Minnesota also sent Butler out of the West, where he could have done a lot more damage to the Timberwolves in an already stacked conference.
After months of bickering and a poisonous locker room with his Minnesota Timberwolves, four-time All-Star Jimmy Butler has been granted his wish and is set to be traded to the 76ers.
The trade will reportedly be finalized on Monday on a call with the league office.
Butler played in 10 of those games, averaging 21.3 points. The deal has been finalized by both sides and will have a trade call with the National Basketball Association on Monday, according to Charania.
In addition to the deal, the reports claims that Philadelphia and Butler expect to reach a deal on a long-team contract this summer.
The Wizards most likely would have had to include small forward Otto Porter in any trade for Butler.
Butler is a competent outside shooter - he has shot over 35 percent from deep in three of the last four seasons - but his best use is on the ball where he is a competent isolation scorer and playmaker.
