Jimmy Butler Trade Between Heat and Wolves Collapsed Because of $5 Million

And I think it will. There's more than one way to get the ball.

Butler is expected to make his debut with his new team on Wednesday in Orlando (7 ET, NBA League Pass).

"Not too many things go through my mind when I'm out here between these lines".

The Sixers lost two of their best shooters in the Jimmy Butler trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves, so the team is still interested in acquiring sharpshooter Kyle Korver from the Cavs, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

On Tuesday, Saric said he was excited to play with new teammates like Karl-Anthony Towns. Butler then attempted to dismiss that there were problems in Minnesota. That's why we play, why they play.

"And they're both young, they're going to get better and both are very good defensively, they both shoot the 3, so we think they fit well with the guys we do have", Thibodeau said.

"If I was trying to recoup everything that Tom Thibodeau gave up to get his beloved Butler - Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the first-round draft pick that became Lauri Markkanen - I would have preferred what the Heat offered last month", stated Stein in response to a question he received from a fan via email.

In the case of Fultz, his shooting issues, including his double-clutch free throw Monday night in Miami, make moving him to the bench in favor of Redick, one of the NBA's elite shooters, an easy call.

So, instead, the Sixers went all-in on Butler now, adding one of the league's elite two-way wing players to a roster already featuring one of its best point guards in Simmons and one of its best centers in Embiid.

"In the locker room, they loved him", Brand said.

The problem for Minnesota is that they play in one of the toughest divisions in the National Basketball Association and would have to navigate through a gauntlet of talented teams to win the West.

"I'm not looking, I'm listening and [general manager Andy Elisburg] and I are ... we've been doing this all the time".

Brand said he spoke to several of Butler's former teammates and came away more than satisfied. If you know me, if you're around me, you know my heart. "On the court, he's demanding and he wants to win".
