Timberwolves Trade Jimmy Butler To 76ers

Posted November 11, 2018

Embiid also echoed Simmons' thoughts on the acquisition of Butler, saying he hopes the addition of the veteran catapults the Sixers into the NBA Finals.

Former Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler has reportedly been traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for Dario Saric, Robert Covington, and a 2022 second-round pick, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

The Sixers plan for their Big 3 for the foreseeable future to be Butler, Embiid and Simmons.

Mayweather said the weight class and rules for the fight would be discussed "within the next couple of weeks". He recently defeated former UFC fighter Kyoji Horiguchi in a kickboxing fight.

Butler initially requested a trade from the Timberwolves in September after playing just one season with the franchise. Harris and Taylor worked closely with the front offices, including Sixers general manager Elton Brand and Minnesota's Scott Layden and Thibodeau, on executing the trade. The hip-hop veteran has reacted to a major National Basketball Association trade involving the Philadelphia 76ers.

Philadelphia is trading for Butler with the full intention of re-signing him next summer when Butler is a free agent, and there is no way this deal gets done without a wink-and-nod agreement from Butler's team that he would stay.

Butler has averaged 21.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.4 steals through 10 games this season.

Needless to say, NBA Twitter was on fire after news of the trade broke.

However, negotiations can not commence until Butler opts out of the final year of his current deal.

When asked about the arrival of Butler ahead of tonight's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Simmons said he "can't wait" to play with the four-time All-Star.
