Re: Glancing at Bulls summer league results
Chicagoís Jimmy Butler and Malcolm Thomas were among 13 players selected to receive 2012 NBA Summer League All-Star status. Voting was done by NBA TV and various NBA scouts as the games came to an end this past weekend in Las Vegas.
For Butler, it may have been an early indication that heís ready to take on a bigger role this coming season. With the departure of Ronnie Brewer and Kyle Korver, itís an opportunity heís talked openly about embracing. In recording three 20+ point games during summer league play, he let his play speak for itself.
Thomas, on the other hand, hopes that his summer league effort was enough to help secure a full time spot on an NBA roster. Last season, the 6-9, 225-pound forward played in three games for the San Antonio Spurs, while splitting time among three teams in the NBA Developmental League.
