76ers acquire Jimmy Butler in trade with Timberwolves

The 76ers Trade for Jimmy Butler; Now Serious Threats to Win the East

The 76ers Trade for Jimmy Butler; Now Serious Threats to Win the East

Jimmy Butler finally got his wish.

And don't think there was going to be a breaking National Basketball Association story without Adrian Wojnarowski chipping in some promising info for 76ers fans, reporting they fully expect to sign Butler to an extension this offseason. The Marquette product is a four-time All-Star, two-time All-NBA selection and four-time All-Defensive Team selection. He was traded to the Timberwolves before last season. After weeks upon weeks of one of the weirdest trade sagas in recent National Basketball Association memory, the Minnesota Timberwolves chose to send Butler back to the Eastern Conference.

Trump had central role in hush money payments to women
Neither the White House nor Rudy Giuliani, Trump's lawyer, immediately responded to a request for comment from Business Insider. Cohen told prosecutors that as Trump discussed the payment to Daniels, he told him, "Get it done", the newspaper reported .

Charania is reporting that the Sixers and Timberwolves will have a trade call on Monday to finalize the deal. The Sixers will weigh Butler's physical condition and how he fits with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, but they didn't give up such significant assets believing that this would be a rental situation.

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. Though, there were mixed reports on whether Butler is receptive to playing alongside James.
