All that being said, given the Bulls are likely to hold on to the players they currently have, what do they actually have in Butler? Is he a better long term fit as a SG, SF, or do-it-all 6th man as Sam Smith has suggested? Can he be an all-star if he improves his shot?
I tend to think, or at least hope, that he will develop into an all-star one day. With his work ethic and athleticism I can see his shot improving each year and his ball handling improving as well.
With Butler's emergence, Mirotic in the pipeline, and the Charlotte pick to go with a nucleus of Rose, Deng, and Noah just coming into their primes, I don't see any bold moves ahead. Thoughts?
