Reuters Last Updated at 10-11-2018 23:42:40 IST

The Minnesota Timberwolves are ending the drama surrounding Jimmy Butler after agreeing to trade the disgruntled superstar to the Philadelphia 76ers, according to an ESPN report on Saturday.

Details of the trade, reported by Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe, were not disclosed.

The Athletic's Shams Charania, however, is reporting that Minnesota will receive forwards Dario Saric and Robert Covington, guard Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round pick.

The 76ers will also reportedly receive center Justin Patton from the Timberwolves.

Butler has averaged 21.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.4 steals through 10 games this season.

Butler, 29, requested a trade during the preseason and told Minnesota he plans to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
