BREAKING: Minnesota Timberwolves Trade Jimmy Butler to 76ers

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

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.

As per the agreement, Philadelphia will send Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, and a 2020 second-round pick to Minnesota for Jimmy Butler and forward Justin Patton.

Butler, who after six seasons with the Bulls was traded to the Timberwolves in June 2017, is averaging 21.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists this season for Minnesota (4-9) despite not being happy with his situation.

If you want to put that match into the context of where we are, where we can be, then it becomes even more hard . It left Mourinho's side just two points behind leaders Juventus with two matches to play in Group H.


As for Minnesota, well, Butler leaves the team he joined last summer in less-than-ideal fashion.

Charania is reporting that the Sixers and Timberwolves will have a trade call on Monday to finalize the deal. That deal reportedly included Josh Richardson and a first-round draft pick. The cost for Jimmy Butler would have been even higher, had the Sixers been given the assurance Jimmy Butler would sign on longterm. With Butler, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, however, they will have the firepower to compete in the Eastern Conference.

Butler has one year left on his contract before he can decline his player option and become a free agent in 2019. 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.
