It’s that time of the year.
Time to follow the trail of social media clues and see where it leads us. Does it lead us to any concrete information about Sixers free agency? Or does the trail lead us to the world’s biggest nothing burger?
Jimmy Butler has been out and about since the season ended. He spent some time with Mark Wahlberg and coached his daughter. In recent Instagram videos he’s been spotted with Sixers Player Development Specialist Remy Ndiaye.
From Butler’s IG story:

Yes, that’s Butler referring to Remy as “Rem Job,” which doesn’t surprise me.
Ndiaye appears in other IG stories, after the jump:

I’m not sure who the child on the left is, looks like the son of a friend from what I can tell. He gets power-bombed onto the pillows in the video clip, which was pretty funny. But the takeaway is that he’s wearing Sixers gear. That’s another breadcrumb, something else to latch onto.
Beyond that, I’ve heard the same rumor everybody else has, that Butler bought a house up in Ambler. I have no idea if that’s true or not, have not be able to confirm one way or another, so take it with a grain of salt. It is, however, probably worth checking out, if anybody wants to canvass the entirety of Ambler.
Also, if you have a minute, read this story about Ndiaye from Serena Winters. The Sixers surprised him with a trip home to his native Senegal this past season.
