Jimmy Butler called a players-only meeting with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday.

Butler expressed his feelings toward his situation and about management as he continues to remain in limbo after his trade request.

Butler expressed to his teammates that he would complete with them as signs point to him remaining with the Wolves as the regular season begins.

The Wolves canceled practice on Thursday one day after Butler verbally challenged management and teammates during Wednesday's practice.

The Wolves came close to trading Butler to the Miami Heat last week before talks fell apart.
