Jimmy Butler is expected to meet with the Miami Heat in South Florida on Sunday ahead of a meeting with the Houston Rockets, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Saturday.

Butler's meeting with the Rockets likely will take place early next week in Los Angeles, sources said.

The Philadelphia 76ers haven't ruled out working with Butler on sign-and-trade deals, which Miami and Houston both would need to acquire the All-Star guard.

The 76ers are facing a free agency that includes Butler, Tobias Harris and JJ Redick. Butler was acquired in a trade with Minnesota for Dario Saric and Robert Covington in November.
