Report: Butler to meet with Heat, Rockets

Unrestricted free agent Jimmy Butler reportedly is expected to meet with the Miami Heat in South Florida on Sunday and the Houston Rockets next week, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets are also interested, according to reports.

The Philadelphia 76ers, who acquired Butler last November from Minnesota, are also considering a sign-and-trade deal with Butler, which Miami and Houston would need since both teams lack the kind of cap space they would need to sign the All-Star guard.

Butler averaged 18.2 points on 46.1 shooting in 55 games with the Sixers last season as Philadelphia finished with a 51-31 mark, third best in the Eastern Conference.
