Philadelphia 76ers roundtable: Thoughts on the Jimmy Butler trade

Philadelphia 76ers roundtable: Thoughts on the Jimmy Butler trade

"I was always just focused on hoops", Butler said after the Sixers finished up morning shootaround at a suburban Orlando high school. The 6-foot-9 Covington was an All-Defensive First Team pick last season with a career-most 315 deflections and a defensive rating of 99.0 that led all forwards in the league with at least 30 minutes per game. Adding Butler to the mix expedites the process, giving Brett Brown a legitimate "big three' to work with".

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

Jimmy Butler was finally traded from the Minnesota Timberwolves this past week, and he landed on the Philadelphia 76ers.

"Just being around the guys, getting to know them a little bit, and being hella confused by some plays", Butler said of what he got out of shootaround. You never hear a player say it and I think if a player had a problem with anything that they would (say something). "It was important to us to go get a superstar, to go get some young talent to help make that next step in achieving a championship". "I think I'm great at shooting the ball, moving without the ball".

"I have known Jimmy a long time", Thibodeau said.

As Butler formally joined the 76ers, the Wolves pivoted forward after a pressure-relieving win over Brooklyn on Monday night following an 0-5 road trip. He joins rookie of the year Ben Simmons and All-Star Joel Embiid to form a trio of offensive talent.

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. "Why they did what they did", Butler said when asked about his goal this season. If you know me, if you're around me, you know my heart. Thibodeau, who coached Butler with the Bulls prior to their time together with the Timberwolves, dodged questions asking him to characterize his relationship since Butler made his exit. "I just look to compete and make winning plays".

"I love my teammates". On the court, he's demanding and he wanted to win and he pushed me to be better, ' is what I was hearing. I love to show I can help a team win, that I'm one of the really good players in the league.
