Report: NBA scout claims Jimmy Butler has no more upside for rest of career
- Updated: December 19, 2020
Yet, one scout told Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel that Butler has no more upside.
“He has no more upside. He can only go down. I’d say a 4,” the scout ranked Butler on a scale from 1 to 10 with one meaning there’s no more upside and 10 meaning there’s still unlimited untapped potential. “I’d be shocked if he does more, but that’s also because he reached his ultimate potential last season. More? I’d be surprised.”
Butler, 31, is entering his second season in Miami.
Last season, he collected 19.9 points on top of career-highs of 6.7 rebounds and 6.0 assists per contest. He made the All-Star team and an All-NBA team last season.
Still, Butler willed the Heat to a pair of victories.
As a matter of fact, the veteran put up 40 points, 13 assists, 11 boards, two blocks and two steals in the Heat’s Game 3 win over the Lakers. The Heat didn’t have the services of Adebayo and Dragic in that epic contest.
Butler averaged 26.2 points, 9.8 assists, 8.3 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game in the 2020 NBA Finals.
