Got something to say to NBA star Jimmy Butler? Then phone him.
The Minnesota Timberwolves’ newest recruit decided to give out his cell number at his introductory press conference on Thursday.
“My phone’s in my back pocket right now,” said the former Chicago Bulls player, while fielding questions about his possible impact on his new teammates.
Social media users initially speculated that he’d given out a fake number.
But as Bleacher Report staff writer Joon Lee soon discovered, the digits that 27-year-old Butler doled out did in fact appear to be the real deal:
