The Miami Heat were still in contention to acquire disgruntled forward Jimmy Butler, but their decision to remove Josh Richardson ended such talks.

In a slightly differing report, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that the deal was discussed prior to the Kings game, nearly leading to Butler sitting out, and that it was completed before the team left to head back to Minnesota.

Jimmy Butler's situation with the Minnesota Timberwolves came to a head Friday night, according to reports. Details of the trade are still being finalized. He was named an All-Star for the fourth time in his career, made third team All-NBA and second team All-Defense.

ESPN later added in that the Wolves would also be sending Justin Patton to Philadelphia as part of the deal.
