Heat complete four-team Jimmy Butler deal with Blazers, Clippers

Jimmy Butler

The Miami Heat have managed to complete their acquisition of guard Jimmy Butler.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Heat included the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers in the final deal. The Clippers will land Moe Harkless, whom the Heat acquired earlier Monday, as well as a future first-round pick.

The Heat had to clear salary to acquire Butler in the sign-and-trade deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. A deal with the Dallas Mavericks fell apart Sunday night, which led to this somewhat convoluted four-team deal that gets the job done.

Here’s a recap of what everyone gets:

Philadelphia 76ers: Josh Richardson, the salary cap space to add Al Horford
Miami Heat: Jimmy Butler on a 4-year, $142 million deal, Meyers Leonard ($11.3 million, expiring)
LA Clippers: Moe Harkless ($11.5 million, expiring), protected 2023 first-round pick from Miami
Portland Trail Blazers: Hassan Whiteside ($27 million, expiring)
