NBA Twitter explodes as Jimmy Butler heads to Philadelphia

Jimmy Butler is finally on the move. "I don't care what anybody says, any media outlet, anybody says as a person, the one thing they can't say is that I don't want to win". "We're excited to get Jimmy in here".

Butler told the Timberwolves in September he wanted to be traded, and it took weeks for the team to find a deal it would accept. Butler averaged 21.3 points in 10 games for Minnesota this season. The 76ers are shipping Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, Robert Covington and a 2022 2nd round pick in exchange.

We'll have time to debate whether or not the haul received from the 76ers is superior to the rumored trade with the Heat that was agreed on in principle but ultimately nixed when the Wolves asked for more assets at the eleventh hour.

The 76ers are now 3rd in the Eastern Conference standings with 8 wins and 5 defeats.


Ben Simmons #25 of the Philadelphia 76ers and Joel Embiid #21 react after a dunk by Embiid in the fourth quarter against the LA Clippers at the Wells Fargo Center on November 1, 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Sun-Times was the first to report last summer that Butler was unhappy in Minnesota after growing frustrated with the nonchalant attitudes of younger teammates - specifically Karl-Anthony Towns. The deal has been finalized by both sides and will have a trade call with the National Basketball Association on Monday, according to Charania. "I know how to play, wherever you want me on the floor".

Simmons anticipates that the Sixers' big three would develop chemistry based on a common bond.
