Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Jimmy Butler said he’s “cool” with Karl-Anthony Towns despite rumors of issues between the teammates and noted he won’t let his lingering trade request impact his play during the 2018-19 NBA season.
On Saturday, Sam Amick of The Athletic provided comments from Butler, who said he is trying to play well until the trade situation is settled.
“Like I said, I don’t focus on it. I really don’t,” he said. “If it happens, if something happens, something happens. If it don’t, I’ve still got to go out there and prove that I can hang with the best of them. That’s what I do every time I take the floor. I dap somebody up, and it’s like, ‘Yo, let’s battle tonight.'”
Butler also expounded on his relationship with Towns: “Me and KAT are cool. I ain’t got a problem with KAT. Don’t nobody got a problem with nobody, I’m telling you. Everything ain’t what it seems.”
