Tom Thibodeau is likely to use Jimmy Butler as a small-ball four in some lineups this season.
Shortly after Minnesota's season came to an end Thibodeau said that he likes playing Butler at the four in a lineup that includes two point guards, and that still seems to be the case. Regardless of which position Butler plays he's going to see plenty of minutes (36.7 mpg last season), as he's a key cog in the attack and one of the NBA's best all-around players. But it should be noted that there's a lot more riding on this plan working than the team's hopes in 2018-19, as Butler can opt out of his contract and become a free agent next summer.
