With the 2019 NBA Finals over, the Los Angeles Lakers and 28 teams can focus on improving their rosters to dethrone the Toronto Raptors now for the 2019-20 NBA season. With a lot of cap space and a Top-5 pick, there will be plenty of Lakers rumors about what will be happening.

In light of recent injuries to Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, teams could turn their attention towards Butler as he will can make an intimidate impact.

This should help other free agents this offseason, as the injuries to those two might have driven the price up for others. Butler now might be moving up a bit in the eyes of some teams, and should be poised for a big day.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Jimmy Butler will not opt into his $19.8 million player option for the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season, according to a report from Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. If Butler opts to sign with another team, he could earn north of $140 million over the course of four seasons.

She succeeded Sean Spicer, Trump's first press secretary, in July 2017 and was the third female to hold the position in history. Trump wrote in his announcement that Sanders should run to be governor of Arkansas, a theme he returned to on Thursday.

The Sixers are expected to offer Butler a max contract, while the Los Angeles Lakers also have a genuine interest in pairing Butler with LeBron James, according to Haynes. Depending on whether Brooklyn retains restricted free agent D'Angelo Russell, there could be room for another max-contract player in NYC. On the Philadelphia 76ers, Butler played well as always.
