Fans who haven’t witnessed a Minnesota Timberwolves playoff appearance in 13 seasons lined the rails around the four-story rotunda at the Mall of America for Jimmy Butler’s introductory news conference Thursday, welcoming the All-Star small forward and the hope he represents for the franchise.

“Our expectations are going to be to win,” said Butler, who joins recent No. 1 overall picks Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins to form a talented trio after the Timberwolves acquired him in a blockbuster draft-night deal with the Chicago Bulls. “That’s why they brought me here. These young guys are really, really, really talented. I’m just here to push them to the best of their ability.”
