According to multiple sources, the Philadelphia 76ers have just made a major move. They have acquired Minnesota Timberwolves Jimmy Butler and Justin Patton for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, and a 2022 second round pick.
Jimmy Butler is a four-time All-Star. The 76ers would be able to offer Butler a five-year max contract worth $190 million, while other teams could offer four years and a projected $141 million, according to ESPN.
The Sixers’ odds to win the NBA title have improved from 30-1 to 16-1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and their odds to win the Eastern Conference went from 7-1 to 3-1.
