"We think they fit well with the guys that we do have", said president of basketball operations and coach Tom Thibodeau. Butler has had just two days to learn Philadelphia's system, but it would be hard to believe that the Sixers wouldn't come away with at least a six-point victory.

Markelle Fultz of the Sixers is moving back to a reserve role following the trade for Jimmy Butler. There doesn't, however, seem to be a unanimous answer to what "best" entails. Thibodeau, though, attempted to convince Butler to stick around and things went downhill from there until the Wolves had no choice but to trade him to Philadelphia on Saturday for forwards Robert Covington and Dario Saric, guard Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round draft pick. "We think we have a good, young nucleus, and we have to build off of that", Thibodeau said.

The Sixers will now be hoping Butler makes plenty of winning plays for them. The pick part was important.

"It was what does it mean for the team?"

Butler says that, despite the amount of attention that's been given to what his next move would be, his focus never wavered. Miami had one of the most promising offers before Houston offered four first-round picks for Butler's services. "I think I'm an incredible human being, teammate, and I will show that to the guys here". If you think you can do something, you really can. Butler then attempted to dismiss that there were problems in Minnesota. During Butler's tenure, Minnesota was 61-44.

Since the start of the 2014-15 season, Butler, 29, has averaged 21.8 points a game.

Only time will tell how the Butler-76ers relationship will pan out. If he goes somewhere else, I don't know what that looks like.

"If you get two rotational players, that's good", he said. "We knew there was risk involved with it".

"When you bring in a four-time All-Star like Jimmy Butler, there's going to be ripple effects on the entire roster", Brand said. "So once we got through the initial phase, we knew we had to be patient until the offers improved".

"My mindset, as soon as I step on the court, is to help my team win", Fultz said.

"We can't wait to get on the court, put on that jersey and put it on for this city", Covington said at a news conference inside Target Center on Tuesday afternoon that carried just a bit less buzz than Butler's open-to-the-public introduction at the Mall of America less than 17 months ago.
