The Philadelphia 76ers have won the Jimmy Butler sweepstakes.

Butler, who after six seasons with the Bulls was traded to the Timberwolves in June 2017, is averaging 21.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists this season for Minnesota (4-9) despite not being happy with his situation.

ESPN reported that Butler will go to Philadelphia in a package that includes Robert Covington and Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round pick.

Ex-Blues Midfielder Reckons Sarri has Unlocked Attacking Potential of Chelsea
Michael Ballack believes Maurizio Sarri has finally found the key to unlocking Chelsea's attacking qualities this season. It was the former Arsenal forward's header that sealed Chelsea's 1-0 in the Europa League against Bate on Thursdsy.

Sixers and Butler aren't allowed to enter into a negotiation or a agree on an extension yet, but barring physical issues or Butler failing to fit into the Embiid-Simmons dynamic both sides are optimistic on a long-term future.

However, the Sixers reportedly made the deal with the expectation that Butler will re-sign with the franchise next Summer.

The 76ers would be able to offer Butler a five-year max contract worth $190 million, while other teams could offer four years and a projected $141 million. Moreover, Butler should bring a sense of intensity and veteran leadership that Philadelphia has lacked since last season. Though, there were mixed reports on whether Butler is receptive to playing alongside James. 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.
