Uhh pretty sure Butler is a better offensive and defensive player than anyone we have on this team right now. The Bulls aren't as dumb as the Kings, but I wish. This is a deal that you don't even think about. The best case scenario is Russell becomes as good as Butler, and he will NEVER become the defensive talent he is. You do this deal, and try to get George or whoever you can in FA. Let Ingram and Ball develop, and you are working with something good.
Remember we are severely lacking defense on this team. I don't know if Nance is good enough to start, and Ingram is the only other guy that cares about playing any defense. Add in the fact that Butler can actually create his own shot, and it's not even a question.
Still think the Celts trade Fultz for him, though.
