Damn you Isiah, Should have used the MLE on Butler.
Why? Butler just isn't that good. He brings nothing to the table the Knicks need.
He's not a good defender, positional or situational, nor is he a good rebounder. He's average at best on both fronts.
As for why he's not running with the Spurs...
First, you can't really make a case that he's flat out better than any of the guys in front of him?
Second, the Spurs coaching staff has never been especially good at developing big man talent. Outside of the ready made product they got in Tim Duncan they never had a young big (PF or C) that shown much improvement.
