It appears like Jimmy Butler could be preparing to test the free agency waters. As expected, Butler will hit unrestricted free agency this summer.

Philadelphia 76ers wing Jimmy Butler has reportedly chose to opt out of his contract for the 2019-20 season.

Around this time past year, Philadelphia was trying to figure out a way to bring on a third superstar to play alongside Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons to put the Sixers in better position to compete with the other top contenders in the Eastern Conference.

In what shouldn't have been considered a surprise by any basketball fan, Butler opted out of his player-option for next season to put himself in position to potentially earn a max deal at some point this offseason.

In more unsurprising news, Butler's current team, the Philadelphia 76ers, would really like to make sure he returns to the team next season, with Haynes writing that "the Sixers remain adamant about doing whatever it takes to retain the star".

If money is the priority, the 29-year-old should be able to find a willing dance partner in the 76ers; the team reportedly continues to prioritize re-signing the four-time All-Star after he averaged 18.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, four assists, and 1.8 steals following his trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves in November.

In addition to not wanting to play with James, the Lakers were not one of Butler's preferred trade destinations.

"Knock on wood, I will get a max contract no matter where I go", he said at his exit interview last month.

The Sixers also want to bring back free agent Tobias Harris, who will have multiple suitors. "There's a lot that goes into it". But other teams like the Nets and Knicks have also been mentioned in conversations regarding his next stop.
