What's going on with the Timberwolves?

The big topic in Minnesota sports this week is the Timberwolves — namely, what's been happening off the court since star Jimmy Butler said he wants to be traded by the team.

Butler showed up for practice on Wednesday, but on Thursday, the team canceled practice — just a day before their final preseason game in Milwaukee.

MPR News host Cathy Wurzer checked in with Howard Sinker for the latest. Sinker is a digital sports editor for the Star Tribune.
