Jimmy Butler participated in practice with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday and verbally challenged teammates, coaches and the front office.

Butler was reportedly vociferous and emotional at times in targeting Tom Thibodeau, Scott Layden, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.

"You (bleeping) need me. You can't win without me," Butler reportedly screamed at Layden.

Butler requested a trade before the start of training camp but the Wolves have been unable to find a trade to their satisfaction.
