Jimmy Butler, who was traded from the Chicago Bulls to the Minnesota Timberwolves on draft night, has a bold strategy for critics: Call him.
At his introductory press conference, Butler gave out a phone number, saying he had his phone in his back pocket and that whoever had anything to say to him should feel free to call.
Watch the exchange below:
The number (if you're interested in chatting) is 773-899-6071. Although many people reported reaching a full mailbox when they called the number, Butler posted an Instagram video later in the day of him answering FaceTime calls.
Butler joins the Timberwolves after six years with the Bulls.
