Open Thread: The Jimmy Butler debacle has ended…for Minnesota

Martin M Dominguez Spurs News

How Butler and Kawhi Leonard fare in the Eastern Conference will define future trades for dissatisfied All-Stars.

Jimmy Butler won’t have the old Timberwolves to kick around anymore:

In what can most likely be the best for both parties, Jimmy Butler, since making his desire to leave Minnesota abundantly clear, has been traded to Philadelphia.

The Timberwolves have finally unloaded Butler in a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. The City of Brotherly Love will lose Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, and a 2022 second-round draft pick in exchange for the disgruntled prima donna and Justin Patton.

Do you have any feelings on the subject? As fans of a team that saw their superstar force the Spurs’ hand on trading this summer, we have a unique perspective on the situation and vested interest in the outcome. Does Butler being sent to the east say anything?
