Jimmy Butler thanked Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade for their help after getting traded by the Chicago Bulls.

Butler was ‘hurt’ by the trade, but his friends Anthony and Wade supported him and told him everything was going to be fine.

Butler was in Paris with Anthony and Wade when the Bulls traded him to the Minnesota Timberwolves back in June 2017.

“Ya’ll helped me through that though. I remember sitting at the dinner and ya’ll was like, ‘Yo, you’re still a helluva player. You’re gonna go do what you were doing in Chicago in Minnesota. You’re gonna change the culture there…I was hurt,” Butler told Carmelo Anthony on IG live.
