Jimmy Butler Declines 2019-20 Option With Sixers

By: Julio Olmo

Jimmy Butler turning down his 2019-20 player option with the 76ers and deciding hit the free-agent market it is not a surprising move.

It is a clear sign of the NBA free agency wildness coming.

Butler will likely be offered multiple max contracts from teams across the NBA, including the Sixers.

It would have been a shocking move for Butler to pick up his option with the Sixers for next season, taking less money than he will be able to draw once the free-agent bidding opens up on June 30.

The Sixers, can make Butler a five year max offer and hope that he stays in Philadelphia rather than heading to Los Angeles to join the Lakers, who are reportedly around some NBA circles prepared to offer Butler a lucrative deal, but that’s all they have!

A proper bidding war can’t happen unless there is something to bid for so Jimmy Butler declining his player option was inevitable.

While expected, the move is the first shoe to drop in what is going to be a whirlwind of an offseason that could be the most important in NBA history.

The next move is up to the Sixers now, who will have to maneuver through the June 20 NBA draft before dedicating their time fully to the free agent frenzy that awaits.

I’ve follow Jimmy Butler’s career since his tenure with the Chicago Bulls and he is not afraid to move on, so we’ll see if Los Angeles is indeed his next destination.
