Jimmy Butler posted a picture with Kelly Olynyk. Would a reunion help the Heat?

Jimmy Butler recently posted a picture of himself with former teammate Kelly Olynyk on his Instagram Story. The photo got some thinking — would the Miami Heat welcome a reunion with the Canadian?

Olynyk developed great chemistry with Bam Adebayo during their three-and-a-half seasons together. He can shoot 3-pointers. He also is a skilled passer. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have the defensive ability to relieve Adebayo and Butler from taking on tough assignments, as P.J. Tucker and Jae Crowder did.

In the 2020-21 season, both Butler and Adebayo made the All-Defensive Second Team, but they were two of the only Heat players who could hold their own on defense that year.
