Butler said he reiterated to players in the meeting that his issues were with management and not his teammates.
Butler confirmed the meeting in a text to ESPN's Rachel Nichols. The news was first reported by The Athletic.
At least one member of the Timberwolves, however, disputed that it was a players-only meeting. Guard Jeff Teague, in his second year with the team, tweeted "it wasn't no players meeting," after the first reports surfaced.
The Timberwolves earlier Thursday canceled practice and media availability. A short practice had been scheduled for noon. No reason was given for the cancellation.
Butler made a dramatic return to the Timberwolves on Wednesday, boldly challenging teammates, coaches and front-office executives in the session. Butler then spoke at length with ESPN's Nichols, discussing his contentious relationship with the team and coaches.
