I’m a big fan of Butler. Hard worker, talented, tough, versatile and in his prime.
His former coach just refused to give up Kris Dunn for him. His current team tried to trade him for Dunn, and is trying to trade him for 2 or 3 years nos.
He’s been kind of an agitator in Chicago since becoming the alpha, and the results he’s bringing in the East are so-so.
He doesn’t put you over the top against the Cavs, Spurs or Warriors. How is he more valuable right now, inclusive this situation, than a possible #1?
