough about winning. Wiggins didn't towns never improved on defense in the first couple of years. The ownership wasn't completely committed to. Like trying to win and leading Tibbs focus on basketball. They were always trying to get him to go. Eat corn dogs at the Minnesota state fair is this just a separate organization that didn't really realize what it takes to win at a high level in the NBA tiptoes was doing that before them during his first season. When Jimmy was healthy, they were winning at a very high level playing tiptoes way he was able to get an offense that was top five in the league with three guys that didn't really mesh that well together in Wiggins Townsend and Butler, they were able to kinda cut against the grain a little bit in terms of how they played and that would be my pitch at do you think that could work or as is his future prospects look in a little darker? It's going to be a couple of years. I think things are going to have to post walls. I didn't sell you know. I mean, I would sure be part of the pitch and you could make this a Glenn Taylor problem instead of Tibbs problem. But I just here's the main thing Tibbs is strength and his signature as a coach is coaching elite defenses. And I it's unclear whether his his argument would have to be that cat was just so soft that things were never going to click in Minnesota. And if you give me another chance I'm going to build the best defense in the league. I just don't know if he still has those skills, and if I guess more accurately, if the skills he has are still relevant in today's league because things are charged. There's a little chip Kelly vibe to it's. Yeah. And it's a bummer 'cause I love chip Kelly and I loved peak tips. Yeah. I just mean by that like, the what was the best practices in two thousand nine might not be the best price nineteen. Yeah. It's tough. But anyways, that's enough. Tibbs?.

"What he wanted without violating the rules of a contract. Well, technically. But he sat out how many games for general, soreness or tired, or whatever it wasn't. He called it. And so weird Glenn Taylor on yesterday. We're talking about this. How how are you guys can resolve this thing at the league level because the players can do whatever they want right now. We I see it. If they want to sit out there playing a game that they don't wanna play you say, they're sore. In God help you if a guy pulled a hamstring a night that he said they didn't want to play you have real issues. So that led to an interesting conversation about. What can you do? What can you do to prevent another Jimmy Butler situation? How how can you put in place something a template a contract a collective bargaining agreement? So that a guy can't walk all over you not just asking for a trade that seems to me to be legitimate that you can go to Logan's ation say, I'm not happy here. Trade me. But to be able to take days off and training camp off. Without any ramifications. He didn't get punished golfer that he didn't lose a dime. He didn't get fined he didn't get anything. All yes. Do say that he's sore. He doesn't have to play that night. What can you do? To take a standing instead. I don't know what the answer is six five one nine eight nine nine two two six six five one nine eight nine nine two two six. Maybe there's somebody out there that that's an employer. I don't know what you can do if somebody says I don't feel good today. And what happens if they've already used their sick days? I don't know what leverage you have. How do you decide whether somebody's sick or injured now? Now, it's been a remarkable marketable healing process for Butler because he hasn't missed anything for Philadelphia. So apparently, whatever it was that was lingering is now he's cured. Maybe you said east coast sunshine in the in the great attitudes that they have out there. Maybe there's lifted his spirits up and he's able to play through now, maybe finally pronounced himself healthy. But what would you do what what.

