Jimmy Butler is set to link up with Aussie NBA star Ben Simmons at the Philadeplhia 76ers.

Butler requested a trade away from Minnesota late in the offseason, with the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat his preferred destinations, according to reports.

He has since played in 10 games, averaging just over 21 points, but has cut an unhappy figure in the Wolves 4-9 start to the 2018-2019 campaign.

The Sixers and Butler, a four-time All-Star, have every intention of formalizing a long-term agreement this summer, sources said, but nothing is allowed to be negotiated or agreed upon until Butler opts out of the final year of his contract after the season.
