The Philadelphia 76ers are heading toward a very important offseason where they will have to decide how to handle the free agency of mid-season acquisitions Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst on his podcast The Hoop Collective, rival executives around the league believe the Sixers will max out Butler.

“I’ve been talking to some executives this week and the executives, I think, now believe that the Sixers will. I don’t know about the fifth year, like, full guaranteed, but yeah.”

Butler came over in a November trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves and, after figuring out some early chemistry issues, really began to take over as the closer in the fourth quarter for this team. He averaged 18.2 points and 5.3 rebounds along with four assists in 55 games with the Sixers.
