Butler was heavily coveted as the Los Angels Lakers were the real threat but Butler didn't own his rights the Bulls did. A Restricted Free Agent Butler was the Bulls leading scorer at 20 ppg in 65 games adding 5.8 boards and 3.3 helpers.
"Jimmy G. Buckets" , the name given to Butler by Bulls T.V. Color Man and former Player Stacey King, went to his first All-Star Game in 2014-15 and was 2nd team All-Defense as well. Now with new lead man Fred Hoiberg in the mix and a new style both John Paxson (VP of OPS) and Gar Forman (GM) had an easy sale to Jimmy and he knew all along he wasn't going anywhere selling "Wolf Tickets". You know running your mouth doing absolutely nothing which was a good thing for Bulls Nation and Butler's Back court mate D-Rose.
Now the "Butler" did it can the Bulls get a 3rd Scoring Guard in the Fold and I was hoping they would grab PG Tyus Jones as I question the motor on Mr. Bobby Portis...stay tuned!
