Sixers’ Brett Brown Believes Jimmy Butler Will Put Team ‘Amongst Royalty for a While’

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown is excited for the debut of recently acquired All-Star forward Jimmy Butler on Wednesday, and believes the addition of the fiery scorer will vault the team into a new stratosphere in the NBA.

“Maybe [Butler is] the first move in the new reality that our goal is to build for a championship, and play in the NBA Finals, and continue to be an annual — and that’s always the hardest thing — contender” Browns said, according to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps. “I think we are building a core, truly, with their ages, that is going to have the ability to do that. We are going to have the ability to do that for a while now.

“We’ll be amongst royalty for a while now. So if you refer to that as sort of the first phase of the legitimate process, I think that’s fair.”

Butler will team with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons to form a formidable Big 3 in the Eastern Conference for what the Sixers hope will be for many years to come.
