Former Miami Heat Star Approves of Jimmy Butler and Russell Westbrook Duo in Miami
- Updated: July 8, 2019
The rumor mill in South Florida is churning at full speed once again with the latest reports indicating that the Miami Heat are targeting former MVP Russell Westbrook.
While fans have been rather polarized in terms of their interest in bringing Westbrook to Miami, former Heat star Caron Butler is all for the acquisition.
Butler took to Twitter to voice his emphatic approval of a pairing of Westbrook and current Heat star Jimmy Butler.
Please make this happen!

Butler was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2002 NBA Draft and spent his first two years with the Heat before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.
He would later be named to two All-Star games, and in 2011 he won an NBA title over the team that drafted him with the Dallas Mavericks.
Though he played for a number of teams during his career, it seems clear that Butler still has quite a bit of interest in the success of the Heat.
It will be interesting to see if Butler’s desire to see the pairing of the two NBA stars in Miami comes to fruition. If it does, the Heat will likely be considered dark horse competitors to advance deep in this season’s postseason.
