After the original Jimmy Butler sign-and-trade hit a snag with the Dallas Mavericks, things seem to have been completed with some new partners.

Butler is finally headed to the Miami Heat, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. The Clippers are involved as part of a four-team deal that also includes the Philadelphia 76ers and the Portland Trail Blazers.

Maurice Harkless, who the Trail Blazers originally sent to the Miami Heat along with Meyers Leonard, is headed to Los Angeles.

The Heat are also sending a future first-round pick with him.

The 76ers will Josh Richardson in the deal from the Heat.

As for Miami, they'll finally receive Jimmy Butler on a four-year, $142 million max contract.

It took a little bit of finagling and plenty of anxiety after the initial deal fell through, but the Heat got their man.

The Clippers get a solid veteran in Harkless to potentially draw in Kawhi Leonard and a future first-rounder to look forward to.

All it took was a handful of deals with a bunch of moving parts to send Butler to South Beach.
