"I mean, the ball slipped out of my hand, so I had to do what I had to do", Fultz told reporters, per ESPN.com. Miami had one of the most promising offers before Houston offered four first-round picks for Butler's services.

Butler is expected to make his debut with his new team on Wednesday in Orlando (7 ET, NBA League Pass). "But I'm not really anxious about it".

However, Stein went on to say that the deal involving Butler could actually hamper the Sixers in an attempt to add Korver to the mix, as the best apparent salary fodder for a deal ($8.6 million in the form of Jerryd Bayless) was sent to Minnesota.

Butler didn't like the fact the Wolves weren't willing to tear up their roster to give him a massive contract over the summer - although he continues to say his main motivation isn't money - and he didn't like the fact he felt Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins failed to have the same fire to win that he does. "Obviously, getting good players was a priority".

Butler talked about when they get out there and play together and how it'll hopefully be a good story. "Every time I step on the court, every time I go in the game, my goal is to be a great teammate and help my team get the W".

Meanwhile, Simbu has also released a statement saying his movie Vandha Rajavathan Varuven will try its best to make it for Pongal. Trisha and Simran are the female leads in the flick, which has Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui essaying important roles.

It's a disappointing move that had to be made with Fultz, who is scoring just 9.0 point per game, and dishing out 3.5 assits on just 41-percent shooting. And just expect it's going to be dripped in over a long period of time where he feels comfortable on both sides of the ball.

Brand said he spoke to several of Butler's former teammates and came away more than satisfied. They now have him to go with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons in pursuit of a championship.

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. Butler's prior locker room issues are well-documented.

"I love basketball", he said. "It is what it is, but I think I'm an incredible human being, teammate and I'll show that to the guys that are here".

On paper, this group of players look formidable, but it's hard to gauge how they'll mesh until they're on the court as a unit in a game setting.
