They acquired Butler and Justin Patton from the Minnesota Timberwolves for Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Jerryd Bayless, and a second-round draft pick, and in Butler, 29, a four-time All-Star, they have obtained what they have sought for more than a year: a player who is the equal, at least, of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. They needed such a player to match the overall talent of the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors and perhaps even of the Milwaukee Bucks – to have a realistic chance at competing for a championship.
