NBA 2K18: 10 Players Who Should Get A Stat Boost

10. Jimmy Butler - Minnesota Timberwolves

2K Sports

It remains to be seen just how effective Jimmy Butler's move to Minnesota will prove, but one thing's fore sure - the Chicago Bulls have lost their key man heading into 2017/18.

The franchise endured a mixed season, almost failing to make the playoffs before racing into a 2-0 lead against the Boston Celtics - the no. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. They were subsequently eliminated, losing four straight games in the process, but wouldn't have even reached that stage were it not for their 6'7" swingman.

Butler didn't have the most spectacular of seasons (in a year with one of the most hotly-contested MVP races ever), but still proved himself a star player. He had a career year in terms of average points, rebounds, assists and steals, and was voted into the All-NBA Third Team. Although not as spectacular as his Most Improved award in 2014/15, he's still had an impressive year, and will be greatly missed in Chicago.
