Jimmy Butler free agency rumors: Rockets will be ‘aggressive in their pursuit’ of wing

The Rockets are looking to add another star this summer.

Houston is expected to be “aggressive” in its pursuit of Jimmy Butler, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle. The team believes he is an “ideal fit on both ends of court” and can help push it “to the top of the wide-open West,” the report says.

Butler began the season with the Timberwolves before he was sent to the 76ers in mid-November. He averaged 18.2 points and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 33.8% from 3-point range in 55 regular season games with Philadelphia.

The 76ers are also reportedly interested in re-signing Butler while he has been linked to the Lakers and Nets, as well.
