Minnesota has traded Jimmy Butler to the Sixers for Robert Covington and Dario Saric. Curious what your thoughts are Slim, seems like Philly gave up a lot, if Jimmy resigns there then it's a good trade, but if not they gave up two quality players for a one year rental, I really like Saric, I think all things considered the Wolves did very well especially since everyone knew they had to make a move.

You’re correct in if he resigns it’s a good deal.

It’s expected he signs but I don’t trust anything until it’s done.

Embiid. Simmons. Butler is a nasty combo.

Sixers will miss Cov wing D but it’s hard to turn down the upside here.

If Butler comes in with the same bullshit diva attitude he has had this year, Sixers are fucked.

Dario needs to commit to the NBA. To much going on during the off season back in his country and roco to inconsistent and D is over rated. Is on the ball D stinks however he has very long arms and gets a lot of deflections and steals which therefore in many eyes makes him a top defender in the NBA. I down right love the trade and butler will resign here

Woj is reporting Butler wants to be there long term, but like you say, anything can happen. I wouldn't worry about any attitude problems with him, he was unhappy in Minnesota because guys like Wiggins and Towns don't play hard all the time and have questionable work ethics, Butler has always been a guy who practices hard and plays hard, he's all business, he just couldn't mesh with those guys.

For whatever reason Saric was struggling this year, but he's a player I really like, he can score inside or shoot it from deep, and I'm higher on Covington than you are, I think he's a perfect three and D guy. Granted I don't follow the Sixers so I'm not an expert on him, but the guy made the NBA All-defensive first team this past year, you don't accomplish that without being a great defender.

Melo... what a bum....

Didn't take long for Rockets to figure this out....

Looks like he might get cut....

I feel bad for the fans of any team that brings him in.....
