Jimmy Butler is not happy with his role on offense

After Jimmy Butler was acquired in a trade from the Timberwolves there was a sense that he finally found a team that would perfectly fit him in every way possible. Both teams profited from the trade and it seemed at least from the initial reports, Jimmy Butler was finally happy with his new team and the environment he was in.

However, things obviously changed quickly as it seems according to different reports that Butler showed disrespect towards the coach Brett Brown. The main reason for Butler's displeasure is his current role in Philadelphia's offense.

The recent conflict came during the recent film session in Portland and it definitely wasn't the ordinary type of communication you would expect from a player and a coach.

Brown has told people within the organization that he had no issues with that exchange and considered it within the confines of the relationship that he's developed with Butler, sources said.

There were previous concerns about the possibility of Jimmy Butler not being able to adapt to the new team and the culture that is already established with the Sixers. All of this raises concerns about the possibility of Sixers management offering Butler a long-term contract.

While a source close to Butler contends that his intense, direct style can come off as combative as he's trying to make clear his viewpoints, Butler's sluggish assimilation into the Sixers environment is causing some concern about his long-term viability and fit with the organization. Ownership has been committed to making the Big 3 of Embiid, Simmons and Butler work, especially with Butler's free agency looming this summer.

It will be interesting to see how will this play out in the upcoming days because adding Jimmy Butler to the roster helped the Sixers achieve a 14-8 record and they are currently sitting on the 4th spot in the eastern conference.
