A day after it was reported that Jimmy Butler challenged Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown about his role in the offense, Brown downplayed any possible friction between the two.
"As I've said to the team a moment ago, I've had many meetings with Jimmy. In the film session, I didn't think it went over the line. If it did, I would've addressed it," Brown said, according to Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times.
Brown said Butler's criticism was a "non-story" and that the response was "unfair" to the player, according to Michael Lee of The Athletic.
