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

At the time of identifying his preferred trade destinations, Butler reportedly did not include the Lakers on the list.

ESPN later reported that the Wolves would be receiving a pair of players, Robert Covington and Dario Saric from Philadelphia in return.

Worth noting: The trade won't be official until Monday, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

5 dead in California wildfires, Malibu evacuated
Five people were discovered dead in or near burned-out cars, while another 35 people have been reported missing. In Southern California, two fires have consumed + more than 40,000 acres in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

It brings to an end a almost two-month ordeal since Butler's desire to be traded first became public. He has missed three games this season with "general soreness", but it seems likely that Butler will be feeling better once he arrives in Philadelphia.

And don't think there was going to be a breaking National Basketball Association story without Adrian Wojnarowski chipping in some promising info for 76ers fans, reporting they fully expect to sign Butler to an extension this offseason. Doing so would end any hope of the four-time All-Star landing with the Nets or Knicks in free agency.

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.
