Jimmy Butler is either free of the Minnesota Timberwolves or the Minnesota Timberwolves are free of Jimmy Butler following reports Saturday of a trade to send the disgruntled star to the Philadelphia 76ers, thus ending one of the more bizarre NBA dramas in recent memory.

In return, the Timberwolves reportedly acquired forwards Robert Covington and Dario Saric, as well as veteran guard Jarryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round draft pick. They sent center Justin Patton to Philadelphia to complete the deal.

TRADE GRADES: 76ers take calculated risk with Butler deal

Butler initially demanded a trade this past offseason. When his request was not met in the first 13 games of the regular season, he openly criticized the team and chose to rest for select games. Now, he’ll get a fresh start with a likely playoff team in the 76ers, who add Butler to a core of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

As you might expect, NBA Twitter had some fun with the news.

Other Philadelphia athletes were also pretty pumped about the potential move.
