The Great Jimmy Butler Test of 2018

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — On Monday, Steve Mills, Scott Perry and David Fizdale had a sort of “open forum” for a few select fans to ask questions. When specifically asked about trading for a free-agent-to-be like Jimmy Butler, this is what Mills had to say: “We’re going to build this team the right way.
