Jimmy Butler set for Philadelphia 76ers debut; Markelle Fultz in reserve role

Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau, who also coached Butler while he was in Chicago, talked about the trade and the players they got in return. "If I need the ball, I'll go steal it, go the other end and lay it up".

On the other hand, Butler puts the Sixers (on paper) in the same tier as Boston, Toronto and Milwaukee. He said nothing changes for him, whether he's starting or playing in a reserve role. If you know me, if you're around me, you know my heart.

Critics, often citing anonymous sources, called Butler a disruptive presence on a team. I don't think there's too many of them that'll tell you that I'm a bad teammate, but people get whatever they want to say out. "Every time I step on the court, every time I go in the game, my goal is to be a great teammate and help my team get the W". "Then all a sudden he'll come back and he'll take rise-up, fadeaway jump shots and look like a real sort of fluid type of player, real fluid type of motion in his shot". Butler doesn't know the team's terminology.

On Tuesday, Saric said he was excited to play with new teammates like Karl-Anthony Towns.

Adding Redick to the starting lineup gives the Sixers some spacing for Ben Simmons, who has seen teams play him differently this season, but with Butler in the mix, it takes some of the scoring pressure of Simmons and allows him to find the open guys and set up better offensive sets. "For the most part, that's why I don't worry too much about what everybody says". "Not one game, but what we can do overall, or just the improvement".

The 29-year-old Butler has averaged 21.8 points a game since the start of the 2014-15 season, the 13th-highest clip in the National Basketball Association over that span. The ball just happened to slip.

"But today, it's about picking the things in close-game situations and saying, 'This is what we're looking for.' In that environment, he picks things up quickly".

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

Throughout the prolonged end to Butler's time in Minnesota - from when he made his trade request to when he was finally dealt east - Thibodeau has publicly maintained that he would do what would yield the best payoff for the organization.
