I don't think I'm a bad teammate but people get whatever they want to say out.

"We have a championship window, and it's important that we do whatever it takes to capitalize on it", Brand said.

Fultz hasn't attempted a 3-pointer in seven games.

The 27-year-old, who went undrafted out of Tennessee State and began in the National Basketball Association with Houston in the 2013-14 season, has career averages of 12.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game with a 35.9 shooting percentage from 3-point range.

That's the area where he'll help the Timberwolves the most, the area that Butler was also acquired to help improve.

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.

Taylor explained what went into the franchise's decision to trade Butler and indicated they wanted to wait and see how other teams were playing before making a deal.

Only time will tell how the Butler-76ers relationship will pan out.

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

"If I was trying to recoup everything that Tom Thibodeau gave up to get his beloved Butler - Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the first-round draft pick that became Lauri Markkanen - I would have preferred what the Heat offered last month", stated Stein in response to a question he received from a fan via email. "You know that. It was hard going through that with Thibs", Butler said. I love to show I can help a team win, that I'm one of the really good players in the league. Never mind a report from The Athletic that Butler chose to sit indefinitely after the Kings game Friday. I have so much respect for him and the organization and the players that they have. Brand saw the shot but wasn't overly concerned by it.

Butler is expected to make his debut with the 76ers on Wednesday against the Magic with tip-off set for 7 p.m. ET.

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. "And I'm looking forward to the opportunity".
