Timberwolves Trade Jimmy Butler To 76ers

The 76ers Trade for Jimmy Butler; Now Serious Threats to Win the East

Sources say the NBA All-Star has been traded to the Philadelphia Sixers.

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 Westgate Las Vegas Superbook installed the Sixers as 16-1 shots for the crown, down from 30-1.

The Wizards have started the season 2-9 and now have the worst defense in the National Basketball Association.

The Wizards most likely would have had to include small forward Otto Porter in any trade for Butler.

Today is a bad day for the Celtics, Raptors, and Bucks.

76ers coach Brett Brown talked before the season about the team shopping for a third superstar and they will get that with Butler.

Embiid and Butler are two of the better trash-talkers in the league, and now together on the same team, they will be able to do some serious damage when it comes to talking trash.

The 76ers will send key members Robert Covington and Dario Saric to Minnesota in the deal.

Just before the trade, Butler played down his rift with Karl-Anthony Towns and the trade speculation that has hovered over the Timberwolves since the start of training camp, telling The Athletic: "I don't focus on it".

Philadelphia and Butler both "fully expect" to reach a long-term deal next summer as well, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
