Butler to Sixers

Jimmy Butler has reportedly been traded to the Sixers for Saric, Covington, and a second round pick. If this is the cost, it is a steal for the Sixers. Butler is also apparently willing to resign with the Sixers. While he is not a perfect fit (the Sixers could use more shooting), a talent like him is worth the cost.

I'm a Sixers fan, and I am

I'm a Sixers fan, and I am worried about this.

Jimmy is particularly tough on young players and in the locker room. How is he going to be with Simmons and Fultz?
Additionally, Jimmy needs the ball in his hands, and so does Simmons.
What's the new lineup? Simmons, Fultz, Butler, Embiid and...Chandler? Muscala?

I'd love to see JJ back in the starting lineup, but I think it'd be hard to build an offense on the fly around essentially four guards and Embiid. But it'd be interesting to watch.

I think the Locker room will be fine b/c Embiid is a competetive

Beast & Simmons is intense too so that should work just fine & Butler is actually a perfect fit b/c Simmons is just not a threat to score from the perimeter in crunch time in the 1/2 court

So late in games Butler & Embiid can take over & become a devestating inside outside combo -

It's really perfect for Simmons b.c he is a great player who affects the game in So many ways rebounding, passing, in transition & he an incredible perimeter defender for a man that size but he is terrified to even touch the ball late b/c he does not want to go to the free throw line

Hopefully the coach ends this ridiculous Fultz at 2 guard experiment - lets Fultz run the 2nd Unit & puts JJ Reddick back as the sarting 2 w/ Butler & Simmons at the Wing & PG & I guess they put Muscala or Chandler at PF & they'll have a decent bench

But what would burn my @ss if I was a Phila fan was just how Badly Colangelo screwed you up in the Draft --- He could have had Butler at the 2017 Draft for the #3 pick & u Still have Covington, Saric & the 2019 Kings pick but that's Not all - w/ 3 late 1st round picks Hinkie left this idiot in 2016 & 17 Colangelo drafts Euro trash Luwawu, Korkmaz & Pasecniks when just a couple picks later Pascal Siakam, Malcolm Brogden & Kyle Kuzma were available

I've always heard from Phila fans that Colangelo was forced on Phila by Adam Silver to force Hinkie Out & ruin what Hinkie built ---- well Got Dayum u can Not do Much worse than That in Only 2 Drafts!
