Biography: There isn't much that stands out about Butler at first glimpse, but that's nothing new to the Texas native. Recruiters weren't exactly beating down Butler's doors after high school, and that led him to enroll at Tyler Junior College, where he became an honorable mention All-American. Unsolicited, Marquette coach Buzz Williams sent him a letter of intent immediately after taking the job, and Butler grew from a seldom-used reserve at the beginning of his sophomore season to the team's second-leading scorer his final two years. Scouts rave about Butler's basketball IQ. and his intangibles, but those alone aren't what earned him the Portsmouth Invitational's MVP award. Butler's best trait is his defensive ability, which he used to lock down some of the Big East's best scorers as a junior and senior. He can score inside and outside, and is a solid rebounder and decent passer. The concerns about Butler's game are rooted in his lack of outstanding athleticism, but Marquette has a way of turning seemingly so-so athletes - i.e. Jerel McNeal and Lazar Hayward - into at least fringe NBA players. Former teammate Wesley Matthews hit it big with Portland in his second NBA season, but perhaps better comparisons for Butler are Knicks forward Landry Fields and Mavericks swingman Corey Brewer. With the versatility to defend shooting guards and small forwards, a solid midrange game and the willingness to work to maximize his skill set, it's a good bet Butler will be off the board somewhere in the middle of the second round.
