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

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.

The Timberwolves are sending Butler and Justin Patton to the 76ers. Now, it seems his wish has been granted as he was traded to the 76ers. 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. ESPN reports that Butler and the Sixers are expect to reach a deal on a long-term contract this summer.

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

Ben Simmons is getting another All-Star to help his Philadelphia 76ers launch a serious strike on the National Basketball Association championship.

ESPN later reported that the Wolves would be receiving a pair of players, Robert Covington and Dario Saric from Philadelphia in return. In his previous seven seasons, Butler has only played more than 70 games twice.

Butler, who turned 29 on September 14, has been an All-Star in each of the last four seasons.
