After starting his All-Star career in Chicago and making noise elsewhere, he’s truly found a home with the Heat — check out the details of Miami’s Jimmy Butler contract.
Jimmy Buckets is making big bucks in South Beach. But in the years ahead, he’ll make even more bank.
As the veteran centerpiece of Miami’s young roster, Jimmy Butler continues to dominate as one of the best small forwards in the game. His resume over his 12 seasons in the league to date includes six NBA All-Star selections, four All-NBA team selections, and five All-Defense nods.
After coming to the Miami Heat in 2018 via a sign-and-trade with the 76ers in the midst of a four-year, $140.8 million max contract at 30% of the salary cap, he’s put together an impressive stretch as Erik Spoelstra’s go-to scorer and a shut-down defender. Needless to say that after just a brief period in South Beach, Jimmy Buckets dully earned the subsequent three-year, $146.4 million extension he signed in 2021 that kicks in following 2022-23.
This season, despite missing some time due to injury and crickets, he’s quietly producing noticeably above his career averages in points, rebounds, assists, and field goal percentage. With that in mind, let’s have a look at the finer details behind Miami’s Jimmy Butler contract and his upcoming extension.
