2698351, Sixers offered a package very similar to what netted Butler

Anybody saying that Kawhi was a better play than Butler is talking pure hindsight bullshit. Also the Spurs wanted Fultz and he netted them an extra first-rounder (and they also got a recent first-round pick in the deal with Minnie). From a risk and asset management standpoint, Philly did the right thing.

But I don't wanna obscure praise for the Raptors management. Brass balls move and it paid off huge. I always like da gawd and defended him even when I wasn't in love with this deal given the nebulous status of Kawhi's health and pending free agency. He has done a great job in both Denver and Toronto.
