Jimmy Butler’s Miami Heat jersey now available at NBAStore.com

With all the big moves that happened in this year’s free agency frenzy, Jimmy Butler‘s move into a Miami Heat jersey was lost in the shuffle of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving sharing a two bedroom flat in Brooklyn and Kawhi Leonard and Paul George‘s homecoming to Southern California.

As great as Jimmy Butler has been over the last five years, those superstars commanded all the headlines and talking heads.

We were just getting used to seeing Jimmy Buckets in a Philadelphia Sixer jersey. Here’s a look at Jimmy Butler’s official Miami Heat jerseys:

So when Jimmy Butler first puts on his new NBA jersey – what number will he wear? This will be Jimmy Butler’s fourth NBA team and in his last three teams, he wore #21 with the Chicago Bulls and #23 with both the Minnesota Timberwolves and Philadelphia 76ers. He won’t be able to wear #23 as the Heat retired that number in honor of Michael Jordan back in 2003. That leaves #21 which was worn by Hassan Whiteside, who was recently traded away to the Portland Trailblazers.

Whatever number Butler chooses, the 6’4 guard will look great in the team’s Miami Vice inspired City jerseys.

Jimmy Butler Brings the Heat

There’s no doubt that Jimmy Butler is a good NBA player and one of the league’s most competitive player.

Despite the trouble in Minnesota and changing teams three times in that many years, Butler is a four-time NBA All-Star, been named to an All-NBA Team twice and a 4x All-Defense selection. Still in today’s NBA, he’ll need more help. That’s especially true with the Heat trading away their three best players. As we mentioned, Whiteside is already gone, Josh Richardson was traded away in the Butler move, and the Heat are actively looking to trade Goran Dragic.

The recent rumors of Russell Westbrook potentially joining Butler in South Beach would be an interesting pair up of two the league’s most fiery players. We’re not sure how well the Heat will do in the coming season, but we have a feeling that no matter what Butler will become a popular jersey across the league – perhaps even one of the NBA’s top-selling uniforms.
