With this deal, the 76ers have secured another all-star in their team and are now without a doubt one the contenders in the eastern conference. They are getting a two-way guard who can add value immediately while at the same time the Timberwolves are getting rid of a player who apparently didn't want to be a part of their organization.

With Saric and Covington they are getting 2 players who could possibly immediately be implemented in the starting lineup and provide more depth to their roster.

Fun times are ahead of us, especially in the eastern conference now with the 76ers now adding more essential pieces to their team. It will be interesting to see how quick can Jimmy Butler adapt to Philly's system where the game was predominantly centered around their big men Joel Embiid.

Butler is known for being a guy who is not afraid to put a lot of pressure on his teammates to win a game, and if they'll be able to blend his personality into the already working system, 76ers might have a reason to be happy about in the continuation of this season.
