Thibs, on the impact Jimmy Butler's acquisition has had on getting other players to play in Minnesota. "I think it's critical. I think anytime you can add an elite player to your team most players are aware. When they're looking around, when they become free agents, they're going to look at the first part is obviously the financial part. And then the second part is going to be who are they playing with and how do they fit into the group? And I think when you add in a guy like Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, I think it makes it that more attractive. And of course Jimmy has relationships with a lot of guys in the league because of his experience in All-Star Games, with Team USA, so that all factors into it.''
