The Minnesota Timberwolves have reached an agreement to trade disgruntled All-Star forward Jimmy Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told ESPN.

The 76ers are trading forwards Robert Covington and Dario Saric, guard Jerryd Bayless, and a 2022 second-round pick for Butler and forward Justin Patton, sources said.

The Sixers and Butler, a four-time All-Star, have every intention of formalizing a long-term agreement this summer, sources said, but nothing is allowed to be negotiated or agreed upon until Butler opts out of the final year of his contract after the season. The Sixers will weigh Butler’s physical condition and how he fits with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, but they didn’t give up such significant assets believing that this would be a rental situation.

Sources: Potential Three-Team Trevor Ariza Trade Falls Apart

A three-team deal that would have sent Trevor Ariza to the Washington Wizards and Kelly Oubre to the Memphis Grizzlies is dead over which Brooks — MarShon or Dillon — the Phoenix Suns had believed they were getting, league sources said.

The Grizzlies and Suns didn’t communicate directly on the trade, using Washington as a conduit in coordinating the three-team deal. Washington believes it was told Dillon Brooks in conversations with Memphis, sources said. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon.

Memphis would not put Dillon Brooks in the trade, and in the end, the agreement was called off.
