It’s done: Jimmy Butler trade to Philadelphia completed

first_imgLATEST STORIES Herald the Bedans Butler and Justin Patton were traded to Philadelphia for Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Jerryd Bayless, along with a 2022 second-round draft pick.Butler will be introduced by the 76ers on Tuesday and is expected to debut with his new club Wednesday at Orlando. Philadelphia was playing at Miami on Monday.“We have a championship window that’s centered around the continued progression of our talented young core, as well as our ability to add elite players who elevate our program,” 76ers general manager Elton Brand said. “In Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, we have two of the NBA’s top 20 players. Now, we’ve added a third top-20 player in Jimmy Butler.”The 76ers won 47 games in a three-season span between 2013 and 2016. They won 28 in 2016-17, made the jump to the playoffs at 52-30 last season and now will be considered an even more serious threat to emerge as the East representative in the NBA Finals.“The biggest challenge is piecing all this together,” Brown said. “It’s not even close. … I say that completely from an excitement standpoint. This isn’t a burden. Sure, it’s a responsibility. But I’m excited with piecing this together.”ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college MOST READ Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

(AP Photo/Steve Yeater)MIAMI — Jimmy Butler is in Philadelphia, and upon his arrival he immediately began talking about winning a championship.“The Process” has a whole new meaning.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Butler has averaged 21.8 points per game since the start of the 2014-15 season, the 13th-highest clip in the NBA over that span.There are three teams with multiple current teammates averaging at least that many points over those seasons. Golden State has three such players, with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins, though Cousins hasn’t played yet this season for the Warriors while recovering from surgery.Oklahoma City teammates Russell Westbrook and Paul George also have averaged that much — and now, Philly has such a pairing in Butler and Embiid.“I think he’s going to bring toughness, scoring ability, a veteran,” 76ers guard Markelle Fultz said. “Just going to compete on both ends of the floor and I hope he pushes this team to a higher level.”Butler is the obvious headliner to this trade, though there will be some adjustments for the 76ers to make now that the deal is finally done.Saric and Covington were key players for Philadelphia, combining to make 398 starts including playoffs for the 76ers during their time with the club. Saric averaged 13.5 points with the 76ers over parts of three seasons, while Covington averaged 12.9 points during his five seasons with Philly. They were the starting forwards for the 76ers in nearly every game last season, when Philadelphia had its best record since 2000-01 — the last time that the franchise went to the NBA Finals.“We’re excited to have these guys come in,” Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau said. “With Robert and Dario, that they’ve started on a good team, they’ll help.”The deal between the teams was struck on Saturday, though it couldn’t become official until the trade call Monday.It ends a two-month saga during which there was no doubt that Butler was going to get traded out of Minnesota. He told the Timberwolves shortly before training camp that he wanted to be moved, which forced Minnesota’s hand because it was obvious that Butler would not re-sign next summer. So the options were to move him for something, or lose him for nothing.“He loves to win,” Fultz said. “He’s going to do whatever it takes to win.” Butler, a four-time All-Star forward, is now officially a member of the 76ers, after they and the Minnesota Timberwolves received approval from the league office Monday on the terms of the trade that was agreed to over the weekend.“He replicates, he mirrors, the spirit of Philadelphia,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said. “He is a fierce competitor. And there is a toughness that he plays with. That’s who he is. And he wears it on his face, it’s seen in his game, it’s confirmed by multiple all-defensive teams and it’s a perfect fit for the city and our program defensively.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe deal gives Philadelphia a legitimate “Big Three,” with Butler joining All-Star forward Joel Embiid and reigning rookie of the year Ben Simmons on a team that already was expected to be a major Eastern Conference contender this season. Butler flew into Philadelphia on Monday and told NBC Sports Philadelphia that fans should expect “a guy who wants to win.”“We want a championship,” Butler said as he signed a couple of autographs before he was driven away from the airport. “And I think the core group of guys that we have will figure out a way to get it done.”last_img read more

