Embiid finished with 19 points, 13 rebounds and a career-high 10 assists for a triple-double, and Philadelphia had 32 assists on 41 field goals - an impressive tally for a team trying to integrate a significant new piece.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN reported that the Wolves were prepared to trade Butler after last Wednesday's game and began soliciting final offers. There doesn't, however, seem to be a unanimous answer to what "best" entails. Thibodeau called that "a good pick". I can deal with that, our organization can deal with that, our players can deal with that, because they want to win. The pick part was important.

Don't get me wrong: Robert Covington and Dario Saric are terrific role players to compliment Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. "I think I'm an incredible human being, teammate, and I will show that to the guys here". Thibodeau coached Butler with the Chicago Bulls and traded for Butler during the 2017 NBA Draft. During Butler's tenure, Minnesota was 61-44. They then went on an 11-2 run to close things out to give Orlando a 111-106 victory and spoil Butler's first game with Philadelphia. Thibodeau, who coached Butler with the Bulls prior to their time together with the Timberwolves, dodged questions asking him to characterize his relationship since Butler made his exit.

But when you look at what Minnesota could have received for Butler, this trade doesn't look as good as it should. "We knew there was risk involved with it".

"The amusing part about it is all you hear is 'sources say, '" Butler said". "At least we know what we got and everybody is going to be on the same page".

"My mindset, as soon as I step on the court, is to help my team win", Fultz said.
