As Charania followed up, the package will reportedly include Dario, Robert Covington, Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round draft pick.

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. The 29-year-old has been a malcontent in recent months, making his desire for a trade public and regularly lashing out against his teammates and coaches in Minnesota.

Charania is reporting that the Sixers and Timberwolves will have a trade call on Monday to finalize the deal.

The announcement continued: "Unfortunately, it has not been possible to successfully conclude those negotiations ". The 3,800-megawatt (MW) project was initially a joint venture between Toshiba's Westinghouse Electric and ENGIE.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Butler and the 76ers are expected to reach a deal on a long-term contract in the summer.

The 76ers would be able to offer Butler a five-year max contract worth $190 million, while other teams could offer four years and a projected $141 million.

Butler is averaging 21.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists through 10 games this season. He was named an All-Star for the fourth time in his career, made third team All-NBA and second team All-Defense. He has missed three games this season with "general soreness", but it seems likely that Butler will be feeling better once he arrives in Philadelphia.
