The full deal - which is scheduled to be filed with the league on Monday - sends Butler and Justin Patton to Philadelphia for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jarryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round draft pick.

The Miami Heat were still in contention to acquire disgruntled forward Jimmy Butler, but their decision to remove Josh Richardson ended such talks.

He had reportedly listed the NY teams, along with the Clippers among his preferred destinations after requesting a trade.

The Philadelphia 76ers sent shockwaves throughout the National Basketball Association landscape Saturday afternoon, finalizing a trade that will land Jimmy Butler as the third star the team has been desperately seeking to add to its young core.

Translated: The Wolves had to trade him, or they would lose him for nothing over the summer. Minnesota just finished an 0-5 road trip with a loss in Sacramento on Friday night and is 4-9 overall - winless in eight games on the road. There are also concerns, though they clearly didn't put off Philadelphia.

When asked about the arrival of Butler ahead of tonight's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Simmons said he "can't wait" to play with the four-time All-Star. Embiid and Simmons have been the established stars on this team, but Butler tends to dominate franchises so it will be interesting to see how they feel taking a back seat to Butler. Washington is giving up a whopping 120.2 points per game. He's on pace this season to average at least 20 points for the fifth consecutive year.
