Karl-Anthony Towns: I Think Jimmy Butler Will Be Missed

Jimmy Butler received praise from Karl-Anthony Towns following his trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Philadelphia 76ers.

“He’s one hell of a player,” Towns said Sunday. “I don’t know how many Jimmy Butlers there are in the world, so I think he’ll be missed.”

Towns spent most of the past two months downplaying any friction with Butler.

“I learned a lot of things from him,” Andrew Wiggins said of Butler. “We made the playoffs, something we haven’t done in a long, long time. So I think it was a positive either way you put it.”
