    That’s doesn’t sound like a very good return for Butler, but it’s good enough for the timber wolves .

    Rockets gonna have to fix their quirks internally. They’ve got the talent and payroll already, now just need to string together some momentum.

    Let's not let this trade overshadow the fact that Sergio Llull is a piece of sh*t

    What better offer? The Sixers gave up two solid starters. Morey wouldnt even offer Tucker or Gordon.

    Saric is actually a very talented player that was on a team that couldn't fully utilize his abilities. Point forward talent

    Was obvious the Wolves preferred a deal to the East than strengthening a WC rival.

    I thought the T-Wolves had better offers from the Heat and Rockets.

    I get everyone here is frustrated the Rockets didn’t get Butler, but this is a good deal for both teams. The 76ers get Butler, and the Wolves get a 27 year old elite 3 and D small forward to replace Butler, and a 24-year-old stretch four that averaged 15 and 7 last year. Neither have bad contracts either.

    It’s a better deal than Josh Richardson and garbage from Miami and anything the Rockets were willing to offer.

    So Saric and Covington is worth 3 first round picks? I'd fire the GM right away what a joke

    Hard not to have a better deal than this pile of garbage. Saric maybe continues to develop into a solid player (he's off to a brutal start this year after having a pretty good year last season), but Covington is owed a lot of money as a role player.

    Yeah, i don't think this is a great deal for the Wolves, Covington plays in Wiggins spot, Saric is good but a weak defender at the 4, imo a terrible fit with Towns but, whatever...
