NBA Commissioner Adam Silver believes the Minnesota Timberwolves and Jimmy Butler must sort out their differences in the wake of their recent drama.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, Silver said Butler and the T-Wolves “gotta work it out.”

“I think that Jimmy is obviously a fantastic player. The Timberwolves had a great season last year,” Silver added. ”… He’s got one year left on his contract and I know Jimmy, that if they don’t end up doing the right deal for him [to trade him away], he’s gonna play hard and he’s gonna stay this year.”
