That admission out of the way, the Sixers would be nuts to sign him to the kind of large, long term deal he wants. Jimmy Buckets will be 30 by the start of next season. In eight NBA seasons he has played more than 70 games on just two occasions, one of which was his second year in the league when he was getting 26 minutes per game and the other in 2016-17. Butler is very good, but you can find another 2/3 swing player a lot more easily than another Ben Simmons. For all of his flaws, finding another Ben Simmons would be much harder than finding another Jimmy Butler.

Speaking of Simmons, a straight up deal of Simmons for LeBron won't work due to the salary disparity and luxury tax issues in Philly.
I would take Butler over Simmons any day. Simmons is a 6'11 guard. Height is all he offers. He can't make a jump shot to save his life. If he put on some weight and plays down low I may change my mind but Butler is my choice between those two.

The Sixers will definitely keep Ben. They want to keep Butler but that is entirely up to him. He will be offered the max contract. If he declines, he losses $30m. Up to him. Ben is still on a rookie contract. He will sign his extension next year.

It is not a choice between the two at all. However, Butler is 7 years older than Ben, and has more miles on him.

As for how he left Minn, I don't care. The young stars there are soft. He didn't want to be stuck with them. I hope he signs an extension with the Sixers. The last year or 2 could be a waste but the window is only open for as long as Embiid has a career which probably isn't longer than 3 or 4 years anyway.

I would sign Jimmy if i want to get the best out of Embiid and Simmons because Jimmy is the perfect asshole that will get Simmons and Embiid to work on their flaws and also Jimmy asshole ways will expose how mentally tough Simmons and Embiid are because you seen how soft Wiggins and Towns were when Jimmy killed them destroying them with 13,14, 15th and g leaguers in practice.

Yup, and he took that right out of the Michael Jordan playbook.

Agree with you 1000%. Butler is needed for the Sixers and I'd take him over Harris anyday (even though Harris is apparently a done deal).