‘Renegade Lawmakers’ Flip

first_imgA faction within the House of Representatives calling for House Speaker J. Alex Tyler to recuse himself from presiding and submit to an investigation of corruption allegations, has somersaulted on their previous position.The ‘rebellious lawmakers,’ through a communication addressed to plenary recently demanded that Speaker Tyler submit to probe by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) for his alleged involvement in a US$10,000 scandal with a contractor.According to a communication sent to plenary dated January 19, 2015 under the signatures of Montserrado County Representatives Bill Twehway, Samuel Kogar and others, the protesting lawmakers announced a withdrawal of their January 12, 2015 letter that prompted the controversy.The January 19 letter indicated that the over six lawmakers are now desirous that “LACC and all relevant institutions [would] ensure that the dignity of this body remains intact.”According to them, “consistent with Rule 48, Section 48.2, where a member is aware of the existence of a breach of the code of conduct and procedure, same must be reported to the House for the appropriate action. Accordingly and in line with section 48.3, a communication was addressed to the Speaker. The evidence of the Speaker being subject of investigation at the LACC is common knowledge and hence there was no need for further evidence.”Interestingly, the January 12 communication was opened for discussion and plenary subsequently voted on the matter.During voting in Tuesday, January 20, session, 38 representatives voted that the Rules, Order and Administration Committee headed by Grand Bassa County Representative J. Byron Brown, lead the investigation while six were against and two abstained.Meanwhile, the ‘renegade lawmakers’ expressed dismay over recent reshuffle action by Speaker Tyler, citing breach of the House’s rules.According to them, the Speaker, who is a Bomi County lawmaker, had violated Rule 41 of their Rules, Order and Procedures, and as such, they are prepared to as well challenge the decision.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Yokohama Charity Worker Wants Protection for Children

first_imgA Yokohama charity worker who has spent time in Ebola-hit West Africa has urged more global support to protect orphaned children at risk of abuse.Risa Kojima worked in Liberia to protect children in the aftermath of the Ebola epidemic that killed more than 4,000 people in the country from 2014 to earlier this year.“Support for children is most needed after the end of the outbreak,” the 32-year-old said in Tokyo after finishing her three-month mission in January as a member of Save the Children, an international nongovernmental organization, in the West African nation.“There will be no future development for Liberia without a healthy environment for children. We need to build a system to protect children in a comprehensive way.”Kojima said the number of children who have lost parents due to Ebola has exceeded 2,000 and that many schoolgirls reportedly became pregnant while schools were closed.“The environment surrounding children has changed and the risk of them being abused is even higher,” she said.During the mission in Liberia, Kojima engaged in activities to educate people about how to prevent child abuse, visiting shelters for adults and children.Kojima said she explained that a child can be emotionally affected when they are casually told by friends not to come close just because a parent is infected with Ebola.She told the locals about the consequences of child abuse. “When a child is abused not only physically but also mentally, it could hamper development of his or her sociability.”Kojima hails from Yokohama, and was raised by her mother, who was a kindergarten teacher.She said watching a documentary about famine in Africa when she was in elementary school inspired her charity work today.“When I was a kid, I had a tiny appetite and even dinner was a painful time for me,” she said. “So it was quite shocking when I learned that there are children out there who are ailing due to lack of food.”After specializing in child care and child abuse at graduate schools in Japan and the U.K., Kojima worked as a Japan International Cooperation Agency researcher in Sierra Leone, northwest of Liberia.Kojima said she hopes to go back to Liberia soon to help create a solid child protection system.

