-Quin needs to abandon the 9 man rotation. Butler needs consistent minutes to develop.
- Clarkson looked better in the small ball switching defense than I expected. I don't think Conley or Mitchell can play in those lineups, so that is key.
- Oni was so bad offensively, but him and Royce were so good in the switching defense.

Wow, Butler looks amazing. The game seems slowed down for him. Thurl and Boler used the word beautiful over and over to describe his game.
The Mavs announcers likened him to Isiah Thomas and Chris Paul. Take that with a grain of salt but that’s pretty high marks for his second career game.

Could someone help me understand Butler's contract details? I'm pretty sure we have him on a 2 year deal, but what happens after that? Will he be restricted? Can we go over the cap to keep him? Will not picking him up in the first round end up costing us?

Just watched the highlights and it seems like we have a steal in Butler. He's completely in control out there, confident, and doesn't seem to be afraid of the moment. Has great court vision as well.

I'm excited about him.

Oh no, you went there, didn't you?

Not really comforted by the comparison after Tim McMahon was mumbling something on the Spence Checketts show the other day about many teams not confident that Butler's knees will even make it to a second NBA contract.
Haha I know. I didn’t mean to go there, he’s who came to mind just watching him

Didn’t they both agree he was the most entertaining player to watch in the game? Also was it Anthony that compared him to Thomas, interesting since he played against him.

Super encouraging game. They play their starters and we come out without ours and only lose by 10. Butler was fantastic (minus the threes) and Teague showed he deserves some more minutes so we can see if he deserves a spot.

Fitts (who the heck is he?) was popping threes; if he keeps it up that second 2-way could well go to him since James got dumped.

He shot 3-7 from three that’s really good. 42%
