Jimmy Butler going to 76ers from Minnesota

LeBron James

It appears that the Jimmy Butler saga is near a long-awaited conclusion.

The trade was in exchange for Robert Covington, Jerryd Bayless, Dario Saric and a 2022 second-round pick in the National Basketball Association draft.

The full trade, per reports: The Sixers get Butler and injured second-year center Justin Patton in exchange for Saric, Covington, veteran Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round pick.

After months of bickering and a poisonous locker room with his Minnesota Timberwolves, four-time All-Star Jimmy Butler has been granted his wish and is set to be traded to the 76ers.

The Love Ranch brothel that Hof owned became notorious as the place where former Laker Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015. When Hof died , it was already too late to remove his name from the ballot, and ballots had already been printed and mailed.

In Philadelphia, Butler will join a young, up-and-coming contender built around two All-Star-caliber players in Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

Minnesota did okay in what was a shotgun deal after Butler dropped his trade request right before the start of camp (although I think Miami's Josh Richardson/first rounder offer was better). The trade comes on the heels of an 0-5 road swing for the Wolves, which chiefly get Dario Saric and Robert Covington back in the deal. A call with the league office to finalize it is expected Monday, sources said.

Minnesota also sent Butler out of the West, where he could have done a lot more damage to the Timberwolves in an already stacked conference. ESPN noted the deal was also made with the intention of reaching a long-term contract extension for Butler this summer.

In the end, Twitter wasted no time reminding everyone that the Sixers might have won the trade, but it's still the Golden State Warriors' world.
