Jimmy Butler could be plan B this summer



Jimmy Butler has brought toxicity wherever he’s gone. He will be 30 by the time next season comes around and would most likely want a max 4-year deal. He has a lot of miles on him from playing for Tom Thibodeau for so many years and hasn’t exactly been a poster-boy of health during his career. So the issue for me, aside from the toxicity and health would be that we would have max deals tied up in 2 superstars who are past their prime.
The Lakers have been working to add an All-Star next to James since the three-time champion announced his intentions to sign last July. Butler could be a serious candidate for their available cap space this offseason.
"L.A., sources said, was one of several teams to inquire about Butler before the swingman was traded to Philadelphia," Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reported on Friday.
Butler would give the Lakers another aggressive scorer and wing defender. He's not a true shooter, but when it comes to point-getting, his nickname is "Jimmy Buckets."
