SIXERS GETTING JIMMY BUTLER IS THE NBA DEAL OF THE YEAR!

By Peter Gleason

We’re past the quarter pole in the NBA season, and the Sixers are setting at 16-8, four games behind the Toronto Raptors in the Atlantic Division, good for third in the East behind Toronto and Milwaukee.

And no move likely will have a bigger impact this season (and next summer) than the Sixers’ deal for Jimmy Butler, giving them a star wing to pair with playmaker Ben Simmons and center Joel Embiid.

Since the deal, Philly has won seven of nine games and might even feel like it has the firepower to rise to the top of the Eastern Conference.

If Markelle Fultz’s shoulder injury/mental block wasn’t such an issue, the 76ers would have even more to challenge the Toronto Raptors.

Butler’s insurance if Fultz never quite figures it out, giving the Sixers three potential All-Stars, which should be more than enough to build around.
