The Philadelphia 76ers are finalizing a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves to land Jimmy Buttler, according to Shams Charania and Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.

Per Zach Lowe of ESPN, the deal will send Croatian forward Dario Saric to the Timberwolves as part of the trade that also includes Robert Covington.

Saric will thus continue his career with the Timberwolves after spending the first two NBA seasons of his career (plus 13 games in 2018-2019) with the Sixers. The 24-year-old player has averaged 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists so far in the NBA.
