Stephen A. Smith Goes Berserk Reacting To Jimmy Butler Trade To 76ers”

The deal comes after Butler turned down a four-year, $110 million extension from the Timberwolves during the offseason and was not moved after the Rockets reportedly offered four first-round picks to acquire him.

The tumultuous tenure of Jimmy Butler on the Minnesota Timberwolves came to a close Saturday as The Athletic's Shams Charania reported the All-Star is heading to the Philadelphia 76ers. Embiid and Simmons have been the established stars on this team, but Butler tends to dominate franchises so it will be interesting to see how they feel taking a back seat to Butler.
