Minnesota Timberwolves trading Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia 76ers

The 76ers Trade for Jimmy Butler; Now Serious Threats to Win the East

The Jimmy Butler saga appears to have finally come to a close.

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania and Jon Krawczynski, the 76ers have acquired Minnesota's disgruntled star and oft-injured 2017 1st-round pick Justin Patton for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 2nd round pick. The 29-year-old has been a malcontent in recent months, making his desire for a trade public and regularly lashing out against his teammates and coaches in Minnesota.

The trade will reportedly be finalized on Monday on a call with the league office. He has missed three games this season with "general soreness", but it seems likely that Butler will be feeling better once he arrives in Philadelphia.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is also reporting that the Sixers "fully expect" to sign Butler to a contract extension this summer.

Minnesota president and coach Tom Thibodeau decided late Friday night after a fifth straight loss that the team could no longer function with Butler as a part of it, sources said. The Marquette product is a four-time All-Star, two-time All-NBA selection and four-time All-Defensive Team selection. The Sixers will weigh Butler's physical condition and how he fits with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, but they didn't give up such significant assets believing that this would be a rental situation.
