Jimmy Butler says he'll fit in easily with Philadelphia 76ers

Jimmy Butler Meets, Embraces Sixers GM Elton Brand At Minneapolis Airport

"I was always just focused on hoops", Butler said after the Sixers finished up morning shootaround at a suburban Orlando high school.

"We have a championship window, and it's important that we do whatever it takes to capitalize on it", Brand said.

The Heat went 1-3 on this four-game homestand and has dropped six of its last eight games.

That's the area where he'll help the Timberwolves the most, the area that Butler was also acquired to help improve. He was limited to just 14 regular-season games last season because of the ailment, which confounded the Sixers.

Andrew Bynum was acquired by the 76ers in a multi-team trade on August 10, 2012. Butler pushed back on that assertion Tuesday, pointing out that no player has ever said publicly that he has an issue with the 29-year-old. "It's not about the money", said Butler, who is expected to appear in his first Sixers game on Wednesday, when they face the Magic in Orlando.

The fallout in the time since raised questions about whether Butler is a good teammate.

Sixers general manager Elton Brand said the club's trade for Jimmy Butler is not an indication that Philadelphia has lost faith in Markelle Fultz, the No. 1 overall draft pick from 2017. "But I'm not really anxious about it". If you know me, if you're around me, you know my heart.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor admits his team struggled on the court amid Jimmy Butler's trade request, though the players publicly said they wouldn't let his situation affect their play. You know how I go about what I go about.

"I love basketball", he said. "I think I'm an incredible human being, teammate, and I will show that to the guys here". Never mind a report from The Athletic that Butler chose to sit indefinitely after the Kings game Friday.

"We hope he sees a fit here".

As Butler formally joined the 76ers, the Wolves pivoted forward after a pressure-relieving win over Brooklyn on Monday night following an 0-5 road trip. Brand saw the shot but wasn't overly concerned by it. "I just look to compete and make winning plays". Even though it's going to be a process in and of itself since there will be an initial period of trial and error, here are three things to watch as Butler steps on the Amway Center court come 7:00 p.m. Wednesday evening.
