Jimmy Butler appeared to take aim at his former Minnesota Timberwolves team-mates after scoring 28 points on his home debut for the Philadelphia 76ers in a 113-107 win over the Utah Jazz.

Butler, 29, was traded to the 76ers from the Timberwolves in a deal that included Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Jerryd Bayless going the other way.
