MEMPHIS – The 76ers just got their third star.
The team will acquire All-Star swingman Jimmy Bulter and Justin Patton from the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless and a 2020 second-round pick, according to league sources. The teams will likely execute the trade on Monday. Teams usually have 48 hours to take physicals after the trade call. Trades are normally finalized after the players pass their physical.
As a result, don’t expect any of the involved players to participate in games until the trade is finalized.
The Athletic was the first to report the news.
