Miami gets Jimmy Butler

Minnesota gets Josh Richardson, Justice Winslow with a signed extension, and a 2019 lottery protected 1st
Winslow extension will be in the 7-9 million range
Minnesota will save about 3 million in salary and will put them under the hard cap

Winslow will get more than that, probably looking at $11-$13M a year. Still works though salary wise.

Looks like Minny wants multiple picks though, probably need to add at least an unprotected 2nd, if not another protected first.

I don't understand why Miami wants Butler so badly, especially if they would have to give up Richardson AND a guy like Winslow. Butler doesn't make a team on his own. That's been proven in two stops, and he's had better talent around him both places than he would in Miami. You'd be getting rid of the guys you would hope to ADD Butler TO in order to get him, and they're likely shipping off picks which are their only route to getting talent on the cheap to bolster the team.

I like Butler a lot, but he's not a LeBron/ Durant type player who makes you a contender on his own.
