Unpack the locker room side of it for me. I mean a coup…

Unpack the locker room side of it for me. I mean a couple months ago, he was trying to storm into your locker room and now he’s part of it (After a Dec. 4 game in New Orleans in which Durant and Cousins were both ejected, Cousins had to be held back by security after attempting to enter the Warriors’ locker room). But it sounds like you green-lighted this right away? Stephen Curry: Oh, for sure. We like those challenges. I guess you’d call it ‘The Revival,’ I guess, in the sense that that’s where a guy’s reputation is around the league. But at the end of the day, I’ve played with DeMarcus in Team USA stuff (during their time together competing in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, Cousins jokingly referred to himself as ‘the third Splash Brother’). I’ve played against him. We’ve had run-ins, the teams had run-ins. …But it’s going to be fun.

Jimmy Butler trade coming quickly?

Against the displeasure of Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations and coach Tom Thibodeau, owner Glen Taylor has mandated that a deal needs to be negotiated to trade disgruntled All-Star forward Jimmy Butler in the next several days, league sources told ESPN. Butler has likely worn the Timberwolves uniform for the final time, because Taylor has no interest in bringing Butler into the team’s training camp and threatening a bigger circus than already exists within the franchise.

They wanted direction on how to proceed with Butler, and Taylor told them: Butler is available in trade talks, and I want it done sooner than later, sources said. “The owner’s trading him,” one Board of Governors source told ESPN. “That was made clear. It’s just a matter of when.” “He basically said, ‘If you don’t get anywhere with [Layden], and you’ve got something good, bring it to me,” another high-ranking league official told ESPN.
