2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Versatile player who fits the mold of what a small forward should do pass, score, and rebound … Athletic loves to run the floor really excels playing in transition excellent finisher … Has a very quick first step this enables him to penetrate to the basket with ease once there he knows how to draw fouls … Blessed with quick hands Butler is already a impressive defender on defense opposing players must watch there dribble and passes or turnovers could be the result … Excellent rebounder has long arms and wonderful leaping ability to compensate for lack of height … Although still developing Butler's leadership qualities have made him a loud voice when his team is in a huddle … An above average shooter of the dribble usually will stop and shoot from about 16 feet … Solid ball handler often when Taliek Brown was prevented from getting the ball Butler was able to run the break … Has a strong body able to play in the NBA the moment he steps on the court … Explosive scorer can score in bunches when he gets hot … Fundamentally sound player who along with his athleticism , and potential make him a target for scouts this year… Has no problem creating offense for himself and due to his passing ability he has no problem creating for teammates either …

Weakness: Butler’s shot selection at this moment isn’t the best as he seems to think every shot is a good one but he will get better in time … While his defense is extremely good lateral quickness is a problem one has to wonder if the lighting quick small forwards and shooting guards of the NBA might be too much for him to guard … Not much of a 3-point threat as he only seems to be effective when his feet are set … Doesn’t always play focused has had times were his attention seemed to be elsewhere … Although he has the size in college to do this post up moves are far from being reliable … Ball protection needs to be worked on as he turns the ball over too much … Still has problems shooting consistently from 20 feet this is mainly due to his mechanics as he doesn’t always follow throw on his release ...

He had a very good career could never get by Lebron's Cavs but still had some good years.
