Ex-NBA guard Dwyane Wade, who spent the majority of his 16-year career playing for the Miami Heat, shared his thoughts on the Heat’s newly-acquired swingman Jimmy Butler:

“I think it’s going to fare well with him. And I think the guys on the team will be energized to have a guy like Jimmy there to push them. So, I look forward to them having a way better season obviously then we did the last seasons here in Miami,” Wade said, per Brandon Robinson of Heavy.

This past season, Butler averaged 18.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 4.0 assists per game. Wade, meanwhile, averaged 13.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists per contest in his final season.
