Re: Opinion: Should Jimmy Butler start at the 2 when Deng is back?
I think he should play the 2. The Bulls are most likely not going to pick up the 3rd year on Rip's contract and plus they have been trying to trade him this season. Once the offseason comes he can work on that jumpshot and start with D-Rose in the backcourt next season. Jimmy and Belineli are both actuallt scoring 15.3ppg as starters but Jimmy grabs more rebounds and dishes out more assist than Belineli. The only think that Belineli has is a higher FG and 3PT percent than Jimmy. Belineli could backup Deng. Rose took Jimmy under his wing after he got drafted and they worked out together and thats something that can could really help them establish the backcourt.
