Minnesota Timberwolves trade Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia 76ers

Both Jimmy Butler and the Wolves front office have been heavily-scrutinized for the way they are handling their differences regarding the former's demand to be traded. "We're excited to get Jimmy in here". The 76ers are shipping Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, Robert Covington and a 2022 2nd round pick in exchange.

The Philadelphia 76ers have struck a blockbuster deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves to trade for all-star swingman Jimmy Butler, according to multiple reports Saturday afternoon. But he expects Butler to elevate Philadelphia in the East pecking order. While Joel Embiid has been a beast, Ben Simmons has plateaued to start the season, Markelle Fultz is still figuring a lot of things out, and the Sixers have just looked pedestrian.

There was frivolity all around him at the farm-to-fork restaurant and bar known as "The Grange", dozens of patrons who had long since clocked out and were enjoying their cocktails as last call came.

Un suspect a été interpellé près d'un véhicule en feu, selon la police. " Nous ne cherchons personne d'autre pour le moment ". Mais l'attaque se poursuit et au bout d'un moment, un policier fait usage de son arme et tire dans la poitrine du suspect.

At the time of identifying his preferred trade destinations, Butler reportedly did not include the Lakers on the list.

Simmons acknowledged that the 76ers would go through an adjustment period after adding Butler - "Hopefully, it's quicker than expected" - but he downplayed concerns about meshing with another ball-dominant player.

Meanwhile, Butler was forced to begin the season still a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves as Tom Thiodeau refused to trade his star. "He's going to fit in with us".
