Timberwolves agree to trade Jimmy Butler to 76ers

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

Philadelphia and Butler, a four-time All-Star, plan to reach an agreement on a long-term extension in July, when Butler, 29, can opt out of the final year of his contract, league sources said. The 76ers would be able to offer him a five-year max contract worth $190 million, while other teams could offer four years and a projected $141 million.

The Sixers are trading forwards Robert Covington and Dario Saric, guard Jerryd Bayless, and a 2020 second-round pick for Butler and forward Justin Patton, sources said.



We can say what we want, the 76ers just got tougher and a guy that will play hard everynight! Not like those two sensitive softies that they have in Minnesota!
