Somebody on Reddit Actually Proposed the Exact Jimmy Butler Trade to 76ers a Month Ago

There’s only one place to find the latest updates from ​NBA experts and insiders. Only one place to see the best takes with the most recent stats to back them up. One place to look for all your NBA needs. Where is that? Reddit.

Reddit proved to be a land of the divine once again when Jimmy Butler was traded to the ​Sixers on Saturday in a somewhat surprising move. One Reddit user, CoolScales, actually predicted the exact trade ​exactly a month ago, writing:

 

“Jimmy Butler for Dario Saric, Robert Covington, and Jared Bayless

The Timberwolves get an underrated player in Saric who would complement Towns well, a defensive player in RoCo who’s locked up on a good contract, and a guy to help make this trade work in Jared Bayless. Perhaps a pick may make this trade. Butler, Simmons, and Embiid is a fantastic core. Pieces like Wilson Chandler, JJ Redick, and what will be an impressive year for Fultz would put them right there with the Celtics.”

This came in a post with four trade options for the Timberwolves that would benefit both sides after Butler requested a trade over the summer. He definitely nailed this one (besides Justin Patton, but come on, that’s close enough).
