Rose drops fitty on the Jazz, as Buckets sits and pouts.

So when are the 76ers going to send Saric and Fultz to Minny for Jimmie?

Yeah, I like the trade. I don't see the SIxers making this move if Simmons and Embiid weren't on board with it, and I think those two guys are much better equipped to handle Butler than KT ever was. Sixers need that killer instinct late in games, and a guy who can really defend late in games, and Butler could be that. Trade was good in that the Sixers didn't give up anything that can't be replaced - I've never cared for Covington, always thought his defense was overrated and he wasn't a clutch shooter, and while I like Saric, his game is replaceable now with what we have with Chandler. Butler gives them a third potential stud player - that's something worth trading for.

Bulls fans were glad to get rid of Butler, now the Timberwolves fans are glad to get rid of Butler. Hey, maybe he found a place where he can be happy without being a drama queen.

If Embiid and Simmons can't (heck, throw JJ in there too) can't handle him then he's not destined to be happy anywhere. I find it hard not liking being a Sixer at this point - playing alongside a budding MVP in Embiid, a do everything but shoot from 10ft out in Simmons, a sniper like JJ, a bunch of role players, and a great basketball environment - and they apparently have one helluva practice facility now. It's as good as it gets, or very close to it, in the NBA. If he can't enjoy this then his therapist will have plenty to work with.

Timberwolves are now a half game out of the playoff top 8. They'll have to prove themselves against San Antonio, Boston and Houston this week.
