    This is a good signing because the Bulls really didn’t have a defensive back up for Deng at the 3. I don’t expect Butler to shake up any of the current rotations too much. He may be broght in to spell Deng at times. That’s about it.

    He’s a good three point shooter…..it would be a nice option to run a Rose, Butler, Korver, Noah, Boozer lineup to stretch the floor….something they can’t do with Bogans or Brewer.

    good pickup. Shooter, good wing defender, make the right plays. Can provide a little bit of what John Salmons did for them. Del Negro has had no clue how to use him in LAC

    i honestly think he’s going to be a nice surprise for the bulls. don’t ask why, cuz i don’t know. i just do

    good sign

  • Fab-5 Elite

    I would of preferred Corey Brewer to the Bulls… O’Well

  • rubs93

    dunno how I feel bout this one. whats the difference between him and kover? does he at least try to play D unlike kover? Is he a better shooter this season? Drop some info slam community..

    I mean, he’s a good player, no doubt.
    But it’s gonna be hard as hell for him to get some PT.
    Thibs has his guys and he trusts his guys, and his rotation is set.
    The popular opinion is that he can back up Deng and Deng can finally have some much needed rest.
    I just don’t see that going down. Thibs relies on Deng for way too much and doesn’t like not having him on the floor for too long.

    Man he is just a black kyle kover with a broker 3pt shot. i dont think i have ever seen him take a 2pt shot or a lay up

    Start him at the SG position. I know he’s a small forward but he is a major upgrade to Keith Bogans because at least Butler can hit an open jump shot.

    would he be eligible for the playoffs? isnt the deadline today?

    Eastern Conference Finals!!!
    I think we should easily beat Miami, Boston is going to be tough though.

    @Diesel – how do you think the Bulls will fare this week against the Hawks, Magic and Heat?
    Being the pessimist that I am, and knowing they’re not nearly as good on the road as they are at home, I’d be happy if they won 1 of the 3.

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/2011 Diesel

    I’m predicting 2 out of the 3. Atlanta matches up well with the Bulls and they always play us well…especially on the road. They’ve won like 7 of the last 9 or something like that, but I think Bulls pull it out. With a full squad starting to click we should beat Orlando too. The Miami game is the one that I’m not sure about. So I’ll stick with 2 out of the next 3. But I’m not confident in it. This week will clear up the playoff picture a lot more.

    Butler is a better fit w/the Knicks. He can drain bombs from the downtown. WALSH needs to drop Bill Walker and pick Butler up. To the KNICKS, baybay!

  • Danno

    Has anyone watched this guy this year ??? Totally lost on the court, can’t hit a shot. If he can’t get playing time with the Clippers…….

    Whats the hold-up with the Mike Bibby signing? And wheres Corey Brewer headed?? (I need to update my NBA2k11)

  • Marvin

    @BossTerry Bibs is going 2 MIA, with them dropping Arroyo. & Brew is going 2 the Mavs

    Good, solid pick-up.

    He’s as good a shooter as Korver is. And he’s a better defender than Korver is.
    Good move for both parties.

  • dsleepy

    man they really need a 2guard tho. this team would be sick if they had like a raja bell at the 2.

    Wow…with no disrespect to the Bulls, but how many “We didn’t get LeBron” consolation prizes will you get? Won’t get past Atlanta in the playoffs.
