Jimmy Butler is slated to be one of the top free agents in the 2019 class. However, if a tweet is correct, he will not be on the market for long.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the 76ers and Butler are expected to work out an extension to keep him in Philadelphia. Should an extension be reached, it’ll keep him in the City of Brotherly Love for the foreseeable future after one season with the team.

Previously, his name was being mentioned as a candidate to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers. Kawhi Leonard — who presently plays with the Toronto Raptors after a blockbuster deal in the summer — was another name being mentioned but he could stay in the Six, as well.

Butler was traded to the 76ers on Saturday afternoon. Josh Patton was also packed in the deal.

In exchange for the disgruntled star, Robert Covington, Dario Šarić, and Jerryd Bayless went to Minnesota. The team also received a 2022 second-round draft pick.

An official trade call with the league will take place on Monday.

Butler will now become part of a Big Three in Philadelphia. He joins Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.
