The Miami Heat are finalizing a sign-and-trade deal for Jimmy Butler. Josh Richardson will go to the Philadelphia 76ers as part of the trade, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Stay tuned for updates.

Butler will be signing a four-year, $142 million maximum contract with the Miami Heat, according to Shams Charania.

According to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, Miami could look to pair Bradley Beal with Butler — at least, that’s what former NBA forward Matt Barnes thinks.

UPDATE: ESPN’s Ramona Shelbourne is reporting that Goran Dragic is being shipped to the Dallas Mavericks as part of the Jimmy Butler deal.

UPDATE: Dragic will not be sent to the Mavs. More updates to follow.
