He can't defend Allen, Wade/Miller, Johnson/Crawford, Arenas/JRich, Fields, Iguodala, Rush/Jones, Jackson, Salmons, Morrow, Gordon, DeRozan, Young, Parker, Ginoboli, Beaubois, Kobe, Sefolosha, Green, Matthews/Roy, Afflalo/Smith, Mayo/Henry, Miles, Carter, Martin, Ellis, Gordon, Evans.
Maybe Wesley Johnson, maybe he can defend him.
Bogans can defend 1/2 that list reasonably well in this system. Brewer can defend everyone on that list with some more than others, but Butler can't defend anyone at this point in his career.
He'll put out a 100% effort after he gets picked up initially, then he'll be a benchwarmer for the rest of the season because he simply not motivated to play enough D to offset any scoring benefit he can add.
