The Sixers will be trading Robert Covington and Dario Saric as part of the package for Jimmy Butler.
That's a pretty solid return for Minnesota, other assets notwithstanding. Covington gives them a top perimeter defender and floor spacer while Saric appeared to be slowing down as Philly's volume of stars was limiting his ability to stay involved. The Wolves got some great young talent for a player that was going to skip town in the summer. Covington's fantasy value should remain intact as he'll be getting big minutes, while Saric is in line for more usage if he can supplant Taj Gibson at the four.
