Jimmy Butler’s Heading To The Sixers

The Butler saga is over and Philly gets a much-needed upgrade.

 

We hope Jimmy Butler loves a good cheesesteak. It’s looking like the disgruntled guard is heading to the city of Brotherly love. 

According to Shams Charania, the now former Timberwolf has been traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Sixers will receive the perennial All-Star while sending Robert Covington, Dario Saric and a 2022 second-round draft pick to Minnesota.

Minnesota has traded Jimmy Butler and Justin Patton to Philadelphia for Robert, Covington, Dario Saric and a 2022 second-round draft pick, league sources tell me and @JonKrawczynski.


Details are still coming but once approved, this could be a dramatic shift in the Eastern Conference.


Butler will now be on an offense that features the reigning ROY in Ben Simmons and low post-terror, Joel Embiid

The Sixers desperately needed another option on a team that’s been streaky at best since the start of the season.
