After a proposed deal fell apart over the weekend, theA Miami HeatA remain interested in restarting talks with Minnesota to acquire All-Star forwardA Jimmy Butler, league sources told ESPN.

Butler hasn't yet practiced with the Timberwolves this season, but he was with his teammates in the locker room at the team's practice facility on Wednesday morning, league sources said.

There has been hope among the Minnesota front office, coaching staff and some teammates that Butler would rejoin the team, but it remained to be seen what, if anything, Butler would do on the court with the Wolves on Wednesday. At times, Butler has been working out away from the team at the facility since his trade request three weeks ago.

Minnesota and Miami advanced to the brink of a blockbuster trade for All-Star forward Jimmy Butler over the weekend -- only for the deal to fracture before completion, sources said.