"Glenn Taylor atop Ditto Carl towns Andrew Wiggins. I don't really matter, but I have nothing bad to say about the way Jimmy Butler handled it at least to me. It was interesting. Joel Embiid reached out to Kat in Wiggins before he reached out to Jimmy Butler and got their cake on how Jimmy would fit in Philly and got good reviews from actually do you think they were being completely honest. Of course, not. Can't put the genie back in the model. Dies. Can't put the G back in the ball. And look, maybe be didn't tell me everything. They I'm sure you didn't tell me everything that they told. That's right. You were with the Sixers the day. The trade went down. I got rerouted the Memphis. But they that airport rank oh. Empty? All. Right. Go ahead. Yeah. But he wouldn't ask them. Hey, did you enjoy MU? How do you think he's gonna fit in Philly? And I tell you what that is going to be a fascinating chemistry experiment, and it's really on Jimmy Butler to make it work because it would be his third strike. K there was drama Chicago kind of two different cores with him. Obviously there was drama in Minnesota. And so is something here. Jackie before you know, I was just doing some reconnaissance on Jimmy Butler career this week and talking about the trade that the the bulls made with the wolves. And I was reminded by an executive that the Celtics Jimmy was very available and the bulls really wanted to trade him to the Celtics. We're we're I someone who's credited the bulls. For getting out ahead of this recognizing that Jimmy potential was going to be an issue, and they and despite being mocked, they did very well in that trade. The Celtics did not make a bid for Jimmy Butler. He was very valuable to them. I mean, they may have talked that was Tatum. Well, I mean, they could have gotten him a number of different ways through the prices to high Brian prices too. But they also just weren't interested in Jimmy Butler. Quits the select price. It's always at what price. Yeah. It's always at what I was told that they want to make an offer. I don't know how true that is. Okay. Well, let's put I think making an offer suggests that they were here's where semantics come in. They they probably didn't make an offer. But did they listen to an offer you so that's some antics? Okay. I was told it wasn't necessarily unanimous in Houston. They were in on the bidding they made offers, but it wasn't necessarily unanimous because of chemistry concerns because Jimmy Butler is such an alpha dog, and if he comes into Philly, you know, and tries to make it his team. That's not going to work. I mean, Joel Embiid is you know, he proudly is the process he is the face of that franchise and he fully intends to remain the face of the franchise and the one thing that. Simmons. Am bead were consistent about and certainly on the same page about was I'm sure he's going to come in here and be willing to fit in. They both said willing to fit in fit in fit in fit in over and over and over again base what they're saying. Hey. We're damn good. You come in and fit in with us. We don't need. We don't need to follow. You. We don't need. We don't need a leader. You know, come on NBA star. On the defensive end, you know, we'll make it work offense. But this Jimmy can't come in there and think he's going to be the man in the face of that franchise because that's not going to work. But I don't think he does think that let's go back to the original problem in Minnesota money people money, and he's going to get paid and they're going to live happily ever after they're going to have to pay him. I think because they of course, I don't how can I I mean. I mean, I guess if it's a disaster they won't, but when they make that to Esther. Like. Because Jimmy Butler is one of the one of the top two way players in the league. I think the only guy that played more minutes last year than him was LeBron he's and by the way concern as well. But it does deal, but but he's not gonna play anywhere near the minutes in Philadelphia that he had to play in either of his last two stops..

"We started off and we've had a tough schedule to start the season into the Golden State game. We played very well until midway through the fourth quarter. And then we had a tough game up in Portland where we were very short handed, and then we had a back to back against the clippers. I thought we played well in that game we play well Laker game.

"Glenn Taylor was the guy who got suspended because of that Joe Smith under the table contract, the guy who approved David calm, the guy who approved taking Ricky Rubio and Johnny Flint over Steph, curry. All that is true. But I feel like Len Taylor actually has the long-term interests of the franchise in mind. Now maybe you don't play. Him, but I do think that you do want to get rid of him faster than typical dose. Yeah, but not playing him. I think all those, but now you gotta deal with the union when you get to something like that, you just saying healthy player. We're just not going to Lao with advocate, or would it turn into life when the next day at that was stuff all Marbury and he was showing courtside at their gains every time they played by the way, Kevin Garnett was on TV yesterday he got that job with TNT, and this is how he thinks of Glenn Taylor at least says the basketball mon-. Let's listen. I think the day he's trying to motivate those guys. Those guys need to get in the room, sit talk, be transparent with one another and discuss things teammates, Matt, but you know, fill them on standing about noise, passionate, but just the way he's doing it, I don't. I'm not feeling that he's dealing with Glenn who doesn't know about basketball. Is that it would a straight phasing. He set it on live television. It didn't flinch after the fact, by the way he was so matter of fact about it as if to indicate that he is many times said, like, wouldn't Taylor doesn't know what he's say when he's not on television.

