Jimmy Butler scores 14 points in losing Philadelphia 76ers debut

Robert Covington thanks Sixers Philly

There were reports of Thibodeau's hesitance to deal Butler, even after the All-NBA guard's trade request went public just before training camp. But the Timberwolves lose one of the NBA's most efficient forwards on a team that already ranks 27th in eFG%. "When we get out there and play together, I think it will be a different story and a good one that hopefully ends with a happy ending". The lesser known name of the 76ers recent trade action, Chandler set about a second half tear as he announced himself to the league amid Butler's high-profile debut. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid were already poised to be a powerhouse pairing with the help of Markelle Fultz, but Butler pushes the team over the "stacked" quota.

"My mindset, as soon as I step on the court, is to help my team win", Fultz said. "In the locker room, they loved him. [The trade] was an easy call for me". With that in mind, general manager Elton Brand went out and acquired one of the top scorers in the National Basketball Association in Butler. "Obviously win a championship".

Meanwhile, the other question surrounding the Sixers heading into this game was the status of Markelle Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick from a year ago who was replaced in Philadelphia's starting lineup by Butler.

"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". Butler, for example, touched the ball just 41 times, according to Second Spectrum tracking data - his lowest total of the season and the sixth-most of anyone on the Sixers.

The trade also leaves Philadelphia with an open spot on the 15-man roster.

"But I see tremendous promise, and a tremendous fit from Jimmy into our system". But, to me, we've made really good strides in these 13 days and we're on the right track. This is the most spry the 31-year-old combo forward has looked this season after starting the season on the shelf with a hamstring injury.
