Butler, who is averaging 21.3 points per game in 10 starts, was part of a deal that included center Justin Patton for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless and a second-round pick.

"I already got enough money to have me and my family set for the rest of my life". I love to compete.

"They have a couple of guys here who are really awesome", he said.

Marc Stein of the New York Times, in his National Basketball Association newsletter, posited that the Sixers "remain highly interested" in Cleveland Cavaliers sharpshooter Kyle Korver, which makes plenty of sense. "I think I'm great at sharing the ball, moving without the ball", he said. We're just going to have to make that up. The 76ers would be able to offer Butler a five-year max contract worth $190 million, while other teams could offer four years and a projected $141 million. "For the most part, that's why I don't worry too much about what everybody says".

Butler's first basket came just over two minutes into the game, when he took a pass from Embiid on the left wing, cut to the basket and finished an acrobatic layup. They are the key pieces of the deal, and both will step into prominent roles as the Timberwolves try to turn around a slow start and remain competitive.

"I mean, I don't know how I can keep saying it".

A year apart, some country music fans face 2 mass shootings
Nicholas Champion, who was in the Borderline Bar, told CBS News he and his friends attended the country music festival past year . But he was killed one year later in another mass shooting in his hometown of Thousand Oaks, California.

Butler says that, despite the amount of attention that's been given to what his next move would be, his focus never wavered. "In this league, I think 90 percent of it is mental". 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.

"We hope he sees a fit here".

"I've been seeing him work this summer, all this season, and he has times this season when something like [an unconventional missed shot] happens", Brand said. "Obviously, we felt when we had the opportunity to get him that we had to take advantage of that".

It looked like he had Philadelphia in position to win twice - first when he hit Mike Muscala for a 3-pointer with 3:33 remaining to make it 104-100 in favor of the Sixers, and then again when he found Joel Embiid wide open on the left wing for a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:20 remaining.

That's still a ways down the road.
