Issues around finding a 3rd team and other issues. Key thing to note is Miami is the only team entertaining the wolves steep asking price for butler

Feels like Miami's leaking like crazy on this one. We'll see if they get their way or not.

If you get a top 10-15 player for a bunch of dudes that aren't top fifty you do it....

Well Miami is better than Philly as far as I am concerned...I doubt this is over yet.

Don't think so.  Sixers handle them easily in the playoffs with Embiid recovering from injury and missing the 1st two games.

Do you think Whiteside would play as poorly if they came up against them again? 5/6/1 with 3 fouls in 15 minutes is extraordinarily bad

Also if Miami added Butler he'd be the best player in the series.
