Despite recent issues, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ swingman Andrew Wiggins sees Jimmy Butler as a concurrent of the team.

Speaking about Butler and his work ethic, the 23-year-old player said, per Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic: “All I know is when we start playing the real games, Jimmy is someone you want on your team”.

On Wednesday, Butler’s return to the team over with the drama – Butler was viciously targeting team’s coach Tom Thibodeau, General Manager Scott Layden and teammates, like Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

As Shams Charania of The Athletic reported, Jimmy Butler will be with the Timberwolves against the Spurs in San Antonio in their season opener on Wednesday.
