It will get damn ugly the closer it gets to the trade deadline. At that point Butler will need to go full blown crazy and urinate at center court to force his way out.
He isn't going to let himself get pushed into a Wolves only Max situation.
If he goes bat shit crazy again, that is all he will accomplish. His antics when he finally showed up for practice killed trade talks with everyone. There is literally nobody at this point who wants to trade for him, let alone give him a max deal. That could change if he keeps his mouth shut and produces. I have every confidence he will play hard and produce, but I wouldn't hold my breath on the other part of it.
My guess is the bolded is not completely true. He is too good to go unwanted. Now, what they offer may be a different story initially, but I bet the Wolves eventually get a decent return when (not if) he is traded.
I'm not saying talks were killed for ever, but the talks with Miami fell apart completely after he pulled his stunt. There is absolutely zero steam of anyone talking with the Wolves right now. Miami was one of the few teams that was willing to redo his contract right away. The fact that he destroyed two locker rooms before his practice antics was already commented on by "anonymous GMs" around the league. In order for the Wolves to move him for anything reasonable, Butler has to put on an uncharacteristic display of good behavior.
If I'm funny the same way Matt is needy, I should be doing stand up