Do you agree with Chuck? I do not agree with this smiling face behind us, but I don't think it's all of that crazy because of the teams. You mentioned right? Denver. No. Can you see porn to Las Vegas at least are supposed to have more wins than the Lakers where I think Chuck is getting a little off of his rocker here is because of the Spurs, the Spurs lost Oni, parking, lots of John Murray lost to Moore point guards between the Dante, Mary and three and four. Their current point guard wings exactly. They're under like fifth string point guard right now. And yes, they made the playoffs every year since Gregg Popovich is first year and guest Gregg. Popovich is still, but coach, but the Spurs cannot possibly make the playoffs or at least be better than the Lakers this year. Can they three and four Ren Forbes, ready? Go to school. I have no from this country. Like I have. I, I have, no. How are you. One thing I'm guessing about him based on being named Bryn Forbes, I don't know, but I basically agree with you that the idea that Denver could be better than the Lakers is not absurd. Okay. See is another team, whereas kind of a, we'll see what they are being better than legs. Not absurd. That's a lot of faith in pop because I think that's talking about here with the Spurs is Gregg. Popovich Gregg. Popovich will find a way. Basically most of the time that we watch Gregg Popovich find a way he was finding away with Tim Duncan or his finding a way with Tim, Duncan, plus some other combination. A hall of fame.

"We have raking Pablo related news. Pablo Escobar was killed in ninety three apparently four hippopotamuses from apart from his estate.

They, they have incredible levels of speed for watching our goals. They got big guns down there.

But our first name of the day is Jimmy Butler because Mark Stein of the New York Times reports that Jimmy Butler and his agent of told the t. wolves that Miami is Butler preferred trade destination. So should the heat give up whatever it takes to get Jimmy. So question, what is when you say that the timber wolves said this is I mean Glenn Taylor set, you said to Glenn Taylor because I don't know who the timber wolves are at this moment. That's right now Glenn Taylor, right? But if you're Miami, do you do. Whatever it takes. I think you do a lot because I don't think it necessarily takes that much given that they're dealing with the distressed asset in this case, but the mix of Jimmy Butler in his personalities might have ground down Karl Anthony, Townsend Wiggins. Pat Riley is that guy like Pat Reid is looking to Jimmy Butler, like you are a guy in the image that I have of a basketball player. It looks like a great fit. Yes and owner. Glen Taylor is at war seemingly with Tom typical, the head coach and also the president of basketball operations over whether a trade should be made at all. Now we see maybe there's lamentable towards Miami towards somewhere else, but Bo, this is why you don't make your head coach the president of basketball operations. Because if I am Tom Semedo, I understand why do want wanna let them go Anita. Keep my job as a coach that guys good via the GM that's Glenn Taylor somehow has better sensible long-term. See to me the reason that you don't do that is generally the head coach doesn't have time to do all the scouting and stuff. To go through it to make the proper decisions like, that's, that's the big one is right now. The thing would tiptoe on this is why you could ever make him. He's always trying to win everything at all time. No matter. His thing is I want to go back to the playoffs next year. That's not a vision of we can win a championship. He just wants to go back to the playoffs in order to make this happen. You gotta have Jimmy Butler come in, but is Miami going to be able to make this work because I think they probably have to find the third team in order to get this done. But if you're Pat Riley and you can find somebody to get why side off your hands in order to make this happen, Alex cited, are you very, very excited in Woche has been talking about maybe the Phoenix Suns two point guard of the third team cap space wise, Sacramento Kings to have space that Bank if you need a sucker, Sacramento is always the first place always they're all right.

