76ers’ Jimmy Butler Says He Will Be Done Before He Turns 35

Philadelphia 76ers swingman Jimmy Butler doesn’t plan on pushing his playing career deep into his 30s, in fact he doesn’t see himself playing at age 35, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Keith Pompey.

“I don’t plan on playing this game when I’m 35 years old,” Butler said. “So I’m not even worried about that. I’ll be done with this game before I’m 35.”

Butler, 29, has been a tremendous fit with the 76ers, who will do what they can to sign him during the offseason, but Butler has clear plans on the duration of his career, regardless of where he plays.

“That’s between me and whatever I tell myself later on,” Butler said. “But, I’m telling you right now, 35, I’m trying to be done before then.”
