Sixers finalizing trade for Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler

Sixers finalizing trade for Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler

As Charania followed up, the package will reportedly include Dario, Robert Covington, Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round draft pick.

According to Jon Krawczynski and Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Philadelphia 76ers have acquired the four-time All-Star from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Philadelphia 76ers have struck a blockbuster deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves to trade for all-star swingman Jimmy Butler, according to multiple reports Saturday afternoon. 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. Richardson, on the other hand, has already taken a massive leap on this young season and is now averaging 20.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game.

The 76ers, meanwhile, have gotten off to a slower start than expected.

However, the Sixers reportedly made the deal with the expectation that Butler will re-sign with the franchise next Summer. The Timberwolves accomplished one goal in the trade, league sources said: Sending Butler to the Eastern Conference and not to a Western rival.
