    Butler has a lot of defensive potential, but needs 6 months of nothing but cheeseburgers to put weight on his 7'1", 174 lb frame. Shot 67% from '3' during SL for the NOP averaging 8.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1 block.

    Just glad it wasn't another guard.

    They must view him as a long-term project. Tall with a nice ourside shot. Good start........

    At least it's a center even if he is skinny. He only weighs like 7 more pounds than me though.

    He shot about 68% from 3 in summer league or preseason for New Orleans and is a decent shot blocker but he can definitely guard out on the perimeter. With Sarr out with wrist problem this is a timely signing. Can we please nickname him String Bean?

    After 15 years, we finally have the next KD. . . On a more serious note, how is he 40% from 3-pointers but 44% free throws??
