The 76ers Trade for Jimmy Butler; Now Serious Threats to Win the East

The Jimmy Butler saga appears to have finally come to a close.

The Athletic has reported that the terms of the deal are Butler and Patton heading from Minnesota to Philadelphia for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, and a 2022 second round draft pick.

The question, of course, is will Butler be happy in Philly? He had reportedly listed the NY teams, along with the Clippers among his preferred destinations after requesting a trade.

In addition to the deal, the reports claims that Philadelphia and Butler expect to reach a deal on a long-team contract this summer. With Butler, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, however, they will have the firepower to compete in the Eastern Conference. Richardson, on the other hand, has already taken a massive leap on this young season and is now averaging 20.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game.

Butler requested a trade away from Minnesota late in the offseason, with the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat his preferred destinations, according to reports. The Marquette product is a four-time All-Star, two-time All-NBA selection and four-time All-Defensive Team selection.
