    After a standoff that has stretched into the first part of the season, the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to trade Jimmy Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

    Butler and the Sixers expect to reach a deal on a long-term contract this summer, league sources told ESPN. The Sixers made the trade to add Butler to a Big Three with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

    The Timberwolves will receive a package that includes Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless and a second-round pick, sources said, and Minnesota will also send Justin Patton to Philadelphia.

    Butler, who is expected to become a free agent after this season, requested a trade prior to Timberwolves media day in September. He ultimately reported to the team and was averaging 21.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game for the 4-9 Timberwolves.

    Risky move for the Sixers (mixing Butler with another team of young players). Philly still needs some outside shooters, trading 2 of your better 3 pt shooters for 1 mid-range scorer doesn't help them there

    Great Philly sports weekend! #DallasSucks

    I've had that beer a couple times. The name exceeds the taste but it is fun nonetheless.

    I think you are premature for this. I don' think you will hear much until after winter meetings.

    Also, the White Sox may have made an offer with no firm deadline, as Kopech tweeted he might have to give up his number 34 (it was quickly deleted).

    As for the OP, good for Jimmy Buckets....I think the Rockets offered a bunch of first round picks for him, and the Wolves rejected it. Not sure why they took this offer.

    I actually think the Phillies are going to make a hard press for Trout.
