Killa hopped on Instagram Saturday (November 10) to weigh-in on NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler getting traded to the 76ers from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Butler is now in the Atlantic Division, and the Celtics road to the Finals just got a bit more hard.

Butler had announced that he wanted to be traded around the time training camps opened in September.

Ben Simmons #25 of the Philadelphia 76ers and Joel Embiid #21 react after a dunk by Embiid in the fourth quarter against the LA Clippers at the Wells Fargo Center on November 1, 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Details of the trade leaked out shortly after, with the Sixers reportedly sending Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round pick to the Wolves in exchange for Butler and Justin Patton.

Alec Baldwin arrested after NY parking spot spat
The driver of the station wagon told police Baldwin hit him with his hand, but wasn't sure if it was a punch or a slap. This is not 60-year-old Mr Baldwin's first run-in with the law - in 2014, he was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Lewis Hamilton fifth title: 'I don't know if it'll ever kick in'
The way Hamilton is driving at the moment, it seems more than possible that he could go on to surpass the German. Pilot " Red bull " Daniel Ricardo became the victor of the qualifying heats at the Grand Prix of Mexico.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the trade. Minnesota just finished an 0-5 road trip with a loss in Sacramento on Friday night and is 4-9 overall - winless in eight games on the road.

The Wizards have started the season 2-9 and now have the worst defense in the National Basketball Association.

When asked about the arrival of Butler ahead of tonight's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Simmons said he "can't wait" to play with the four-time All-Star.

While Butler obviously makes the 76ers a more risky and talented team, the fit between he and the team's young star duo will take some time to iron out. So far, he's averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 rebounds per game, both of which are career-bests.
