What figured to be a relatively quiet November Saturday before a BIG Philadelphia Eagles versus Dallas Cowboys game on Sunday Night Football has changed.
The Sixers unexpectedly became the talk of the town this weekend by making a major trade to acquire four-time NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler.
You can check out our friends over at Liberty Ballers (and The Stepover Pod) for more reaction and analysis regarding the deal.
For now, here’s a look at Eagles players welcoming Butler to Philly.

“The best sports city in America” and the “city of champions.” I see no lies here.
Eagles players often frequent Sixers home games at “The Center.” I’m sure that’ll continue, especially with Butler in town now.

Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks, and Lane Johnson:
Malcolm Jenkins and LeGarrette Blount:
While the Butler acquisition is certainly exciting, I am bummed to see Process fixtures like Dario Saric and Robert Covington go.
Gonna miss rooting for @dariosaric and @Holla_At_Rob33 on the Sixers. Thanks for the fun times. #TrustTheFriendship pic.twitter.com/EWtL0hByAV— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) November 10, 2018
