PHILADELPHIA | Brown: Butler wasn’t disrespectful when questioning role
PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia coach Brett Brown denied a report that Jimmy Butler was disrespectful while questioning his role in the 76ers offense.
A report published on Friday said that Butler recently challenged Brown in a disrespectful way and wants to be utilized differently in the coach’s offensive scheme.
Brown dismissed the report before Saturday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.
“I didn’t feel like any of that crossed the line,” Brown said.
