Timberwolves trade Jimmy Butler to Sixers

Jimmy Butler Is Reportedly Getting Traded To The Philadelphia 76ers The 76ers Trade for Jimmy Butler; Now Serious Threats to Win the East

The Minnesota Timberwolves have reached an agreement to trade disgruntled All-Star forward Jimmy Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told ESPN.

It brings to an end a almost two-month ordeal since Butler's desire to be traded first became public.

Following the 2018-19 season, Butler will be an unrestricted free agent and Philadelphia had previously expressed interest in adding Butler to make up a big three with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

Today is a bad day for the Celtics, Raptors, and Bucks.

As Charania followed up, the package will reportedly include Dario, Robert Covington, Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round draft pick. Justin Patton, who was selected with the No. 16 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, is also included in the deal.

Butler is averaging 21.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists through 10 games this season.

The 76ers, meanwhile, have gotten off to a slower start than expected. They're currently 8-5, third place in an Eastern Conference that figures to be wide open with LeBron James now in Los Angeles.

However, the Sixers reportedly made the deal with the expectation that Butler will re-sign with the franchise next Summer.
