Default Glancing at Bulls summer league results

CSN Chicago:

Although the team was probably one of the least-talented groups in "Sin City," the Bulls still managed to land two players, swingman Jimmy Butler and power forward Malcolm Thomas, to the summer league's all-star team.

Butler, heading into his second season, was extremely impressive as a scorer, relentlessly driving his way to the basket, drawing fouls and even knocking down mid-range jumpers. Combined with his defensive acumen and vocal leadership, the Marquette product appears poised to fill the departed Ronnie Brewer's role as a backup wing player, though he'll certainly have growing pains in his first campaign seeing regular action and will likely get better with experience.

Default Re: Glancing at Bulls summer league results

Bulls.com reports:

Chicago’s 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 he’s ready to take on a bigger role this coming season. With the departure of Ronnie Brewer and Kyle Korver, it’s an opportunity he’s 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.