Tom Thibodeau pitches Jimmy Butler on rejoining Timberwolves
"This Jimmy Butler thing is just getting crazier and crazier. You all know by now. Mr. Butler sat down with Tom timid. Oh, Andy, worry. I'm the Timberwolves front office and said, I wanna get traded. And then Tim dove was like, nah, we don't really. Trade you. We're not taking any offers. Now the reports are from, whoa, JR. Check this out till general manager. Scott Layden had been shutting down trade inquiries for Butler in recent days. And Taylor has demanded that late Nali take calls up potential deals, but reach out to initiate conversations. League sources said, this is all really get spicy. Here you need Taylor in that is Glenn Taylor, the owner of the of the temples. So the owner of the timber wolves is now telling his employees that they need to not only take trade requests calls, but to reach out and make initiate trade talks with other teams. What does that tell you about where everyone's heads at in the front office in Minnesota one starts with the owner and it goes back to what I've talked about on this program for months. There clearly was a fracture and you had to pick a side either you on the same team as Jimmy Butler at Tom pivotal who they gave fifty billion dollars to oversee. Basketball operations and the Costa team, or you were on the side of Karl Anthony towns. He ironically signs a supermax deal. As soon as they start talking about Jimmy bullard's being traded, I'm like, he didn't wait to this week like soon as they start talking about trained Jimmy Butler. He was like outside, I'll stay and they already paid as you wings. So that fracture clearly was there.

"Call out. An individual or a college or a pro organization that said or done something flat out ridiculous or stupid. It's just too easy at times to throw those yellow flags as we issue personal fouls. Sell. Because nobody is off limits. Of course. Stupid would be an insult people. This one's just interesting to me. The dysfunction of the Minnesota Timberwolves so evidence. So Tom sibito. According to reports has no interest in trading Jimmy Butler that he go into the season where Jimmy Butler knowing that he may lose with the end of the year. But he's okay with that. Because he thinks he could win. Meanwhile, now, we're hearing that owner Glen Taylor. Has told owners and executives at the NBA's board of governors meeting that in fact, ballers available and that if teams are interested they should call Glenn Taylor himself and not Scott Layden, the general manager or Tom vigneault. Are you kidding me? You're the owner of the team you're going to undermine both the GM and the coach who also happens to be the president of basketball operations. What absolute disconnect between the two sides. That shows you why the Minnesota Timberwolves have had so little success in the MBA since coming in as an expansion team. Although they've had big names over the years. What are your owner does this to your GM and your coach slash president Tabasco operations? What I would say find the GM or Tom vivid? I would say I'm outta here. You're going to undermine me like that to owners and other NBA executives at the board of governors meetings. That's as bad move as you can make because what you've done is. You've stripped me my power saying then the end I don't have the power to make the player personnel decisions. And even if I want Jimmy Butler, you've taken that away from me, and you will trade him over my head. And what are you gonna do? Glenn taylor. Are you going to negotiate the return you go? She ate the young talent to the draft. Picks would come back. What a horrendous franchisee you're seeing. Exactly why Glenn Taylor and the Minnesota Timberwolves you my personal fouls for being as dysfunctional a franchise as we see in sports today. Sean, what an absolute embarrassment that is it's an embarrassment and right now, if you're the owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves, what choice do you have though, but to trade Jimmy Butler? Right. But don't you think? But don't you think that it's a ploy to say we're not interested in trading him right now. I mean, no you wanna play right? Right. Play hardball. According to our port Karl Anthony towns went to management and said, I'm not going to sign an extension with his team until the Jimmy Butler situations resolve meeting, I get him off the tee. Because I don't know if you listen to internet rumors as you talked about yesterday. Supposedly Jimmy Butler slept with Karl Anthony towns his girlfriend, if that's the case, there's no repairing that marriage. You gotta get him out there. You have to get him out of there. But when's the last time you heard an owner say, no, no, if you're not getting anywhere, the GM, come straight home to me. Oh. Right. My personal foul goes to college football Pac twelve and big ten to conferences to power five conferences playing Friday night football. Why why? No one's watching right now. Right. I mean, the the audience for these games has to be very miniscule. Why would you waste top programs like Penn State and USC on a Friday night, and I know US's down, but still why would you waste that on Friday night? I agree. It's it's utterly ridiculous to me that that's what they've done. I mean, those are reserved conference USA mid American conference the mid majors loved to play on Thursdays and Fridays days like that. Especially at USC a power school like that playing Penn State school like that you cannot be doing that. I mean, you own the Saturdays when you have teams like USC, especially out west. And of course, Penn State, which is a national program. You're right. It is a joke to have both those programs playing on a Friday night. When people aren't watching crazy money talks Friday nights four teams like UCF because they want to get exposure, right, right? Undefeated for sixteen straight games. Now, they want to get some exposure and get away from the big dogs on Saturday fine. But for Penn State, the big ten in the pack twelve and USC, I don't get it. Know, that's the thing. You can absolutely get the teams like, you know, you can absolutely get teams like as you said UCF or teams like Boise state. They would love to play as a Friday night game. Because as you said, they get the exposure, they get the prime time. But a Penn State doesn't need that Penn State twelve o'clock or three thirty kickoff type team USC should be the marquee game playing at eight o'clock on ABC or should be playing ten o'clock and ESPN that's the type of. But maybe it tells you about the drop off, right? Maybe that's what you're seeing here. Unbelievable. It is really incredible. You really break it.

