Butler, 30, is the Heat’s alpha this year.
The Heat acquired Butler through a multi-team trade last summer. In fact, Leonard was part of the deal as well.
Upon arrival, Butler signed a four-year, $142 million contract with the Heat. The five-time All-Star has been everything the Heat desired from him.
On the season, the veteran is putting up 20.2 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game. He has been a fearless leader, encourager and role model.
The journeyman constantly pumps up the Heat’s young base, which has thrived this season. Rising star Bam Adebayo, who is having a career year, has cited Butler’s presence as a reason for his success.
The Heat resume the 2019-20 season on Aug. 1 against the Denver Nuggets.
