It was almost midnight inside the Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento on Saturday, and Minnesota Timberwolves general manager Scott Layden was the only one in the crowded room still working. In his previous seven seasons, Butler has only played more than 70 games twice.

The deal comes after Butler turned down a four-year, $110 million extension from the Timberwolves during the offseason and was not moved after the Rockets reportedly offered four first-round picks to acquire him. The team called it general soreness at the time, but Butler did not suit up again for the Timberwolves.

Simmons anticipates that the Sixers' big three would develop chemistry based on a common bond. He will make his return trip to Minnesota on March 30th. What could go wrong?
