Jimmy Butler trade: Report says Timberwolves complete deal with 76ers

Jimmy Butler finally got his wish Saturday as the Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly dealt the former Bulls star to the Philadelphia 76ers.

ESPN reported that Butler will go to Philadelphia in a package that includes Robert Covington and Dario Saric.

Just before the trade, Butler played down his rift with Karl-Anthony Towns and the trade speculation that has hovered over the Timberwolves since the start of training camp, telling The Athletic: “I don’t focus on it. I really don’t. If it happens, if something happens, something happens. If it don’t, I’ve still got to go out there and prove that I can hang with the best of them. That’s what I do every time I take the floor. I dap somebody up, and it’s like, ‘Yo, let’s battle tonight.’ ”
