Wherever Jimmy Butler ends up this summer, he’s not worried about getting paid.
The All-Star shooting guard was asked on Monday if a max contract was important for his next deal, and Butler didn’t mince words.
Butler played well in the second round of the playoffs for Philadelphia, and he was extremely popular among Sixers fans this season. If it weren’t for Philly’s other free-agent decisions, bringing back Butler might be a no-brainer for the Sixers. But with Tobias Harris and JJ Redick to consider in free agency, the front office has a lot to think about.
That said, Butler should be taken care of financially even if it isn’t with Philly. He’s among the top players to hit the free-agent market this summer.
