LOOK: Jeff Teague’s Deleted Instagram Post After Jimmy Butler Drama

It didn’t take long for Jimmy Butler to create major drama at Minnesota Timberwolves practice Wednesday, and it’s grabbed plenty of headlines. But shortly after the situation unfolded, Timberwolves guard Jeff Teague took to social media and made a cryptic post on Instagram.
*NOTE: Teague deleted the post, but fortunately, Rob Perez of The Action Network posted the following screenshot of it:

Good luck attempting to figure out what that group of emojis means. But if anyone has any idea and wants to toss it my way, feel free.
It could potentially mean … ten against one? Who knows. The situation took a very uncomfortable turn on Wednesday when Butler opted to show up at Timberwolves practice and create a massive scene.

Jimmy Butler Drama at Practice
As ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski revealed, Butler’s return to practice was filled with all kinds of excitement. This included “boldly challenging teammates, coaches and front office executives.”
Just one portion which certainly stood out was Butler telling Timberwolves general manager Scott Layden “You f—ing need me, Scott. You can’t win without me.”
This all comes after Butler had requested a trade nearly a month ago, yet Minnesota doesn’t seem all that close to having one done. With the NBA regular season set to begin next week, it’s apparent the All-Star guard is frustrated with the situation and lack of progress on a deal. Time will tell, but as things stand, Butler is still a member of the Timberwolves, and that’s probably not a good thing.

LOOK: Timberwolves G Jeff Teague Calls Out Shams Charania on Twitter

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jeff Teague has no time for fake news, and he made that known on Thursday. After The Athletic’s Shams Charania broke the news Minnesota held a players-only meeting, Teague took to Twitter to shut that rumor down.

@ShamsCharania it wasn’t no players meeting you just made that up bro y’all gotta relax with this fake news

Here’s a look at Charania’s original report on the topic, which points to Jimmy Butler calling the players-only meeting.

Timberwolves All-Star Jimmy Butler called a players-only meeting today, airing his feelings toward situation and management, per league sources. Butler expressed to players he would compete with them, as signs pointing to him staying with the franchise into the regular season.

It’s certainly interesting, and it’s also not the first time (in the past two days) we’ve seen Teague seemingly throw some shade on social media. After the news Wednesday of a blowup from Butler at Timberwolves practice, Teague posted a cryptic message on Instagram, which he later deleted.
Fortunately, Rob Perez of The Action Network posted the following screenshot of it:

It seems the reason for the meeting (whether it was players-only or not) did indeed have to do with Butler addressing playing with the team. The Timberwolves have been unable (or unwilling) to get a deal done, even when one is reportedly close to the finish line.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski detailed the drama at Minnesota’s practice Wednesday, in which Butler “boldly challenging teammates, coaches and front office executives.” Wojnarowski also revealed the All-Star guard told Timberwolves general manager Scott Layden “You f—ing need me, Scott. You can’t win without me.”
To make matters worse, it seems the Timberwolves were nearing a deal which would have sent Butler to the Miami Heat before things fell apart. As Wojnarowski revealed, this happened due to the team asking for more than the originally agreed-upon trade late in the process.
