76ers GM ‘Nervous’ About Jimmy Butler Trade, Knows It’s ‘Big Risk’

Share

After close to two months of speculation about his future destination, Philadelphia 76ers guard Jimmy Butler played his first game for his new team on the road against the Magic on Wednesday night. "I still wish them the best". He continued onto claim that he isn't about drama and that he's a genuinely good guy. If any of them needs my help, I'm always (going to try) to help them to the best of my ability.

Unfortunately for Riley and the Heat, the makeup of the roster and the contracts accompanying these players means it's going to take some serious creativity on the part of the Heat front office to get a worthwhile deal done. Adding Butler to the mix expedites the process, giving Brett Brown a legitimate "big three' to work with". He's been the backup center to Karl-Anthony Towns (for what that's worth) and he could be a useful player, but it's clear Tom Thibodeau has little use for Dieng. After one season in Minnesota, he told the Timberwolves just before training camp that he wanted a change of scenery.

The team traded Butler, who had made his desire to get out of Minnesota well known, and Justin Patton in exchange for Covington, Saric, Bayless and a 2022 second-round pick. He joins rookie of the year Ben Simmons and All-Star Joel Embiid to form a trio of offensive talent. "I think I'm great at shooting the ball, moving without the ball".

"They're both young, and they're going to get better. I'll leave it at that".

"We have to play at least 10 games and then we would see which teams were meeting their goals, which teams weren't and the teams that weren't we thought we would have a better chance to negotiate", Taylor said. On the court, he's demanding, he wants to win. "[The trade] was an easy call for me".

Butler also defended his character, only days after attempting to sabotage the Wolves as much as he possibly could.

"You really wouldn't know who I am unless you're around me every day", Butler said.

"I love my teammates".

"I don't think that's a problem", he said of sharing the ball. "I think I'm an incredible human being, teammate, and I will show that to the guys here".

"That's above any and everything". Both Brand and Brown have stated the Sixers' goal of winning an National Basketball Association championship on multiple occasions.
