According to a report by Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Butler, who isn't exactly known for his subtlety, has "aggressively" challenged Brett Brown with regards to his role within the team's offense.
One specific instance occurred during Philly's recent road trip to Portland, when Butler called Brown out during a film session in what witnesses considered a "disrespectful" manner.
That said, Brown has reportedly told those within the organization that he had no issues with his exchange with Butler, and considered it within the confines of the relationship that he's developed with the 29-year old star.
Butler's intense style has rubbed some people in the past wrong, which makes his fit with the organization long term a concern. The five-time All-Star can become a free agent this Summer, but Philadelphia remains committed to making the Big-3 of Butler, Embiid and Simmons work in the long-term.

The Sixers are now 25-14 and sit in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Rival teams believe Butler will eventually decide to take meetings with interested suitors in July.
According to the report, upper management has placed "an urgency for Brown and his coaching staff to stabilize the situation". Butler's preference has been to sign a more lucrative deal to remain with the Sixers, but it's clear that there are issues to be worked out before that comfort level fully exists.
The problem for Butler exists in his offensive role and he has thus challenged coach Brett Brown for the same, asking him for some clarity and some changes. "We have a new opportunity". Ben and Jo, Jo and Jimmy, go anywhere you want.
There's always a feeling out period when acquiring a new player, especially in season. "That's why I lost it", Embiid said. Fultz's future with the team, or as a basketball player actually, is completely up in the air. "Nothing to talk about".
