    I agree with War and MBT. If your told Butler he wasn’t getting a max extension and if he doesn’t like it he can just leave there would be 29 other teams lining up to pay it.

    Heck Forbes scored more then Butler in that series. This contract wont age well. Butler's best days are behind him. Ton of miles on him. Seemed to want out when things go bad.

    But the hard thing with Butler is you have to do it or he gets pissy. It's the good and bad with Butler.

    BTW a very under the radar story with Butler: His shooting has been on the decline especially form 3. Maybe he's reinventing himself into the distributor type role and he doesn't try to take as many shots? Maybe he's lost someone in his corner that made him better at it? I'm not sure, but the decline in those numbers is worth watching.

    That’s not a Butler thing, I think every player of his caliber expects to get paid a max extension (and several below his level).

    More talking about the moment he can get one. Most guys like to wait until the last minute because it's more lucrative. He wants it as soon as he's eligible.

    Report: Jimmy Butler contract extension just three, not four, years

    https://nba.nbcsports.com/2021/08/10...ot-four-years/

    Jimmy Butler still signed a lucrative extension with the Heat. He’ll still be under contract through age 36 in 2026.

    But it’s a three-year extension, not the four-year extension initially reported,*according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.

    Instead of replacing his $37,653,300 player option for 2022-23 with a higher max salary (projected to be $42 million) in the extension, Butler exercised his player option in conjunction with the new deal. The extension will begin in 2023.

    The extension will be worth between $135,240,854 and $146,396,030.
