The first major domino has fallen in the NBA.

Seconds after the Philadelphia 76ers made Markelle Fultz its No. 1 pick Thursday night, the Chicago Bulls have reportedly traded Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Chicago Tribune reported the Bulls “have agreed in principle” in trading Butler to the Timberwolves for Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and the No. 7 pick of the draft. Chicago will also give up its No. 16 pick.

Butler will be reunited with his old coach Tom Thibodeau in Minnesota. He will also a team loaded with talent.
