Jimmy Butler chartered jet so Tyus Jones could attend brother’s Duke game

Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler did something pretty cool to help out one of his teammates.

Butler heard his Minnesota Timberwolves teammate Tyus Jones talking about wanting to watch his brother Tre’s first college basketball game with Duke. So Butler chartered a jet to take them to Indianapolis for the game — a great matchup between Duke and Kentucky.

Butler was unable to make it, but he kept the plane so Jones could make the trip.

“That’s my guy, that’s my guy,” Jones told ESPN about Butler. “Very selfless.”

Jones’ Timberwolves played on Monday at the Clippers and face the Lakers in LA on Wednesday, so he should be back in LA in time for the game.