"Welcome back for tunnel glenn taylor's got links playing the day and he made a trip to las vegas for the summer games he joins us now glenn good morning reminding my mind said doubt to vegas and what was going on obviously the summer games but are you guys talking to other teams will what was your role out there well my main role was that we had the board met all the owners met and we have out of committee meetings and cetera and and i'm involved in all those so that's where most of my time was but i took the time to go over to watch our team play would you think well i just was happy with what the guys did in the sense that the coach wanted guys that could play defense and be tough out there and i think the guy showed that they can do that jimmy butler situation now you can offer them and then at the end of this year he could play out his option he's got options how do you assess it right now well we made him a max offer you know so that he he would have the ability to sign that that was the most that we could do he said he was appreciated but he wanted to wait till next year because he thought next year as a free agent he might have the opportunity to earn more money okay what about this towel for you think he's you're gonna help them i do you know he played here before so we know him he did really well this last year in shooting threes he's tuffy can play a couple of positions he's very experienced i think coming up off the bench he'll be a real asset to our team i want to go back to butler for just a minute glen does that mean you have to really look harder teeing offers to trade him then to make sure you get some value well i think at this point we're just going to concentrate on getting cats signed and then you know just go forward and see what type of year we have you know and and wait until next year and we'll make our decisions based upon where we're at next year when we come back to butler for second you can pay him more money anybody league a year from now is that right that's correct i mean we're in a situation as far as if money is his driving motivator that we can pay more than anybody else but you need to figure out what the motivator is there right during the season at some point and done well i think so i think you still want us to really improve as a team and we expect that he will be part of that help that we need for the better record and get us into the playoffs other i know this is different but you've dealt with so many different companies over the years there's so many different scenarios with employees how do you get cat in jimmy butler on the same page in is that akin to things that you do on a regular basis and business well i'm not sure that they aren't on the same page i think that you know they both want to win they both want to improve.

"Of it um owner glenn taylor wanted a facetoface meeting before agreeing to it this was not a an automatic no doubt max contract handed to them they had to think a long time about this and i understand why they gave it to him because they knew that if he became a free agent this year somebody else would have easily offered of the same and and they wouldn't have been able to control the the cut that the terms of the deal but this was this was not an automatic max ideally when you take a number one overall pick by the time he gets his fourth season you feel real good about where he's going in and you slap that max contract down of did admit that on july 1st and you and you get it they weren't one hundred percent sure of the andrew wiggins was going mature and take the next step into the star and he's heavy equality season historian as a little bit down because jimmy butler arrived but he is yet to prove that he can be a difference making player on a regular basis and considering that they are paying him to be a difference making bearing a regular basis that is i think worrisome in its m maxed of wiggins the extension brian reminds me of that member back in the late 90s went when the max teams were just handing out max contracting i mean we did with elsa summer of two thousand sixteen when they were hit yeah i think a lot of teams the rain now but it it's like when you when you give him out and you then you have to realize what the consequences are going to be in the will there will be some consequences if if he doesn't live up to upped his performance from it from a contractual stamp which is based on karl anthonytowns this coming summer is extension eligible in than jimmy butler in in two thousand nineteen will be a likely free agent dare so eventually the numbers it's nice when you have all these players.
