Jimmy Butler Expected to Ask For 4 yr/$181M Max Extension


The Miami Heat just went down in flames in the first round of the playoffs, swept in four straight by the Milwaukee Bucks. But according to a new report in the Miami Herald, Jimmy Butler will be seeking a 4-yr, $181 million dollar max extension this summer. 

Butler still has two years remaining on his current deal, but this extension would have the Heat paying him until his age-36 season, topping out at $50M/year. 

This all comes after Butler, who led the Heat to the Finals in the bubble last year,  averaged just 14.5 ppg on 29.7 percent shooting, to go with a massive minus-86 over their recent 4-game sweep at the hands of the Bucks.

How is 'Heat Nation' feeling about all this? Many seem to be saying they just don't have a choice.
