But for now, it's time to discuss how each new Timberwolf fits into the Wolves plans for the current season, as well as the near future.
The Timberwolves and 76ers play twice this season: January 15 in Philadelphia and March 30 in Minnesota.
So far this season, Simmons' vast passing ability has meant that he has been Philadelphia's lead ball handler - even with Markelle Fultz in the starting lineup - but the addition of Butler will mean that the Australian will have to cede some of his ballhandling duties to make the fit work.
