The Heat would have decided on the future of Jimmy Butler!

Arrived in postseason with big ambitions, Miami was badly sweeped by Milwaukee. The campaign of the Floridians is now over, it is to look at several important issues. One of them is the case of Jimmy Butler, about whom the franchise made an important announcement.

By being eliminated in just four games by the Bucks, the players of the Heat experienced a nightmarish first round of the playoffs. This is not a reason for Pat Riley to lower his head, however, as he explained after Game 4. The president of the franchise notably reiterated his attachment to the stars of the team:

Pat Riley says that despite the series result against Milwaukee, which he calls bad, they are moving in the right direction. He adds: “We have an excellent core with Jimmy butler and Bam Adebayo. No matter what they did in the playoffs, we didn’t make a mistake with them. « 

A beautiful declaration of confidence in its flagship players, despite the disappointment of the sweep. Riley even added a layer on Buckets, citing his contractual situation. The Miami boss has announced that the former Chicagoan will be paid handsomely when he signs his next contract:

It’s worth mentioning: Sources say the Heat will give Jimmy Butler a full extension when the time comes. It won’t be a problem for them.

Great news for Florida fans, with the rear being the centerpiece of Erik Spoelstra’s squad. Hired at South Beach until 2022-23, his last year of contract is however a player option. The idea is therefore to extend it before giving it the opportunity to think about it.

If the end of the season was catastrophic for Miami, this is not the time for depression in Florida. To cheer up supporters, the franchise has decided to announce that Jimmy Butler should stay for the long term. Champagne for everyone !
