Every NBA fan is aware with the story surrounding Stephen Curry's rise to prominence and the Golden State Warriors' achievements. In NBA basketball, the Golden Dynasty ruled the late 2010s. They even won a title in 2022, demonstrating their success far into the early 2020s. 

Stephen Curry is among the greatest basketball players in history. Because of his exceptional shooting skill, he completely changed how offence is played in the NBA. But thirty-six is also the age of the best shooter to have ever played the game.

With Klay Thompson showing signs of age and ready to enter unrestricted free agency, the window for another title with Curry at the lead is closing. According to Warriors insider Anthony Slater of The Athletic, the franchise has a plan in place to maximize Curry's remaining years in the NBA.

As per GiveMeSports, “We discussed some of the Warriors’ options on our offseason preview podcast. Two quick situations of note: If Brandon Ingram hits the trade market, I would not expect the Warriors to show interest. If the Heat shop Jimmy Butler, I would expect the Warriors to enter the conversation to at least some degree.”

Miami Heat has chance to Jimmy Butler

Curry and Jimmy Butler may rapidly become one of the finest combos in the Western Conference, perhaps blowing up a title window that was about to close. Butler presently has a player option for the 2025-2026 season. This makes the upcoming season on Butler's deal the final guaranteed season in which he will wear a Miami Heat jersey.

Miami Heat run the possibility of losing Butler for nothing if they don't let go of him this summer, if any of the rumours about their relationship are true. As the starting point guard for the Heat, Butler has led them to two NBA Finals and is a six-time All-Star and five-time All-NBA player. It seems out of character for Pat Riley's regular goal to watch someone of his calibre just walk. 

Butler is thirty-four years old, and his injury troubles are unlikely to go away soon. Butler has not played more than 65 games in any of his five seasons with the Heat. His healthiest season with the team came in 2022-2023, when he played 64 games before guiding Miami to one of the most unlikely Finals trips of all time, advancing from the Play-In Tournament.
