(KETK) — It looks like former TJC Apache, Jimmy Butler, has found a new NBA home.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Miami is finalizing a sign-and-trade deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Butler was traded to the 76ers from Minnesota this past season, where he helped the team make it to the Eastern Conference semifinals, where they lost on a last second shot in Game 7 against the Toronto Raptors.

Butler is a sports icon in Tyler, and TJC has named the Wagstaff Gymnasium Lobby after him.
