The 76ers clearly would love for Jimmy Butler to 'run it back' with them. Ben Simmons recently created an Instagram Post that said #runitback and Butler and Tobias Harris liked it and last Friday, Natalie Egenolf of The Mike Missanelli Show on 97.5 The Fanatic reported that a contractor in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania saw Butler in that he bought a $6 million house in Ambler, a borough in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. This information was verified by a UPS driver.
The Knicks, Clippers, Lakers, Nets and Rockets are all the star guard and perhaps the most surprising team on the list are the Bulls, where Butler spent the first six seasons of his NBA career.
