With Butler's emergence, Artest can be deemed as simply an expirer who can spend most of his day rotting on the bench until situations seem fit (a body to throw at Lebron and other troublesome wing players in the playoffs).
Also, as a Bulls fan, you should understand that if you expect a team to take that poison pill of contract your team's organization allocated to Boozer in 2010, then they will have to give up something of value in exchange. Considering that they'd be receiving Gasol, who would be the best player on your roster aside from Rose, I think its an exchange that offers more benefits than repercussions.
