Jimmy Butler is taking his talents to South Beach, after the 76ers agree to trade him to the Heat in a deal that includes Josh Richardson. Butler’s new deal will be worth $142 million over four years.
This is Butler’s fourth team in three years. Last year, after being traded to the Sixers, he nearly helped lead them to the Eastern Conference Finals, if not for a friendly rim for Kawhi Leonard. In Miami, he gets to be the sole alpha for Pat Riley…for now.