CONCERN OVER UNCERTAINTY OF FUTURE OF DONEGAL’S NOWDOC SERVICE

first_imgThere is fresh concern over the future make-up of Donegal’s out-of-hours GP service NowDoc.Th NowDoc offices in Letterkenny.Deputy Pearse Doherty, has today described as ‘concerning’ the uncertainty surrounding the future shape of the medical service.Deputy Doherty made his comments after it was confirmed today by the HSE that the group ‘Caredoc’, who together with the HSE provide the NOWDoc Service, has indicated that it plans to withdraw from the service’s current arrangement which has been in operation since 2013. “The HSE has confirmed to me this week that following recent discussions between both the HSE and Caredoc concerning service arrangements, in which both the service’s current funding provision and clinical governance model were debated, an agreement between the two parties could not be reached.”“Subsequent to the failure of these discussions to yield an agreement, Caredoc has expressed its desire to withdraw from the partnership – this is quite concerning and casts some doubts over the future shape of the Out-of-Hour service here in the County.”“One of the key issues surrounding these discussions was a request by Caredoc for the HSE to make additional funding available to meet the costs of providing Locum GP cover for the service’s five centres during the ‘Red Eye’ hours.”“However, the HSE North West Area has stated that their current budget does not allow for such an allocation to be made.” He added that the future form which NOWDoc may take is now somewhat uncertain, as questions remain surrounding the survival of the current structure of the ‘Red Eye’ service which traditionally has covered the night time hours between 11pm and 8am.“I am concerned about where this leaves us in relation to night time Out-of-Hour GP care, particularly for people in remote rural areas of the County who should happen to become ill during the night – this could have negative implications for them.”“Of course, GPs are contractually obliged to provide an Out-of-Hours service; the HSE has confirmed in a statement that it has, ‘continued its discussions and engagement with the North West GP representatives to ensure that the Out of Hours GP service continues to be provided to patients in the North West Area, in a safe and efficient manner’ – I of course welcome this announcement by the HSE.”“However, it is crucial that the future shape of the service is neither diminished nor reduced; I would therefore urge the HSE not to allow any dilution of this service irrespective of the present challenges it faces.”“Naturally, the continuation of this service is vital for the people of Donegal who depend on it for medical assistance during out-of-hour periods when they are unwell and at their most vulnerable.” CONCERN OVER UNCERTAINTY OF FUTURE OF DONEGAL’S NOWDOC SERVICE was last modified: February 12th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:NowDocParse Dohertylast_img read more

Finn Harps denied first League win by late Coughlan penalty

first_imgRonan Coughlan’s last-minute penalty denied Finn Harps a first League win of the season tonight.Sligo Rovers 1 Finn Harps 1Sean Boyd’s first-half header had Harps in front and, seemingly, on their way to a rare win, only for them to be dashed at the death. The draw does, at least, end a losing sequence that had reached a club record tenth game on Monday, but there was no doubt that Coughlan’s goal came as a dagger to Harps’ hearts.Daniel O’Reilly was adjudged by referee Ben Connolly to have fouled Coughlan. O’Reilly was given his marching orders, via a second yellow card, and Coughlan fired the penalty beyond Harps ‘keeper Peter Burke to earn a point.Harps had led from the 42nd minute when Boyd – on loan from Shamrock Rovers – got on the end of a John Kavanagh cross to head past Mitchell Beeney.Earlier, O’Reilly headed at Beeney from a cross by Mark Russell, while Tony McNamee and Caolan McAleer had chances for the visitors. Harps belied their standing as the Premier Division’s bottom side in the first half and the goal was a deserved one for Ollie Horgan’s side.They didn’t have it all their own way and Ronan Murray fired wide for the hosts.Harps included Mark Anthony McGinley as their substitute goalkeeper tonight.Sligo thought they had levelled when Romeo Parkes had the ball in the net, but the celebrations were cut short by an offside flag.Soon after, Ballybofey man Johnny Dunleavy was thwarted by Burke and, at the other end, Beeney saved from McAleer. Burke denied Parkes and Harps looked to have done enough – but they were undone in the final moments.Sligo Rovers: Mitchell Beeney, Johnny Dunleavy, Dante Leverock, John Mahon, Lewis Banks, Sam Warde (Kris Twardek, 76), David Cawley, Niall Morahan (Daryl Fordyce, 55), Ronan Murray (Regan Donelon, 46), Ronan Coughlan, Romeo Parkes.Finn Harps: Peter Burke, John Kavanagh, Sam Todd, Niall Logue, Daniel O’Reilly, Mark Russell (Keith Cowan, 67), Mark Coyle, Raffaele Cretaro (Nathan Boyle, 71), Tony McNamee (Jacob Borg, 83), Caolan McAleer, Sean Boyd.Referee: Ben Connolly.
