The 76ers Trade for Jimmy Butler; Now Serious Threats to Win the East

He had reportedly listed the NY teams, along with the Clippers among his preferred destinations after requesting a trade.

The 76ers also needed to find another superstar to help the team overcome Aron Baynes' Boston Celtics, who sit in fifth place in the East but proved too strong for Rookie of the Year, Australia's Simmons, and All-Star centre Joel Embiid, in last year's playoffs.

Simmons anticipates that the Sixers' big three would develop chemistry based on a common bond. The max he can earn is five years, $190 million, and while other teams are hesitant about that length of a deal for Butler, the Sixers have cashed in key assets and are all in now.
