  • Fantasy Basketball: Fallout from the huge Jimmy Butler trade

    What will Jimmy Butler be on the 76ers? Week 5 of the fantasy basketball season kicked off with a busy Monday slate that featured the Clippers taking down the Warriors, the Kings topping the Spurs, and the shorthanded Sixers holding on to beat the Heat. The Timberwolves shipped Jimmy Butler out to Philadelphia for a package centered around Dario Saric and Robert Covington.

  • Report: Sixers, in need of shooting, interested in Kyle Korver trade

    Trading for Jimmy Butler was the right move for Philadelphia, an all-in kind of play that ends the slow-play “process” and pushes championship dreams to the forefront. It’s also risky — Butler has some Thibodeau-miles on his body, making the need to win sooner rather than later more urgent. It also comes with the problem that while the core three are elite, this team doesn’t have the depth and shooting to compete with Boston or Toronto (or maybe Milwaukee) right now, especially after having to trade Robert Covington and Dario Saric to get Butler.

  • Thibodeau discusses Butler trade: We thought this was the best deal for us

    The Minnesota Timberwolves received multiple "good" offers for Jimmy Butler, according to coach Tom Thibodeau. Minnesota traded the 29-year-old star forward to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for a package centred around Dario Saric and Robert Covington. Thibodeau, the Timberwolves coach and president of basketball operations, discussed the deal for the first time with reporters on Monday.

  • The Jimmy Butler Trade Brings Mix of Tension and Opportunity to 76ers

    Minnesota, having agreed to grant Jimmy Butler the trade he’s wanted for months, is finally free of its self-imposed purgatory. Philadelphia proved eager to help—so eager, in fact, as to give up two core players for Butler and all the baggage he brings with him. No one would soon confuse Dario Saric or Robert Covington for a star of Butler’s caliber.

  • Jimmy Butler trade is what The Process was all about

    Then, during his end-of-the-season news conference, Brown said he feels like "another high-level free agent is required." The summer came and went and the Sixers didn't land LeBron James or Kawhi Leonard. The Sixers on Saturday afternoon finally landed that elusive third star by agreeing to acquire Jimmy Butler from Minnesota, league sources confirmed to NBC Sports Philadelphia. Dario Saric and Robert Covington are fine NBA players.
