The Minnesota Timberwolves have reached agreement with the Chicago Bulls on a trade for Jimmy Butler ad the No. 16 pick, giving up Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and No. 7.
The two sides also discussed a deal last offseason.
Butler will join a Wolves’ core that also features Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.
Minnesota has pursued trading Ricky Rubio at various points in the past and it’s unclear how the trade impacts his future.
Butler can become a free agent in 2019. Due to the trade, Butler is no longer eligible for a supermax extension. Butler will have to wait until 2021 to sign a 35 percent max contract.
