"I want to see them, see how it fits with both our starters and the bench guys", Thibodeau said.

In the aftermath of the deal to acquire Jimmy Butler from the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Philadelphia 76ers now have three top-tier players on their roster.

So, instead, the Sixers went all-in on Butler now, adding one of the league's elite two-way wing players to a roster already featuring one of its best point guards in Simmons and one of its best centers in Embiid. They won 52 games last season and advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals after going 75-253 combined the previous four years.

Of course, Tuesday was officially Day 1 in his life with a new team after the Timberwolves sent Butler and Justin Patton to the Sixers for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round draft pick. "He's great. He understands, and we can't say this enough, [Sixers general manager Elton Brand] said this". How the newest "Big Three" of Butler, Embiid, and Simmons will mesh is what most National Basketball Association fans will be looking at in Wednesday's contest.

Covington will likely fill Butler's starting spot. While Brand is confident that Butler will reach a longterm deal with Philadelphia, he's admittedly nervous about the deal.

He also said he's excited for Butler and his winning mindset to join the team. Butler defended his reputation.

The announcement came shortly after Netanyahu's Security Cabinet ended a seven-hour discussion on the rising tensions in Gaza. At least 234 Palestinians in Gaza have since been killed by Israeli fire, the majority during protests and clashes.

"I have known Jimmy a long time", Thibodeau said.

"The amusing part about it is all you hear is 'sources say, ' " Butler said. "For the most part, that's why I don't worry too much about what everybody says". "They'll have significant roles, I can tell you that".

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

"I love my teammates". Every time I step out onto the court, my goal is to play hard, and the more time I get out there, the more time I get to go hard. "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".

Brand said he spoke to several of Butler's former teammates and came away more than satisfied. Butler's prior locker room issues are well-documented. All I want to do is compete and help my team win.
